- Fender design, assembly and assembly in Indonesia
Maple neck C
3 Duncan Designed pickups 5 position tone control on the 1st, 2nd and 4th position.
Needless to say, the famous guitar equally famous guitar squier model which refers to: the level of the visual, it is not in doubt, but the color of the microphones. The comparison stops there though.
Unless you fell ill, the quality of finishes is relatively blameless.
- The handle is very nice, fluid.
The weight is consistent with the average weight of a strat: it is relatively light.
We find the écranchure a strat: sitting position is very nice.
All seems fairly balanced. The grip is natural. We focus immediately on the games.
Access to treble does not looks good strats of all: if you have trouble it is not the fault of the guitar.
Sound: see below.
- Sound issue, we are dealing with a real stratocaster. Its typical crystalline Fender sound, reinforced by the body basswood and maple neck. Question setting we find the great possibility of configuration and customization strats.
It said that price, do not expect miracles! It is a good strat but without much orginalité .... That said for the price, it's worth every penny.
The bridge pickup is not such a masterpiece. His nasal, a bit garish.
The other 2 microphones and all other intermediate positions give him very correct. Their output volume is not very high, but this is not necessarily the goal! This is a vintage guitar, tube amp improved performance.
- Overall Opinion
- About 1 year of use. No complaints.
In comparison, I recently tried two Mexican and American:
-Level sound quality, the difference with the Mexican standard is not significant enough! (This is the quality of the amp will make the difference if applicable)
-It changes with more upscale Mexican, including deluxe player ... more accurate ...
-The difference is of course very significant when we move to the U.S., much more typical.
The value is excellent for this model to a great success.
Suitable for a beginner and Intermediate level, perfect for progress.
- - Made in Indonesia
- Bridge vintage type tremolo
- 21 medium jumbo frets
- 2 tones
- 1 volume
- 3 single coil pickups duncan designed
- Maple neck, maple fingerboard
- Basswood body (translation Indian cedar I think)
- The handle is very comfortable to play (key maple version anyway), a highway, a call to the expressiveness of the game that allows many nuances. The "gloss finish" is not tinted too sticky to the touch, pleasant sensations in games is its good backspin. I'm a fan of the handle "big heads" of the 70s strats so I love the logo squier revisited in the style of the time is nice too.
The weight is just right, not tried it on stage but I would say you can keep a set without getting backache. It is heavier than my highway but not as heavy as I had Japanese and weighed a dead donkey. Weight reassured me about the quality of the body as a purchasing squier I was afraid to find myself with a pen without vibration and without sustain. This "basswood" is very convincing!
Good overall balance.
Access to acute and classque a strat so good.
- It sounds straight strat in all the configurations although more oriented Blackmore, Gilmour or Hendrix or Knopfler tones that Hank Marvin and surf music. The appellation 70s strat is not innocent, because as squier did with the Classic Vibe was typed sensations models covered.
Clear strat very well slap and rich contours with Duncan Designed.
Distos argneuses well with the bridge pickup (very Blackmore period "Burn") and on the microphone handle, hot side of distos strat.
Intermediate positions of microphones allow clear more games in his jazzy, smooth, funky I like
- Overall Opinion
- I use it for 2 months.
I tried quite a few other strats (I play for 13 years) and it is very convincing. I prefer my 2006 Highway One and I would say that it is equivalent, except for the bridge, the Fender Japan that I possessed.
When I started playing guitar in 1999, we would have never expected such a model from squier, my first was a scratch Stagemaster and although it is not the same model, the overall quality was well below lutherie.
Little less is the metal used in the alloy tremolo is pretty bad.
I would do this choice for sure I was gone for a strat and did not have a big budget and I find myself, for that price, with a guitar that "fact"!
- Indonesian manufacturing quality honest. Good finishes. Maple neck 21 frets. Coprs in basswood (I think). Originally mlicros three Duncan Designed single coil in good order but before buying I had another project to upgrade with a SD Hot Rails bridge and a little to the handle 59
- Handle very nice (see the site for Squier profile). This guitar has had its baptism of fire last week and proved light, pleasant to play. For sounds see below
- With the change of microphones (see above) this guitar is a rock ptite bomb. I also opted for a slightly heavier strings (0.09-0.46) Combinations of 59 or Hotrails with simple micro central (original) provide access to sounds that make this guitar versatile. These pickups only open the doors to sounds more than single coils péchus of origin could not offrir.avec a HT Dual eBlackstar can explore sounds ranging from blues to rock / hard rock.
- Overall Opinion
- performed in concert there is a esemaine, this guitar surprised me by holding the agreement (for a small shift to ultra fine sandpaper in the grooves of the nut) and it sounds ls sends a efois micro chan ges (which tend to prove that the violin is the road). Eventually j ecrois as electronics (knobs etc.) would benefit from being replaced for better components. Apart from that an excellent base for lovers of upgrade
