General What is your overall opinion of this product? You can't go wrong with this MIM Strat. I've owned American Strats and other than the "made by" and serial number (as well as pickups) you can't tell the difference. The finish, hardware, action, it's all there and it's done right. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Plays great for everything! Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Fast, great action, nothing feels cheap on this guitar- nothing is cheap on this guitar except for the price (in comparison to the American models). Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Tone is good... a tad on the thin side. I purchased with the intent to upgrade the pickups, but don't feel the need to. The pickups on the MIM have gotten pretty darn good! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is perfect. Not one flaw. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Of course it's a great value! Honestly can't do better. Playability How was the action out of the box? Playability out of the box was great. Action was just right and intonation was just right. My experience with American Musical has been great. Received my guitar in just two days and packed very well.

General Your general opinion of this product. The appearance and action were unbelievable. The ceramic pick-ups are great for all of the "Strat" tones that I was looking for. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Overall quality is all I could expect, and more. Somebody at MIM Fender took the time to set this thing up to a level of playability that I have rarely experienced in over 50 years of playing/purchasing guitars. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It gives you a full range of tones. And if you have an old tube amp around, this thing will let it sing. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The "brown burst" is actually a very dark two-tone finish, similar to the mid-fifties' versions. Flawless on my model.
Brilliant

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Uses more stock parts and non aged plastic etc but it really feels and plays like the MIA Std Strat... this is awesome value for money and MOST of the $550 you save over the USA product would be employee costs... General Your general opinion of this product. Excellent action, highly playable Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? best Pup positions are 1,2 and 4 Finish How did the stain or paint job look? perfect, went over it with a fine tooth comb
Great guitar for the money
