A very good example of what a classic Strat should be
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
Classic Strat tones, very stable tuning, and was setup very good right out of the box. The only thing I want is for Fender to start making the bridge pickup a touch hotter for better balance, especially for clean tones.

So much fun.
What is your opinion of this product?
Beautiful guitar. An absolute blast to play. It came almost perfectly set up, which is better than I can say for almost any guitar I’ve ever purchased. My only complaint is that it’s a gift for my wife and not technically mine. I would buy another though.

Excellent quality
What is your opinion of this product?
I had a mid 90's American Strat and thought I would never learn to love again! I was wrong, this Strat is plays nice, sound good, and a very high quality build!

Good Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I have a few Strats and every one is different in sound and playing. This guitar has a nice feel, nice tone and a nice look. I read the reviews and I am not sure why someone would purchase a guitar they felt was going to be trouble. Most players I know do all of this stuff to guitars prior to playing them. I get them and play them right out of the box. Anyway, as usual, the folks at AMS are the best

Great value for an American made instrument
What is your opinion of this product?
Overall love the guitar. Texas Specials are a little too bright for my tastes when overdriven, but rolling off the tone fixes that right up. Guitar plays nice and the neck is very smooth. Love the 70's headstock. Honestly, that was the main reason I got this :)

Great guitar , better price
What is your opinion of this product?
Best bang for the buck on an American Stratocaster. The Texas Special pickups sound great , fit and finish was superb. Sounds great thru my Marshall . I get that gritty country rock sound . Neck and frets were nice and clean .

Excellent guitar for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a great guitar. The Texas Special pickups are loud and mouthy with the perfect Strat-like bite. I got mine in surf green and it's beautiful. A great looker and player.

Well, it's a Strat
What is your opinion of this product?
So here's the thing... there's nothing wrong with this guitar that hasn't always been wrong with Strats. If you're used to having to get the neck adjusted, nut replaced, and coming up with a tuning solution if you dare use the tremolo - then this is a fine example of a Fender Stratocaster. The finish is excellent. The fit is a mess. There are gaps in the neck socket I can fit a .73mm pick into. The nut had to be replaced because it was cut poorly. The neck needed to be adjusted. For good measure I also replaced the pickguard and bridge pickup - because I was going to do those things at some point anyway. This is an American made guitar. It's supposed to be better than this. There's a reason there are so many replacement parts for Stratocasters... you need them.
