What can I say about the Fender Stratocaster this and not been said already. It is a standard and classic look that many builders over the time has found influence in their own guitar constructions. There's been so many variants of this guitar. There's been a plethora of builders take influence from this guitar and have compounded on it and actually made it somewhat better in certain circumstances with better exotic woods and features. However, this is a classic look at classic guitar that stands the test of time.

The tone of these guitars is fantastic. if you ever spent time with a Fender Stratocaster then you know exactly what I mean. Has a great warm bluesy tone that cleans up very well and is exceptional guitar for rock 'n roll music. This guitar sounds great and pretty much any genre of music imaginable. I will particularly like the sound of the Fender Stratocaster in the neck pick up. You getting good bluesy tone that doesn't distort very well but has a full bodied almost punching town.

Is guitar sound exceptional with a Fender amp as you would imagine because the guitars and amps are voiced with each other. So if you have a Fender amp of some sort in a nice overdrive pedal than you can get a crate solid sounding rock 'n roll pop blues, country tone. This guitar can go a long way with the Fender amp. Or you can even put it in a hiking amplifier setting and get a great rock 'n roll heavy hard rock tunnel. Guitar will not do a drop tuning very well , but something that isn't a standard tuning or even maybe a drop half step tuning will work with this guitar.


I highly recommend this guitar and any guitar player out there. It is a staple in rock 'n roll music and it's really a staple in music all together. At new you can find these guitars right around $1200 which is a steal of a price for this guitar. I recommend every single guitar player to own at least one fender Stratocaster in their life time with her career. It's a classic Atari classic look and it will add to your dimension is a guitar player.
