Lives Up To The Legendary Name
What is your opinion of this product?
Finally, a strat worth every penny of its price. The finish. Fretts, Electronics are spot on. A true players dream. The tone of these pickups is authentic almost gritty. I have used it in Worship service and in a Cover band and it gets the job done. I have had tons of compliments from audiences and friends who say the look and the sound remind them of legendary guitars from Fenders past. In one word. "AWESOME".

Not as great as I hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
Matching surf pearl headstock looks cool. Unfortunately, the neck is uncomfortable (the necks on my Indonesia Squier Surf Strats are significantly more comfortable to play), and there was a minor wood flaw in the (natural) neck. (Granted, for guitars with painted or even stained necks, you would not notice this type of wood flaw.) For comparison, I also have an American Elite Surf Pearl Strat with matching surf pearl regular size headstock -- cost me $600 more (with saved up discounts) and was well worth it. Also have a '75 CBS era, 3-bolt Strat, and even with those issues, and it is a much better player. Maybe it all depends upon the neck shape you prefer. It looks nice, though.

Best Strat I’ve ever played!
What is your opinion of this product?
Pictures do not do the finish justice. Aztec Gold looks absolutely gorgeous in person. The C shape neck is incredibly comfortable to play on. Sound wise the Texas Special pickups are absolutely amazing. I haven’t been able to put his thing down since I got it.

Not as great abs I hoped cool look but not the vibe was expecting
What is your opinion of this product?
The guitar is nice vibe, but don’t be confused. This is not as nice, as American standard specials are almost Mexican grade with made in USA on them, I don’t believe these are corona-built.
