« Dr. Feelgood!!! »

This is one American classic guitar. These guitars are some the best Fender Stratocasters that has come out of Southern California in a while. The feel and tone of these guitars simply go back to the days when they were more a custom single piece guitars then what they have grown into today.

This is basically the same guitar Mick Mars from Motley Crue uses on his touring stage. His of course has a Floyd Rose bridge so he can pull of those insane whammy squeals. However, the color scheme and everything looks about the same. I am a fan of Mick so I immediately recognized this guitar.

SOUNDS

I personally love the way this guitar brings back the simplicity of the electric guitar. Not a bunch of options on this guitar, but just the simple way the Leo intended it to be. These guitars will go well with any amp you play them in. I love the way the fat Strat sits with a good Marshall style amp or even a Fender Bassman. I dig the tone the the voicing of those amps and they are a perfect match to this guitar. Whatever you style of music may be this guitar can easily fit into your playing style. Even though it has single coil pickups in it you get still get a great beefy tone with the right amp or distortion pedal at your feet.



OVERALL OPINION

At new I have seen these guitars go for around $870. That is about the right price for an American made fender. There are a lot of bells and whistles on this guitar but just a simple volume and a couple tone knobs to go along with a pickup selector.
