General What is your overall opinion of this product? The guitar plays and feels great. The only issue I have is when my fingers touch the pick guard it makes a static crackle popping noise. As long as I do not touch the pick guard it is quiet. I have several USA Strat/Tele and Gibson Les Pauls and this is a first. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Very flexible for rock, classic rock, jazz/blues Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I am usually a C shape neck/ slim 60's neck but this Soft V neck feels comfortable and amazing Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Well it nails Clapton tones,great for SRV and Gilmour and most any music played with a strat. The boost is great for pushing the clean channel to break up. Still getting use to the tbx control. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Overall the guitar is perfect in fit/finish and feel. No flaws. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Compared to other starts and considering this is an artist model the price was fair. Playability How was the action out of the box? Action was a hair low for me but didn't take long to get use to. Felt a little different bending the high E and B string
i love it

Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? the quality is great neck real smooth feel, great tones, I played blues rock &some country through her she made them all sound good. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? this guitar a little heavy but they are a lot heavier guitars out there. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? had great blues, rock & country tones Finish How did the stain or paint job look?

How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? yes but fender needs make sure guitars set up right from factory, I understand sitting in warehouse, in transit can make things get off a little but not that much took it to local set up guy now she plays like a champ Playability How was the action out of the box? needed set up bad but the stevie ray strat I bought was worse off than this 1 shame on fender

General Your general opinion of this product. Fantastic! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You can get the bright tele tone to the almost LP thick tone without pedals ,just a twist of the controls on the guitar! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I have owned the Black and the pewter ,Like both , but Personally Ilike the black the best!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar is all Fender....only top quality. A true custom shop feel from a production model! General Your general opinion of this product. Right out of the box I knew it was a winner....neck is great for smaller hands and the sounds coming out of this thing are unbelievable!! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone varies from clean and bluesy to solid crunch rock with just the 25db boost. Great response and easy to figure out if you know a little about guitars. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Fantastic Pewter finish...Beautiful!!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? the quality is american standard usa guittars. General Your general opinion of this product. i would not recomend this guitar to a beginer. there is just way to much to figure out and learn, but would recomend it for any one who has been playing guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? i think you can get any tone out of this baby, but you have to work for it. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? i got the olympic white so its really hard to go wrong with that color, i dont love the pick gaurd color, also has a little bit of space between the pick gaurd and the guitar i guess they might have screwed it on to tight.
