See previous opinion and the Fender site for the characteristics.
Otherwise I like the varnished wood revealing the (matter of taste), the headstock 70's, but I like a little less mechanical "vintage" but good. Very good finish overall.


The handle is going very well for the rest: weight, shape, access to acute, the Standard Start.


That's the sound of a strat US compared with a standard a little something a bit more, well, can be "nasty" I do not know, yet very warm. I play mainly blues, rock, rhythm n'blue, funk, some jazz on it. Again, this is what is expected of a stratum. And I fully agree with the fact that it takes its full dimension in a good amp.
To summarize, the sound is all good! I actually redouvert the same time the intermediate positions typical strata are excellent and the neck pickup, the sound is not very hot still, not to mention the other positions.
At the store, when I left my purchase initially for a Mexican player classic, 50's or 60's, I do not Savia too, having heard beuacoup well on these models, despite their manufacturing in Mexico. So I tried two models that were not already bad it is true, then the highway, and for me, there was no photo. The sound was rounder and more incisive at the same time, warmer, more what? (And finishing as well), justifying the price difference.
So I have no pressing need to change the pickups, with other microphones in the same range, it's more a matter of taste and quality Intrinsically (in my personal opinion).


I am very happy with my purchase, even if it is more expensive than I had originally planned to during my intense desire to play again on Start. This guitar seems to justify its price, even if we would have expected anyway, go, fly a rigid box, rather than a cover that comes with!
Finally, it is a guitar pro, no worries.
