"Excellent guitar compared to overpriced Gibsons!"

Excerpt: I replaced the pickups with an HSS pickguard assembly, custom made using Seymour Duncan pickups as it's just my preference. Nothing wrong with the stock pick ups if you like Tex-Mex style music. Sadly, another reviewer chose to use rude language for no apparent reason to bash the basic sound without making any legitimate statement.
Excerpt: After playing Strat's for over a decade I love the balance. quack, and tonal range. The bridge pup with added tone control is a working man's best friend. I dial it down to about 6 and find a set of tones I have never heard before.
"Great value for a great guitar. Please fast and effortlessly and has a wide range of tone options."

Excerpt: I absolutely love the Texas Specials in this thing. You can get a very Blues type bark out of them and plenty of rock sound if you want. With some tweaking they are also great for softer stuff. I love the sustain that the larger headstock provides. This bad boy will also cut right through a mix providing its very own distinct sound.
Excerpt: it's simply a half assed version of the legendary highway one sss strat. doesnt have the tone versatilty or sustain the highway one sss strat has.personaly theres nothing classic when it comes to tone with the american special strat. its a waste of wood and money.
Summary: Kennt man, vertraut man, liebt man! wem ich über dieses Instrument noch was erzählen soll, der hat noch vieles zu lernen! in diesem Fal einfach mal hier vorbei schauen und den Soundbeispielen lauschen! besser als die bester überzeugungsrede!
