General What is your overall opinion of this product? The first one I received had a wood screw protruding through the control cavity which shorted out the pickup selector switch. I chose to deal with fender on this issue and they (after a ton of documentation) decided to replace it. The one they sent back had to be one of the ugliest and least quality instruments I've ever had the misfortune to hold in my hands. Uneven frets, wonky neck, dead spots in the neck, a stuck truss rod , and a case that wouldn't latch properly were among the issues I experienced with the replacement. If this guitar could speak (which you couldn't hear over the fret buzz anyway) it would say. "Kill meeee..." After taking the guitar to a local guitar tech he quoted $175.00 to get the guitar playable. This still doesn't address the issue of the maple veneer which might be the ugliest top I've ever seen. For real. It's awful. I'm dealing with fender as I write this review trying to get them to replace the instrument a second time

Your general opinion of this product. I gave up a vintage '63 Jazzmaster for this guitar. I have always played vintage guitars. I couldn't be happier with this Strat. I will never sell it. It is bound to be a classic someday. Once you get this guitar in your hands, you won't be able to put it down. I tried out a lot of guitars the day I bought this one. I knew immediately that this was the one that I had to have.

Your general opinion of this product. Excellent guitar. Looks amazing. Has the classic Strat sound, but to the next level. The inlaid fretboard is just one-of-a-kind. This is a top-quality Strat that will be a treasure for years to come.

Your general opinion of this product. Well built and probably the best look and finish of any Strat commercially available.
