These guitars have been played by almost every guitar player in the word at one time or another. They have a mystique and allure to them that is almost hypnotizing. Thousands of artists and players have featured these guitars 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. many tourist and professional artists turned up for this festival to pay tribute to Leo and company for their fantastic creation. So to say that these guitars has left an impression on the musical world would be an understatement. This is a guitar that drips with soul and promise of making a better musician out of you.

This instrument has a feel and tone that can only be a Fender Stratocaster. This is an extremely versatile guitar with the 5 way selector and three single coil operation with the tone control knobs as well. Any old amp will do with this guitar. The soul form this guitar is simply just captivating and alluring. This fine Fender guitar is so silky and smooth that is makes you amp sing like it was meant to be together. This instrument will blend and create a mix or soul with you like no other guitar can and probably ever will. There is a reason why these guitars have been copied the world over. There is a reason why so many people attempt to build and recreate their own version of these guitars.


These guitars have now been discontinued. You can still find them pretty easily on the used market and even some stores still have some new old stock on hand. These are cool guitars and a player's guitar for sure. They have a touch and rugged feel to them that makes them a perfect gigging guitar. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone searching for one of the best guitars that has ever been created.
