Fender is probably the biggest music company in the world when it comes to amp and guitars. 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.

The feel of the instrument has to be the very most important thing to me. Sure it does need to sound right but the feel will be the first determining factor in any future purchase of a guitar. When you first walk into a music store or shop, you pick up the guitar and take a quick strum of the strings without out being plugged into an amp. You can hear the resonance and craftsmanship when hearing it unplugged. These old Fender guitars has such age to them and the wood is also harder now so it resonates even more

UTILIZATION

This guitar doesn't take too much to get a great sound out of it. It already sound amazing on its own. The older wood and the craftsmanship is immediately recognized when you first pick up the instrument. Evey thing about this guitar is stable and sturdy. The pickup s were wound better in those days but I still would swap these out for some better modern wound single coil pickups.

SOUNDS

This guitar has such a deep soul that is just alluring. This fine instrument is so silky and smooth that is makes you amp sing like it was meant to be together. This guitar will connect with you like no other guitar can and probably ever will. There is a reason why these guitars have been copied the world over and still remain one of the most classic icon on music history. The tone from this guitar is absolute top notch.

This is an extremely versatile guitar with the 5 way selector switch and three single coil pickups. Any old amp will do with this guitar. This guitar will also work for any style of music except most of the drop tuning stuff. You won't be able to get a deep thick fat metal tone from this guitar. Any of you are into that kind of music you already know that. Other than that it will suit most players just fine.

OVERALL OPINION

You can still find these guitars in some specialty shops or dealers who specialize in vintage guitars. They do cost quite a little bit but less than ,nay custom shops that are sold new today. It is a great guitar and has a fantastic feel and touch tot he neck.
