« Fender Strat (USA) »Published on 04/26/04 at 15:00
The tone of this guitar is great and despite it being single coil pick-ups, it is fully capable of if you want use distortion. Very veristile and can be used over a wide variety of playing styles, from rock to jazz.
There isn't much i dislike although it is difficult to get a metal sound out of this guitar, but then if you are buying this guitar you don't buy it to play metal.
The body feels very solid and the finish on it is perfect. The fret board is rosewood, which is a bit harsh to play on but is very tolerant and will last a lifetime. The rest of the neck is maple and has a nice smooth finish.
Great guitar because of its versatility and of course one of the most popular guitars in the world because of the quality of sound it produces. Doesn't look half bad either.
