This friendly copy was made in China, with an easel "vintage" on such classic strat copy, at the handle .. Say it is thin and perfect for beginners and little hands. 22 frets, 3 single coil pickups, good old strat what!
It has a volume switch and two tone controls, and the classic 5-way switch.
The handle is not a highway, but still very enjoyable, it simply accesses the high notes.
Good ergonomics, the shape is nice, and for trying real Fender, it is lighter.
One can get a good sound after a while when we started and we are at our first shovel.
Well, for one hundred roro, do not expect big sound. But it does its job. Clearly channel, one can still find a crunch by playing well on the tones, and with selector. I play a Marshall MG15DFX so versatile, powerful typed, are the watchwords.
The microphones level:
Neck pickup alone: Typed blues and rock, rather fat, tone against by it's all or nothing.
Neck pickup and environment: The most versatile for my taste. Plain or saturated it's my favorite position. You can play with two tones, so it's perfect.
Micro environment: it is only so-so, no real personality.
Middle pickup and bridge: Not very versatile, but practical, good treble, and good enough mediums. Bass is saturated inexistants.En is blah, but clean it is best to keep good treble.
Micro bridge: THEN THIS IS THE BOMB. Already dice that puts the volume increases but clearly. It is designed for hard rock to metal, but avoided to the maximum in clean. The sound is ugly, no personality, but appears in full. By no means against set the tone. It's a shame.
It's been one year since I possess, and I was advised to start a strat to be able to do almost everything. First test = first purchase!
I like the fact that it is happening everywhere, and we can play almost anything by learning to tame.
Frankly, for the price it's good. It is clear from the Squier same price or even a little higher.
As a first guitar, I would do it again. After as a replacement shovel or excavator cheap to customize, why not.
