Summary: The Classic Player's 50s Strat is the absolute best deal out there for a great playing and better looking Stratocaster. After a week of playing it alongside my '57 AVRI and American Standard, I can confidently say that it is the best gear purchase I have ever made. With a few tweaks, it is certainly my preferred player, and even those tweaks were minor. I added two tremolo springs and lightly sanded the gloss from the back of the neck.
Summary: This guitar sounds great for a Mexican made guitar! I've played other Mexican strats and the quality of the hardware was poor! This guitar on the other hand feels great to play! There is a big difference in the feel and sound of this guitar compared to my other mim. This guitar feels lighter ... The soft v neck feels really smooth and easier to play and comfortable. I love the vintage American hardware ..
Summary: I bought this guitar one year ago and I love it more and more all the time. I got the Shore Line gold and it looks so different in person. Very striking. The soft V neck will spoil you. Nothing else feels good to me now. The pick ups are classic sounding strat sounds. It has a vintage sound and that is what i wanted. Great for everything except real heavy stuff. Well made and miles ahead of the standard mim strats.
Summary: This baby comes with 10 GA strings (not fond on too many factory guitars). If you like the best thick warm sound an electric can bring; this is it. If you like screamers, this guitar is not for you. Very solid and has the same type of bridge as fenders Americans. No buzz at all; this is the most buzz free guitar I have ever had.
Summary: When i received this guitar, it was the most comfortable guitar i have ever played. It sounds awesome, and all of the pick-up's sound great. It is mexican made, which shouldn't matter because it plays just as well or even better than any american strat. There is no downside to this guitar!
Summary: I'd been searching for a guitar with a broad range. I wanted super thin tele twang that would get fat. I wanted good mids and bass tone. I wanted clean like a saint and dirty distorted like a devil that I could whammy. My work was cut out for me. I have owned a Fender American Deluxe and have played other mexicans and even the new highway one. One day, I was online searching thru some spec sheets and there it was: the Fender Classic Player 50's strat!
