« One sexy Strat »

Publié le 08/01/11 à 20:45
First off this is one of my favorite looking Strats that Fender has come out with. I might be partial to this guitar because one of my best buddies owns this very guitar. So I have spend a lot of time with it. Other than my first STrat I have ever bought this one is my favorite piece that I have ever played.

This is the Sienna color sunburst on this guitar. It is a transparent color that you can actually see the wood grain through the paint. This is a very cool and artistic treatment to this guitar. There will be an up charge for this paint job so you have to like the color otherwise it is not worth the extra cost.

SOUNDS

Every Fender Stratocaster I have ever played needed the pickups replaced. So for every Fender Strat out there you are going to have to replace the pickups. It amazes me that someone like Fender who have build some of the world best guitars and amps completely and utterly fail at making pickups. Its not only Fender but Gibson pickups suck as well. Their pickups have to be the most horrible garbage sounding pickups in the world. I'm sure that someone out there has topped them but their pickups are just trash.

Any old amp will do with this guitar. I like all Strats with a good old Fender amp. I also play them with a Marshall amp but this one in particular I have played with a PEavey CLassic 50. OK amp not for me but the guitar shines through that amp though. This guitar will also work for any style of music except most of the drop tuning stuff. You won't be able to get a deep thick fat metal tone from this guitar. Any of you are into that kind of music you already know that. Other than that it will suit most players just fine.

OVERALL OPINION

AT new you can find these amps for right at around $1150, that is a bit of an up charge for this sunburst sienna color. a little bit more time involved getting this thing to look this way so there is an extra charge. Well worth it if you dig this color combination with the maple fretboard.
