Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster FMT Tobaco Color Sunburst.
Everything has been said about the characteristics detailed below.

I was surprised by the quality of the finish superbly treated. Much more beautiful than the picture.

The adjustment of the strings is made Fender standard a little high for my taste. After replacing the strings with larger and a stint at a luthier to fit my requirements, it is a pleasure to play on this guitar.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice and fast, it adapts well to my hand. With the Push Push 'S1' installed on the volume and the volume pot switch 5 position, it has 9 different tones. Difficult not to have the sound we are looking for.

Access to acute is suitable. The guitar is very well balanced and a correct weight. Set correctly, this guitar is not tiring even after 3 hours and Jam is a pleasure to play it.

Edit of 26/07/2009: The switch S1 is out of his home just after ten use, and to date I expect my Fender replaced under warranty. Two months of waiting and no recovery despite several new ... The delay comes instead of "musicstore.de" where I bought it. Big disappointment on their "customer service".

SOUNDS

I had this guitar before the finish but even normal (Fender Strato Am. Deluxe HSS). By buying this one I thought I would stay in the same quality of sound: and far away, we move to a level much higher in my opinion. Better sustain, a more rounded and warmer await you. I think the quality of wood is different is that for many (maple top and ebony fingerboard for this one)

Amp I use as a "Fender Blues Junior" with a few pedals (Ibanez TS808, Boss CH1 ...) and a Fender Deluxe VM. I play Rock, pop and blues (Clapton, AC / DC, Queen, Pink Floyd, Shocking Blue ....) and this guitar fits wonderfully well with these sounds.

Edit of 26/07/2009: After several months of use, I still can not get used to the volume knob, you can not make a quick adjustment of specific volume during the games, it passes rapidly from one volume very high OFF GRRrrrrrr ... Fender would place a pot of more progressive.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had two months. Very good guitar that I advise all those who play rock-blues.

The price is right for a guitar of this quality if based on current prices of guitars.

I also have a PRS and a "Gibson Les Paul Pro SC. Since I got this guitar, I no longer use it and it gives me all the sounds I need, and robust appearance inspires confidence to carry around everywhere without fear especially that it comes with a very nice "box" vintage ;-).

I would do this choice without hesitation eyes closed.
