« Nice and beefy! »Publié le 04/14/11 à 13:15
My very first guitar was Fender Strat but with the standard three single coil operation. I have always wanted Fender Deluxe American made but it seems those are a little too hard to find. And forget about getting one with a Floyd Rose Tremelo in it unless you live in Japan. Fender if you are listening, bring us some American made 2 humbucker Strats over here please. Until that time then I'll just get a Charvel Custom or two.
* 2010 FSR Std Strat MN MET 3TSB
* Alder body
* Maple, modern "C" Shape neck, (Tinted Satin Urethane Finish)
* Maple fingerboard,9.5" Radius (241 mm)
* 21 medium Jumbo frets
* 2 Humbuckers
* 1 Volume, 2 Tones
* 5 Position Switch
* Vintage Style Synchronized Tremolo bridge
* Fender/Ping Standard Cast/Sealed Tuning Machines
* Chrome hardware
* 3-Ply Black Pickguard
* 25.5" (648 mm) scale length neck
* 1.650" (42 mm) width at nut
* Vintage Styling
* Black Plastic Parts
* Standard Gig Bag included
My two favorite wood combos are the Alder with Maple and the Alder with Maple and Ebony fret board. This fortunately has the first which is the best wood combination out there. I understand the need and desire for exotic woods and the allure for how beautiful they are, but when it just to straight players guitars needing to rock then there really isn't anything more simple and better than an Alder body and a Maple neck....perhaps a one piece alder body.
The tone from this guitar is very good. It can get beefy with the humbuckers and lighten it up for some single coil action. This is an extremely versatile guitar with the 5 way selector and humbucking and single coil operation.
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 about half the price too.
I would recommend this guitar to anyone who doesn't want to spend $1200 on an American fender Deluxe guitar. At new these guitars come in at a round $500. not a bad price for a starter guitar.
