    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.

    Worth every penny
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Ordered on a Wednesday, arrived on Thursday afternoon. ( arrival time depends on how close you are to a warehouse ) Like the other review stated. It looks , sounds and plays beautiful . Just had to lower the action a bit for my personal playing preference but I promise you wont be disappointed . One of the nicest Strats out there for a reasonable price.

    USA Special Strat
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great guitar! I won't go into detail about this USA Special Strat I just received, because other reviewers have already done so. I will say that I ordered the surf green, it arrived yesterday, I have put 5 hours of playing time on this guitar already since then, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I like this guitar for the value so much that I will order a candy-apple red version of it soon.
