  • Excerpt: This is the real deal EXCEPT for one crucial thing that separates this from a USA 50s strat or say a 1957 strat. The REASON they sound different and why Fender wants to claim American better and thousand or more is this....These 50s strats DON'T have a STEEL BLOCK.....they are cheap NON-MAGNETIC garbage BLOCKS ! Throw it away and get a real STEEL BLOCK.Fender part no.
  • Cons: Cons, Flat Sound, Has Wrong Block Not Steel

Fender 50s Reissue Stratocaster

6 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Obviously everyone who has ever played an electric guitar should experience a Strat at some point in life. Whether looking for your first, replacing a loved guitar now past for whatever reason, or simply adding to the collection; try one. Then be prepared to want it, because it's a true Fender Strat for a lot less cash than one with "Made in U...

  • Excerpt: I have kept this model shortly despite some changes had improved considerably. I then owned a American Standard, American Texas Special ue, a Deluxe American and Clapton signature. Is it worth noting that the Mexican was well below 4 other Strat? For lovers of vintage AND handyman.

" Satisfactory" - gerard04

21 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I use it for 3 months now which allows me to compare with the classic player 50s. - Of the difference in density of wood, microphones, sound is drier, less intimate, more suitable to the music that kind Shadows classic player 50s - But this guitar suffers from a default, the string spacing of the bridge, 56.4 mm which is much too...

  • Excerpt: These guitars are very easily found in the used classifieds online anywhere such as eBay or other classifieds on guitar forms and even most online retailers or music shops will carry these guitars. Sometimes they vary from neck to neck so I suggest trying out a few to find out which style that you prefer. They also come in arrangement of...

"Very cool V neck" - Hatsubai

Audiofanzine
12 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The guitar is pretty good, but be sure you like the V neck that's on this. It's a very love or hate type of neck. If you've never played a V neck before, hit up your local Fender dealer and a try a few. Some people really love them, and I think they're pretty cool, but it's not something I want every instrument to have.

Bought second hand but as new € 365 (€ 400 for) after negotiation, I think it's not a bad deal considering the quality of its finish, comfort and beauty of the handle, the sound of its microphones...

  • Excerpt: I really like the sound of this guitar but the neck is too thick for my liking so it wouldn't be a guitar that I would buy myself. I really love the finishes that this guitar come in, but the aged white knobs on it make it look cheap to me. I'd recommend giving it a go if you like the look of it as I know lots of people will like ...

  • Excerpt: Magnificent. I bought it as new 300 euros ... I still buy if you have any. In any case, a safe bet ... in 40 years it is 3000 (just kidding) and an instrument of high quality.
