Like it so much I own two of them
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I am 61 years old. Bought my first Fender guitar (Mustang) when I was 15 years old. I have been playing synth guitar since 1987, own 25 guitars, and believe this guitar to be, without a doubt, the best value in the marketplace. I like it so much I own two of them.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The workmanship, fit and finish is exactly what is to be expected from a Fender product. It is easy to play and set up.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
What can I say? It's a Fender guitar. Players like them because they feel right when playing.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Anyone who owns a Strat already knows the variable sounds one can get from the pickups. This model is no different. I can go from twang to bang to smooth by just flipping a switch. It has extremely tight tracking of the midi pickup which makes using as a synth easy to play.
How did the stain or paint job look?
My first one I purchased new in 1995 and played at least once a week. (I play other instruments as well) The second one I purchased used and has some upgrades I would recommend such as locking tuners and upgraded pickups. The pickups on this one are Dimarzios which are a little hotter, but my stock one is just fine the way it is.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I got way more than expected for the money. I really wanted an American made Strat in this configuration and they were around at the time, however after playing this Mexican made one I could not justify the increased cost other than keeping some American luthiers working.
How was the action out of the box?
Mine came with light strings when new,even the used one had them. Anyone who plays synth guitar know that the more mass in the strings, the better the tracking. I changed to stainless steel 10's which required a tweak in the setup and haven't had to change in over 15 years.
