Fender is probably the biggest music company in the world when it comes to amp and guitars. The Fender Stratocatser is an American icon and an American classic guitar. Any guitar who has ever been playing the guitar longer than a few year most likely have picked up owned a Fender Stratocaster at some point. They have been played all over the world from beginner learning guitar players to the best professionals in the world. These guitars have been feature on countless stages and records for 50+ years. This is a nice guitar for those who need a comfortable neck and the look of it is just beauty. This is one of my favorite sunburst that Fender does on their guitars. It is just exquisite.

SOUNDS

I prefer to play a Marshall style amp with a Fender Straocaster. It sounds great as a nice blues guitar and gets those neck pickup tone with a great. These guitars have so much style and flare. I like to play blues with these guitars but that is just what naturally come out when I pick up one of these instruments. These guitars sound great with any amp you plug it into. This is one of those guitars that just sound great in any application with any effects or any distortion pedal. It is just an instrument that is begging to be played and played hard. This is a players guitar that needs to be beat on and driven to the edge.


OVERALL OPINION

At new these guitars come in right at around $999, which is a great price for this guitar. It has a great weight and feel on the neck. Like all Fender guitars the pickups need to be switched out as soon as you get it home. In fact don't even take it home order some pickups and just take it to you guitar tech for a pro setup and pickup switch. The tone is just awesome but I would recommend changing the pickups.
