This is a very well-built guitar right here in America that has a great tone great feel and overall great versatility. The Fender Stratocaster is a simple guitar but yet a guitar that has given so much influence for a guitarist and musicians for decades. It has the right perfect balance of tone simplicity and versatility that makes him one of the finest instruments in all of music history. These guitars when they first for introduced had such a great feeling a great tone and worry good addition to the Fender Telecaster at the time. These guitars come with three single coil pickups, a volume control knob, and two tone control knobs and a 5 way pick up selector. There's not a whole lot of extra electronics and switches in different push pull knobs or controls. She's very simple and very basic which gets you pretty much the best tone possible.

These guitar sounds fantastic anyw where you put them in in, such as a clean setting medium setting or higher gain amplifier setting. They have such a great feel and a great tone and are extremely versatile from genre to genre of music. I primarily like the tone of the Fender Stratocaster with a nice high again amplifier such as a Marshall JMP amplifier. They will sound good no matter how you run them or if you have a multiple effects processors or rack units or a giant pedal board going into an amp. These guitars will give you exactly what you give it and the dynamics are fantastic.


These guitars are very easily found in the used classifieds online anywhere such as eBay or other classifieds on guitar forms and even most online retailers or music shops will carry these guitars. Sometimes they vary from neck to neck so I suggest trying out a few to find out which style that you prefer. They also come in arrangement of different pick ups and colors so there is a lot of options to choose from. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone is looking for a great versatile instrument to record or play gigs with.
