Van Heek's review"Very nice vintage strat"

I bought this a couple months ago on a secondhand sales site in the netherlands for 65 euro . I would rate myself as a beginner player.
The man i bought it from had a couple guitars for sale 2 affinity squires and this lead star guitar.I never heard of it ,did some google and every where i saw only good revieuws so i bought it.When i came home i brought it straight to a luthier who adjusted a upbow,leveld the frets and intonated the guitar.cost me 120 euro but the result is grazy.This guitar sounds very nice and plays great.
It has a hugh brass tremelo block in it that makes the guitar feels heavier then my other guitars.
The tuners hold,and feel good rotating them ,very smooth.The bridge sadels look like they are made from steel,good quality.
The elctronics work good ,i like the five way switch ,you feel it fallung in place when you switch.The guitar makes no humming sound or buzz when i dont play and it is noisless.
I found many puctures online from the.musima lead star guitar and they al seem too have a decal that says Musima 1,2 or 3 on it,this one.just has lead star ,writen on it.I have no idea how to date this guitar on any site online using the serial number.
It has a sticker on the back reading Made in GDR . German Democratic Republic .
Very nice too have a piece of that era and the reason i bought it instead of the affinity squires that were selling almost same price.

Bill Kasper's review"Musima Lead Star Stratocaster"

Ok, I now own 2 of these East German beauties! One Blond with a fatter maple neck and one Black with a thin rosewood board, 12'' radius one both. Both guitars sound and play as good as any strat I've owned with low,buzz free action and spot on intonation. The maple neck had very sharp fret ends that needed lots of filing while the rosewood frets were absolutely perfect. Quality control issue maybe? Regardless, these strats have a true vintage vibe. Both have HUGE brass blocks and the tremolos work flawlessly.
Big surprises for me were the pickups which are low output 4k7 or there abouts. They sound percussive and stratty with knopfleresque out of phase cluck and as said by another reviewer, they are pretty quiet for true single coils.
I was prepared to relace the tuneres but, while they aren't as smooth as modern tuners they hold tune just fine so I would rather leave the guitars stock.All the hardware is first rate and all screws are hardened steel, unlike 90% of the Chinese parts today.The RFT Potentiometers are smooth and well tapered and the RFT 5-way switch feels better than an Oak or CRL switch. All in all, with a little TLC and set up these are great strat copieswith solid [maybe 2 piece] wood bodies and great tone!!!!

Made in GDR Channel 21 frets, 3 single coil pickups strat config, selector 5 pos, all in an exemplary finish after removed (welding, milling cavities and component quality microphones)


Round super nice, mine is painted black like the body. top finish! Easy access to acute .... When the sound, I agree with the opinion that I consulted before purchase (found on the right corner to rid ... 70 euros!!) ... There are the sounds of a flute Hendrix stats with the neck pickup, a bridge pickup that sends a potato with no name! Nothing to say, I'm on the c ° ° °! to have tried Fender U.S. and other Mexican Squier, this Musima Lead Star more!


It is ideally suited to the styles I practice. But this guitar has a potential inoui: clean tones, it is a delight in all and it saturates smoothly with my Vox sustain insane!


To have had a lot of guitars in all styles configured HSS / HH is the one I prefer as its versatility is great. When the value for money, you have a background in Leclerc cart for that price, so if you find one, jump on it! I would do this choice widely and it is probably the nicest surprise of my findings and business for over 20 years!

Musima Lead Star:
Stratocaster replica, made in Germany in the 70s (at least mine)
3 single coils, 5-way switch, 22 frets
Mine is red with a key and maple neck.
The bridge does not stem vibrato, unlike the above. (So flat bridge, but come away)
There is no chamfer at the bottom of the box, which differs from a Stratocaster copy.


Channel pleasant enough.
Access to treble is good.
It is a conventional weight.
The electronics are quite effective, I think.


Guitar very versatile, like a Fender Start.
I've had several guitars including a Fender Start States. (Which I am due to separate)
The Musima sounds like my fender does not rang, more vintage sound, I was very surprised by the quality of this guitar, really!
I do not regret my fender, I find that the same Musima sounds better, I know it's surprising, but it's true.
I leave all original, I play on Rivera BM60.
I've had very bad guitars, even a tube amp, it does not rang.
No microphone to complain about this guitar.


I use it for 4 years and frankly that's happiness.
The only thing I regret is not the bridge tremolo, that's all.
Buy 89 euros in cash converters, a really exellent value for money 10/10.
I do not regret my purchase, that the contrary
Test at the store, I saw and heard the undeniable qualities.
