    Fender Stratacoustic [2000-2005]Published on 02/02/04 at 15:00
    I got this Fender off of Guitar Crazy's website. I got it for a good price of 82 dollars new. They have a overstock there. If you want a guitar make sure you go there.

    It is very slick and light. You can go anywhere with this guitar. I play it in the top of my 75 foot tree.

    The wind carries it when i am that high on time it dropped and shattered i had to get a new one.

    very Nice and light

    It is a very breakable guitar

    I am retarded

    Stratacoustic, paid $449 Canadian minus a trade-in. Owned and tested for one year through various amps.
    RESULTS; Very lively pick-ups and much louder than my other guitars. Excellent range of tones thanks to the on board equalizer. The neck is wonderfully thin and playable with a neck finish that is tastefully flat ( not shiny ). The body is so light and trim it invites picking up, I have one guitar that is beautiful but so heavy I walk past it and grab the Stratacoustic every time for a quick practice. The quality is excellent in every respect. I would recommend this guitar to anyone and have no intention of parting with mine even though I go through a lot of guitars.

    i bought my stratacoustic at music123.com at a very good price of $234.00, i bought the guitar just to have a nice acoustic/electric to have and play!

    The stratacoustic has a very well rounded tone un-plugged, and an even better sound plugged in (if you know how to get a decient mix) it really lived up to my expectations on quality, durability, sound, and definently l@@ks! So far it has been an ecxeptionaly good guitar. i also like the plastic ovation style back, i think it really helps the tone and it just looks cool too. very good guitar! recomended

    the only complaints so far are..... the strings were a little farther from the neck than i had hoped therefore; harder to push down, and after playing for a while with friends or even playing sets or gigs it really takes a toal on your fingers! and also i know it might mess up the smooth look but i wish it came with a pickguard. But on this guitar the goods definently out-weigh the evils!!

    i thought this guitar was very durable, from the moment that i took it out of the packing i could tell that this is a very durable guitar, it could definently take just sitting in my home, playing a gig, or even road abuse. This guitar is an all around good instrument, from the breath taking looks, to the wonderful tone (unplugged and plugged), all the way to the wonderful quality this is a great guitar!!

    This is a wonderful guitar, one of my favs. this guitar does it all plays well, looks awesome, and is very very durable! I definently would and have reccomended this guitar to you!

    Bought this little sweetie online for $250 shipped to my door! ... zzounds.com

    An absolute blast to play. Everyone who walks into the shop goes over, picks it up and starts playing. Decent set up right out of the box. Plugged into my Danelectro eStudio belt amp, I can rock out anywhere, anytime.

    One of the most fun guitars I've ever owned.

    Well, you get what you pay for... I replaced the cheapo, plastic saddle and nut with TusQ versions. Also took off the astonshingly bad strings that came with it and put on some phosphor bronze lights... the sound REALLY improved.

    Overbuilt if anything... I carved the two wings of the massive X brace that I could get to through the sound hole. After taking them down to an acceptable arch, the sound greatly improved.

    Right out of the box, this is a sweetie... fun to play, very portable, huggable with an OK-to-Decent sound.

    Replace the crappy strings, nut and saddle... carve down the braces a bit and you will be delighted... Lots of Bang for the Buck.

    Fender Stratacoustic [2000-2005]Published on 02/01/02 at 15:00
    We were excited to see the ads for the Stratacoustic and Telacoustic. I was looking for a light easy to play acoustic for my Wife and these guitars appeared to be the answer to our dream. I preordered the Stratacoustic from Victor Litz Music before they even had them in stock and waited in anticipation for it's arrival. I believe We paid 325.00 dollars.

    The guitar finally arrived it was light, compact and attractive. It looked just like the pictures.

    unfortunately that is where Our expectations came to an abrupt hault. The molded body was not smooth and "Ovation-like" it had sharp bumps that may have been to keep it from sliding around but scracthed your bare arms. But what about the Tone…

    unfortunately that is where Our expectations came to an abrupt hault. The molded body was not smooth and "Ovation-like" it had sharp bumps that may have been to keep it from sliding around but scracthed your bare arms. But what about the Tone?
    I know I am spoiled by my Martin D1R but their really was no tone or warmth and plugged it this was only louder and made the lack of wood more apparent.

    The "electric" style neck that promised easy action had more in common with a long bow than a guitar. They must have been Squier rejects. Examination of the interior of the body revealed glue had been slopped everywhere. There was even some on the outside of the guitar We had to clean off.
    We ran to the local music store and traded it in on a used Acoustic Electric Guild that is everything the Stratacoustic is not.

    Unless the manufacturing of the Stratacoustic has undergone a major revision
    I cannot think of a guitar worse than this one. Avoid it at all cost. My old cheapy Korean Fender flatop blows it away in every aspect and in fact so does my wifes old Global. I am a fan of Fender and Guild products but the Stratacoustic drags the Fender name through the mud.

    Chinese-made
    21 frets
    prampli license fishman

    UTILIZATION

    The action is a bit high (price requires !!!), however once the bridge properly lim to lower the ropes round the trs is familiar to fans of fender.
    ergonomics is good trs (weight - balance)
    the sound is "rtrci" in Acoustic, crate rsine requires small volume, but once the sound is excellent branch ... for the price and in absolute terms.
    It would be difficult, if not particulirement apprcier the fabulous quality price ratio.

    SOUNDS

    I use it with a tube preamp ART SGX and its clear the sound is excellent.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 months and I'm not a prs to change!

    you must remove the handle (behind the four screws) and slide it between the support and fund a few thin strips of wood (I think the card stock must also agree) to the desired height. and, voila, ca becomes a guitar from hell, uh fender.
    Then just put the strings lights (not too large if the handle does not like, it bends easily) and we find the great ergonomics of the stratocaster (for those who love).
    In addition, I move quite often, I lugs around in a bag style backpack, it is super lightweight and compact. and compared to a scratching electric means what we play

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two months ... I like his style, his sound, his ct practice and its price low enough for even the fender qd
    This is the guitar I was looking for scne, I let go I do!
    It is clear that I will take the same because it is really particulire ... Recommended for rhythm guitar, because it fresh and makes a good rpond trs good sound
    For trying to bcp electro-ac. is that which in any case best fits me because it does not tire ... Of course, I speak in relation to price because there must be much better! For 385euros is a bargain!

    UTILIZATION

    The neck seems to me that the biggest lightweight in the stratum and to know that the tyrant of the original string is 12/52 which is not bad for slamming the cot. Perfect mix between acoustic and electric.
    CHAC is trs fine but be aware that the feel we are closer to the acoustics as good strat electric. The body is a good dj in depth and it's very light weight, well equilibrated so very pleasant to play standing. I test an amp accoustiq CARLSBRO (adjustable flat) and is your exact bleuffant! This is really excellent, I tried a marshall lamp and it was okay and then it's funny to see that even when a sound not too bad with a slight crunch, I tried also a peavey bass amp and Moyer is to have a beautiful sound trs. The best thing to not dpenser bcp money is to go live on the table (with a minimum of quality in their stuff) s we approach the amp for acoustic and honestly compare with a godin not at all in the same budget is not hsiter!

    SOUNDS

    Its level: the fishman is excellent and allows an adjustable end trs is bleuffant!!

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price there is no picture and no hsiter, the only question I ask myself is: this time is a skyscraper that will age well? I have also a Mexican Start for 4 years and it does not move so it plutt good sign.

The sound is equilibrated diffcile because the bass is poorly trs RETURNED even with a good amp derrire. So trsdu pramp of which is dependent on the violin, no doubt. In short it's pretty cold and even dcevant for this award.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had bought for his ct practice scratching for extra RPTES or small concerts and finally I have given a friend in exchange diffrent odds and ends. Outside the Aesthetics pluttrussi does not ring and therefore a lot of guitar runs with changes more or less happy to try to lower the action.
