I don't know how many musicians have said they have headstock envy. The matching headstock makes the whole guitar pop. Plays good, sounds great.Good buy.

awesome out of the box.
What is your opinion of this product?
I have 36 guitars, mostly Gibson , Epiphone and 3 american made fenders. The finish on this gautar is flawless. It plays as well as any guitar I own. Mine is the aztec Gold. It looks so much better in real life . The pictures don't do it justice. Should cost a lot more in my opinion.

Amazing strat for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
This is one of the best playing strats I’ve ever owned. The jumbo frets took a while to get used to, but I prefer them now. I got this model is Aztec gold, and man is it beautiful. The Texas specials are great pickups, and the satin finish on the neck feels unreal. The matching 70’s style headstock is just icing on the cake. I’m glad I grabbed one of these limited edition gold strats while I could. I’m going to have this guitar for a very long time.

Tough Customer likes it. Beautiful Finish. Decent pickups.
What is your opinion of this product?
Well, first off, it's beautiful. Yes, there's a LOT of things I might change (like 2 pole bridge, locking tuners, etc) but chatting about basics, it's a decent made stratocaster. The fret edge could be a bit more rounded my biggest beef (hardest for me to easily fix). The finish is awesome as is the headstock. The texas special pickups are actually quite good, and yes, string 5 has a volume slight drop, not my favorite but tolerable. Too bad the basic AM stratocaster doesn't come with a hard shell case, feel cheap but I have tons of hard shell cases so I guess that's OK.

I absolutely love my Golden strat.
What is your opinion of this product?
I opened up the box and began to play it and it's the 2nd one that I bought this year, interestingly enough it actually plays as good as the first one. I saw it the first time and I had to have it. I'm very happy with it happy with American Music Supply excellent service.
