I got this guitar as an early birthday present because I couldn't wait until July. I purchaced it off of Musicansfriend.com for 459 dollars. It had free shipping.
I love both the Atomic humbucker and the Tex-mex single coil. The problem I had with my other guitar is the clean channel sounded distorted. The cyclone sounds perfect. It also stays in tune very well, if I bend or crank on the wammy. Both pick ups pump out smooth tunes and the humbucker can really growl! And the off-set body looks cool, and feels great. Lastly, the pearloid pickguard looks a lot better than just a regular white.
The only thing I didn't like is that one of the tremolo springs came loose. That nothing a philips head screw driver can't fix.
It is made of solid poplar wood, so it it is heavy. The benifit of that is that it is a very durable guitar. The Cyclone is built like a tank. I've bumpped it against my computer desk about three times, and no dings or scratches on the head. The strap buttons are completly secure. The input jack is also very tight. No problems here.
I love this guitar. It is one of the "exotic" Fender's rather than a Strat or Tele. Good price for a great guitar. If someone stole it, I would hunt them down and kill them, then take my guitar back. (Just kidding)
I aquired this Guitar after I got out of the hospital after a months stay results of getting hit by a truck, any way my uncle showed up whenI got home with the Cyclone because he knew it was the model I liked.
Great Feel to the Guitar 1 Texmex Single Coil in Neck sounds nice and deep for blues, and a Hummy for you rock fans. Also the Offset waist gives it a great alternative look.
Don't stick with the 9's fender gives you get the guitar fitted for Guage 10 strings.
Great Quality no Complaints Its a Genuine Fender Mexican what more can I say?
Body and neck made in the USA, assembled in Mexico
Vintage Stratocaster bridge and mechanical
Maple neck kind Jazzmaster, rosewood fingerboard 22 frets, tuning 24.75 as the Gibson Les Paul
Poplar dense body types mustang thicker
Tex-Mex single-coil neck and side atomic Humbucker bridge, three-position selector switch, volume and tone control
The handle is very nice, probably close to a Jazzmaster, ergo is top and the weight is rather light, easy access to acute ...
The sound that emerges from this guitar has character, it is consistent, balanced warm and enveloping, it is addictive and gives an insatiable hunger ears (I probably came across a piece of choice) ...
I think an electric guitar unplugged test without amp, so she reveals the quality of his violin and sounds that follows, on this point, this cyclone is better than some American Strat, however the Southwestern series mounted microphones are not really up to (but not bad so far)
I use it for 2 years and sound side is a treat, multipurpose; jazz, blues, pop-rock grunge, noise and hard, maybe not metal, flamenco, bosa nova and other styles apart from the aforementioned sphere must not ask too much, but it's like a strat or Jazzmaster, we can do many things.
Quality / price is upscale Mexican, among the best no doubt, it was worth 800 euros 98 (year of my series) and 720 in 00 years, it's honest, but the Leo logo costing tjs too expensive ...
Attention my opinion is subjective (I think he fell on a good machine of this series I like bcp), so make up your own mind by testing it, it's like loudspeakers, avoid buying without the cochlea have been asked

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Channel and Body fabriqus the USA, assembled in Mexico
22 frets, one single micro Fender Tex Mex handle and 1 double Fender Atomic Humbucker bridge
Slecteur 3 positions, 1 volume, 1 tonalitbr /> Manche short scale of 24.75 "(Fender Mustang sleeve or Jaguar) rather rounded head style 70 '
Channel pleasant, lightweight rounded, I prefer to have Ibanez highways
The access to agu is comparable Strat
Voil the strong point of this guitar: ergonomics. Body shape elongated hyper pleasant and weight is very content (in short it's not a Gibson)
Of rglages can therefore sounds right away
1 small default but can be exploited, the dual output level is 2 times that of the simple Superior
My prefers position: center position, bottom volume, tonality between 50 and 70%
To play rock that's perfect for me but we play any style with any guitar
This is the form that indicates the style in any case it's the guitar I rvais for several years, therefore, can not be as excellent
Fender, so crystal clear sound in the neck position and the double rock is desired. But I think the top is the central position
I use it for the month of April 2003
What I especially like about this guitar is the look: Gnrale shape and chrome plate the Jazz Bass
But the sound is no exception and the simplicity of the config me emballbr /> The report qualitprix is excellent, I learned that this model is like many Fender lower level rates from falls
I bought it 800 and should be closer to 700 today
1 major default: finish (eg I have a problem at the jack and yet I am not a nag, ...)
I think I would choose this model but I think by watching against a little more prs Mustang repetition manufactures in Japan
