Fender is probably the biggest music company in the world when it comes to amp and guitars. When it comes to a Fender STrat it can be one of the most if not most recognized guitar in the world. They have been played all over the world from beginner learning guitar players to the best professionals in the world. 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. Even to this day many builders have used this instrument as inspiration to build their own custom creations.

SOUNDS

The only thing that I wish they would have done with this guitar is to keep the glaze off of the instrument. I think they should just have it bare oiled neck and body so that it gets reliced naturally and keeps the stories on the condition of the guitar. So please remove the lacquer from this guitar and you have a cool guitar. This guitars features three pickups cascading up the body and a selector switch. The three pickup option is basically standard on all Fender Strats. Not too much as far as features go but this guitar is a player's dream. If you like the natural wood look on guitars and don't care where the production was made then this is a great guitar for you. I like the natural look but I would prefer a custom shop build and an oiled body like a Washburn N4. It will collect dirt and oil from your hands and naturally relic after a few months of playing time.

OVERALL OPINION

I am not a fan of Mexican made products. Japan made is great since the Fender builder over there have to go to luthier school. So this guitar is going to feel a little cheaper made than an American made one will feel like. However, this guitar is going to be a few hundred dollars less than an American made one..I would recommend this guitar to anyone who doesn't want to spend $1100 on an American fender Deluxe guitar. At new these guitars come in at a round $750. This is a bad price but you will need to replace the pickup because they are terrible.
