«  A good Strat optimize »

Published on 08/26/14 at 03:58
A strat, all that was more classic! Lightweight (3.5 kgs for mine), easy handle, easy access to acute ... In short, I refer you to other reviews for more information on the specifications.
This is one of the first Highway 1 (started in 2002 if I'm not mistaken series).
All paint and glaze that covers the body of the guitar is very light in terms of thickness which explained the democratic price of the instrument. However, use is another story and guitar finds unmistakably full SOFC and scratches rather quickly ... Too bad ... It is also unfortunate that Fender decided to make the body of the guitar 3 parts ... Even if the use is not noticed much, on paper, a 2-piece body is preferable to sustain and sound propagation.

UTILIZATION

The ergonomic shape of the Strat and its low weight make this instrument a tool of choice for the musician. The varnish of the handle is nice, as the key (rosewood for me), the frets are polished and properly handle C promotes gambling.
However, the guitar is not free from blame. And fittings remains unreliable and is often on the tuner since the mechanical and vibrato models remain vague. The knobs are quite effective and do the job without either reach the pinnacle of nuance.
The acoustic guitar projection is not staggering but given the price, it seems average.

SOUNDS

The pickups are nice and offer the full range of sound you should expect from a Stratocaster-type guitar.
However, it is clear that these microphones are relatively "neutral" in terms of character despite the staggering of the studs. They also lack a bit of power ... Too bad.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for over 10 years.
She had found a second life as I had offered him a new shield with excellent MS Tornado microphones and an electronic worthy of the name (selector 7 positions, capacitor paper-in-oil, wiring to the old ... ). I also shielded the guitar (which is not a luxury). The original mechanical Fender also deserved to be changed for Mecas locking to improve holding agreement.
The quality / price is right.
This is an excellent starting point for the upgrade (in my opinion it is more logical to start with this guitar with a Strat Mexico).
