Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar is absolute garbage. I now see why it was only $200 with an instant rebate. Fender is one of the most highly reputable guitar makers of all time, but this guitar is a complete and utter bust. I've owned this guitar for two weeks now, changed the strings, and adjusted the truss rod and am still unable to keep the strings in tune. Switching from chord to chord, the strings do not stay in pitch, and I am unable to go through chord progressions without having to stop after every chord and re-tune the strings. The actions is terrible: the strings lay 1/2 an inch off the fretboard and tore into my fingers, and I now have calouses. The tone of the guitar sounded muted and very one dimensional. I'm convinced this guitar was designed by Fender for purely aesthetical reasons such as being displayed in magazines or tv commericals as opposed to being a genuine instrument that is playable. DO NOT BUY THIS GUITAR UNLESS YOU WANT SOMETHING PRETTY TO HANG ON YOUR WALL.
