The Fender Stratocaster is easily the most recognized guitar and one for the most versatile guitars in the world. One of the single greatest accomplishments in musical history. These guitars have been played by almost every guitar player in the word at one time or another. They have been feature on countless recordings and touring from every stage under the sun. They even have a tribute festival dedicated to the guitar it self for its 50th anniversary. So to say that these guitars has left an impression on the musical world would be an understatement.

This color option on this guitar is just a stellar masterpiece. It looks almost like a frost metallic gray color. Very unique and very excellent. I like this color combination with the maple fretboard very much. It just has this appeal that draws my eyes right into it.

These guitars sound amazing in any format you put them in. They are an essential element of music and will be until judgment day. When it comes to the sound of a Strat there really is no other. Many other builders make good guitars but none as classic as this guitar. I hear guys talk about finding a Strat sounding guitar and look to Suhr and Anderson and completely bypass the sound that started it all. The sound is everyone from Jimmy to John Mayor and in between. You have more control of the fret board and the upper frets. The fret board seems a little more flat on top compared to a PRS guitar or a Suhr. The feel of the neck is just what makes this guitar shine its light.


At new you can pick one of these guitars up for right around $1099, which isn't bad for an American rock legend. You can find them on the used market for right around $650. So even the used ones hold there value pretty well. So many tonal possibilities that will accompany anything musical genre from pop to modern rock. I would recommend this guitar to any guitar player. Everyone needs a Fender Strat in their arsenal. A great everyday guitar and a players dream.
