Value For Money : Excellent
Fender Standard Floyd Rose version 2010
Color Arctic White
Rosewood handle
21 jumbo frets
A Fender humbucker bridge
2 Single coils (neck and central)
Volume 1 General
2 Tones
A 5-way switch.

UTILIZATION

The neck of this guitar is really very nice with a satin finish (we like it or not) fingers marching alone, no hanging from the top to the bottom of the handle without worries.

Weight level is the same as a standard Fender.

Access to treble is also very good although we regret the absence of a twenty-second box (her sister owns the 22nd American box) but this is a detail.

The humbucker is a classic humbucker, but very effective and accurate! (+ Or maybe even accurate than its sister U.S.). The other two single coils are very well what they are asked, what are micro Fender Standard!

The 5-way switch and tone knobs are very good too.

The Floyd Rose is, to my great surprise, as accurate as its U.S. big sisters, I conquered.

Note that the words "Made in Mexico" is in the back of the stick to clear the front, which is not worse.

SOUNDS

I play all blues, funk, rock or metal (The Blues Brothers by Iron Maiden "place") and she is doing wonderfully! a treat! (All combined with a Marshall Valvestate 1988 and / or multi-purpose Zoom G9.2).
I personally think it could very well be an illusion to the metal present (with an amp that goes with it too!).

The good in crunch Heavy distortion and slight foot ...= Crunch!
The sounds are also very good light.

Really great allrounder! at the same time this is requested.


OVERALL OPINION

I've had it one month and a half now, I have acquired for my U.S. Fender Floyd Rose sits a little after 15 years of service, and well I do not regret my choice at all, absolutely not one second! !

Whether in studio mode and / or Live, it is very very good road.

The only thing that may surprise, especially for those who play on the U.S. is different varnish .... it surprised me at first, but we forget very quickly because the comfort is there. And the absence of the 22nd case ... but it is really to quibble.

I took it to 645 € at Thomann (between 800 € and 900 € in France) so excellent value for money! with a Fender gigbag that came with.

I would do if this election? ABSOLUTELY!
