Instant blocking of each string in the nut by manual control without tools and without affecting the accuracy of laccord you just pull a lever, it is also adjustable in height.
Vibrato trs trs flexible and efficient on Mount knife, handle the patented vibrato, trs system may also block the bridge to play without vibrato.

This was my deuxime guitar, I bought lai in 1986 for $ 5900F, I can Sparer men by nostalgia, or modify it either, even if it sounds blah! For full guitar sound much better else, but I always take a walk on his terrible round fantastic.
Split stratocaster contenporary III, made in Japan
. Bridge fender Contenporary III, of excellent workmanship, high precision, a bit of hassle to get the strings at first, but it is a blow to take. "I have never met vibrato as reliable and accurate.
Maple neck and mahogany touches, 22 frets. Blocking original strings and very convenient, unfortunately broken by a luthier in a refrètage and since replaced by a locking screw satandard ...
Tris microphones, including a first position Humber. 5 way switch. Volume adjustment, tone adjustment. Dipose volume adjustment according to a "boost". A phase reverse switch (?) For the humbucker.
Channel super nice, no problems with handling and playing, the bridge that helps to adjust the strings with extreme accuracy is also much.
The guitar is a bit heavy, and after a concert of two hours or more, you can feel good about the "shoulder! O) But it is also a guarantee of good sound.
Fender Start sounds are easily obtained even without effects pedals.
Excellent sound, characteristic of Stratocasters, very versatile, sounds cleans the distorted sounds (with a pedal for example).
The sounds I use most are the clean sounds in the third microphone (5th position, micro stick only), or the 2nd position (microphones 1 + 2), recalling the sound Knopffler, position a rack with one of First Boss ME5, ME50 and then finally being given GT10 sounds really hell!
I play a sound in rnregistrements or Yamaha 100W amp and 50 Harke.
I use it for 25 years, it has not aged so to speak.
I tried several models of strat cheaper at the time of purchase, but the lightning was real for this contemporary III. The sleeves gibson I have never packed ...
I also have a Godin Freeway electric lighter and perhaps more comfortable for a long concert, but the quality sounds, even very good, does not equal that of the fender. The only guiatre I have and that competition is a multiac godin nylon, sounding not possible with a steel string guiater.
J'pprècie especially the bridge, a design very original, extremely reliable, regardless of excess handling of the vibrato.
I deplore the great difficulty of obtaining parts.
At the time of purchase, the price of CHF 10 000 was a short, but I do not regret this purchase and I would do without any problems.
