Amazing Instrument, Amazing Quality
Product Rating

Product Review

This is the third Strat I've had. I've always struggled playing lead on one. I don't know if it's the radius or the neck, but this one plays like a dream. Strat-ish without the fight. I am used to Jackson and ESP and while this doesn't have a shred neck, it's still very comfortable for lead and rhythm playing. I'm not very good, but I can do what I do as easy on this as my other guitars. The S1 switch is subtle, but adds some nice sound options. Some people don't like the natural not all-black ebony fingerboards, but I think they are beautiful. AMS lets you choose which instrument you want from their stock so you get to see it before you get it. The quality of the guitar is top notch. On par with my USA PRS. It came set up to factory specs which was great, but I lowered the action a little more (1.25mm) and no buzz or fret out. This is by far one of the best guitars I've owned. Expensive for sure, but full of thoughtful features that make playing it a dream. Very happy!

The ultimate Stratocaster

Product Review

This is the best strat I have ever played hands down the compound radius fretboard and the new neck carve is silky smooth and very fast playing. This guitar has custom shop feel to it and the build quality is outstanding. Locking tuners make changing strings of breeze and a tremolo system in this one is smooth and this guitar stays in tune beautifully. The 4th gen noiseless pickups are everything fender claims they are there is tons of spank and quack and very detailed like a true single-coil pickup I have a b this against some of my other stratocasters with taxes specials in fat 50s and the 4th gen pickups are lacking nothing these are the best noiseless pickups I have ever heard . The fit and finish on this as I said before feels like a custom shop guitar I can't put it down.Democratic if you're on the fence about this guitar don't be get it I guarantee you this will be the Stratocaster you reach for first from now on these guitars are so good this is actually my second elite strat. I already owned a Autumn blaze elite Stratocaster with rosewood fretboard.but when I saw they came out with these beautiful ebony fretboards I went ahead and ordered the Olympic Pearl with the ebony fretboard this guitar is stunning beautiful finish. I own a lot of high-end guitars and I will tell you that this is the best playing one of them all this has quickly become my go-to . Worth every penny again thank you AMS for what is a problem because the buying experience in customer service you guys are second to none safe in this business and I recommend you in all the online forums I belong to. Well done fender and well done AMS

My new favorite guitar

Product Review

I have been playing for 30+ years and have owned several fender guitars. I also own a PRS, schecter hellraiser and a couple Ibanez guitars and for versatility and all around best sound for most songs we play, I grab this guitar. Action is perfect, super fast for those who like to sweep pick are shred. New pickups make a world of difference between songs when the equipment is hot. I am also loving the ebony fretboard! First guitar with ebony and I highly recommend it for a sharper attack.
