General What is your overall opinion of this product? It's not cheap, but there is something very different about this Strat that is heads above any of the others that I own. Tone, sustain, comfort, and playability. This guitar has everything the others should. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Top quality construction. Seems to have been built in an old school way including the parts and components used. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? By far the most comfortable Strat I own. Very smooth ride. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Perfect tone. This is the best toned guitar that I've ever owned. Something about the old school parts perhaps. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very cool lacquer finish. Seems antique in feel. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? More than I expected. For the price I was pleasantly surprised. Well worth the price due to overall tone and performance. Playability How was the action out of the box? Seems very well setup. No buzzes, and the action is right.
Awesome Guitar. Pickups Are Great

General Your general opinion of this product. Best New Production Strat I Have Played Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This Is A Very High Quality Insrument Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pickups Are Warm. Have Great Mid range Growl. It comes Stock With A Three Way. I Elected To Install A Five Way And Now I Have My Two And Four Position Strat Sounds That I So Dearly Love. Pickups Split Exceptionally Well. Not Hard To Do. Look Online For HSH With Auto Split The Pickups Are Four Wire. You Just Need To Peel Back The Shrink Tubing To Reveal The Other Two Wires Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very Good In Summary I Like Iron Maiden And Dave Murray But That Is Not Why I Bought It. I Could Tell It Was A Versatile Tone Machine From Reviews And Specs It Was Of Course Designed To Dave's Specs. For My Needs Installing A Five Way Puts IT In Another League
99% Pure Iron Maiden!

General Your general opinion of this product. The ONLY thing this guitar is lacking is that ever elusive 22cond fret! WHY I ask fellow musicians do they make an incomplete octave? 24 frets would make it an even 2 octave neck but I digress, 22 will add a world of all of those "Beginning of the "You got another thing comin" solo intros. ALOT of Metalheads are switching to other brands (which sucks for the Americans employed @ the Fender USA factory) such as Schecter, ESP/LTD, Charvel ETC. Because Fender is a little slow on asking &/ or changing specs to keep up with the times on certain models. Just so everyone remembers all of my opinions are just that: My opinions. Thanks 4 reading & stay true to the Metal no matter WHAT you use! Up The Irons! BTW before you write to say that "Another thing comin' is Judas Priest" forget it - I KNOW that I also know that the 2 bands are good friends & helped each other achieve a higher level of success in the USA. God bless! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes. As usual Fender rules in this category on both of the above mentioned. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Just listen to the smooth AND chunky that Dave Murray gets & you'll get very near the same here which is a very cool feature on a Strat built for Crunch/Solos/Metal, etc. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Amazing
Very Nice
