Best Strat I’ve Tried!
Product Rating

Product Review

I can’t resist when I saw the color and as a bonus it has a 70’s headstock and matching color with the body. The pearl finish is amazing, a lot better than what you see in the picture. The neck feels great, I have to lower the string height a little bit and plays like a dream. I’m more of a PRS/Gibson style nut This guitar really blows me away. Can’t put it down once I started playing. Just wish it came with a hard case or a deluxe gig bag.

Ease of playability with classic Fender sound

Product Review

From the classic paint with matching headstock, this Stratocaster has the look, sound and ease of playability of the early 1950s models. Everything you need for the classic Fender sound and look is found in this model. You gotta have at least one!

Inspires me

Product Review

I love this guitar. Always wanted an American made strat and wanted the texas special pickups. This model made that possible. Plays amazing, feels amazing, looks amazing. Only complaint would be that it has a 6 point trem, would prefer a 2 point, but that's a minor issue.

A Strat for all tones

Product Review

Finally broke down and got a real strat. I always wanted one, it I always seemed to be stuck in humbucker land when I got a new axe. Forced myself to get this sss model. I am so glad I did. Great neck, easy to play, and the Texas Special pickups are hot without getting shrill. I love it!

Great guitar...

Product Review

My guitar is beautiful, plays well and I like it a lot. The only thing I found wrong with it is either a scratch in the paint or a crack in the body. I can't tell which.The bright color hides it in real lighted places. I sent an email with a picture and haven't received a reply yet.
