BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK
By: ROCK ON BOB from DELTONA. FL. USA
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I bought this back in june 2013 after pro setup stays in tune even with extreme trem use, very easy play with 9's and the sound is great on all p/u positions, after adjustments nice straight neck with very little relife and very low action no buzzing. Bought it right here at ams.Very happy with this guitar.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Can play all types of music on this and is very good quality, save your money with this mim plays just as good as mia. After all this is what we had back in the day 21 frets not 22 & six point trem not 2 point. Yngwie Malmsteen used to shred on strats back in the 80's even now.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Guitar is not very heavy at all neck is very fast morden c shape not regular c shape and all controls within reach and easy to get to while playing.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Standard strat pup's can get any tone you need.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Plus top big plus, wonderful flame maple even adds to the sound.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I got more than I expected and right now you can get a free tweed case with it I had to buy mine but I did get free custom shop tweed cable 18.6 ft. $39 value with the case.
How was the action out of the box?
Not very good out the box very bowed neck & very high action I made all adjustments myself then took it to a pro to work in trem so it stays in tune. He also set p/u hieght & checked intonation for me which I set right on.
