One of Fenders Best Guitars
By: DMR GTR
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Interesting Strat in all the right ways..... I bought the 2-tone "brownie."
Unexpected light weight for starters. Special features which make this a real keeper.
12" radius neck with a tinted maple finger board that features a fair amount f flaming, staggered vintage tuners (no string tree required), nitro-cellulous paint lets the wood breath better and makes this guitar very acoustic (unplugged), unique designer custom pick-ups that are spot-on for a huge variety of tones and a really strange electrical set-up which works quite nicely, tone pots for the neck and bridge pups, but the middle pup is wide open (no tone pot). Really helps to redefine the #2 and #4 positions for additional sonic variety.
What else? Oh, gee, the case is almost worth the price alone, what a stunner, you have to see it to believe it (inside and outside). Includes a historic "ash tray cover." Neat!
Alright, this is basically a "custom shop" quality guitar & holds it's own with my Fender '52 RI Tele
