Summary: I bought this guitar second hand, the reason being i had it shipped internationally. This is probably one of the best buys I've ever made. This guitar is the best clean sounding guitar for the price. I mean it can get any better than this. The noiseless pick ups are amazing. Hey, Eric Clapton uses them. The tremolo arm doesn't put the guitar off tune. The finish was extraordinary (the pictures don't do justice). This guitar is perfect for replicating RHCP, Jimi, SRV etc.
Pros: Fun To Play, Good Feel, Good Pick Up, Good Tone
Summary: I love this guitar! It has sounds that no other stock Stratocaster provides. The Deluxe Player's Strat has a push-button switch that gives the two pickup combinations that are missing with the standard 5-way Strat switch---namely, all three pickups, and the bridge+neck pickups, which happen to be two of the coolest sounds on the guitar.
Summary: I got this guitar at the local music store and it sounded amazing with the pickups it had but i put some custom shop 1969 pickups and no it screams vintage strat overall i would recomend this guitar to everyone
Summary: Talk about the looks and the works, this one makes a five. The sound is a little bit tangy but with thicker strings, problem solved. You might have to add one more of those tension springs at the back to compensate for the heavier strings. The pickups are one of the best. No complains. You get that sweet crisp sound that can only be heard from a fender. The reason why I gave it an overall four is because the intunation is very poorly adjusted.
Summary: My son bought this guitar and we both love it! He chose the blue transparent finish. I have to say the pictures do not do the finish justice. The wood grain looks awesome. The neck has a really nice feel. The vintage noiseless pikups get a great tone for everything from metal (my son) to bluesy rock (me). The extra button that activates the middle pickup give lots of options including a gritty Stevie Ray vibe.
Summary: This guitar, right out of the box was ready to play. The action was set perfect and Im amazed by how well it stays in tune. This guitar is available in many colors. I chose the Sapphire blue with the maple fret board. What I like is the fact that the body is of ash wood. Certainly gives it some weight, but I love the rich depth and sound you get. The neck is a 12" radius C-shaped neck and is very comfortable and easy to play.
Summary: The guitar is strikingly beautiful- nicely grained ash body through the sunburst finish, and gold finished hardware. Noiseless pickups are truly silent- comparable to my American Deluxe's SCN pickups or the humbuckers on my Gibson LesPaul. Neck feels great and I like the 12" radius. Frets finished nicely-no rough edges on mine...don't know if all coming out of Ensenada are as nicely finished.
Summary: I have played lots of gutars over the past few decades, but I'm always drawn to Strats. I got this one at the music store, they set it up for free, and it has been an absolute joy to play. I like the push button for more combinations, but even in traditional settings it's hot. I got the maple fretboard, and it is sso smooth and fast! It is great for Blues, Rock, eetc.. Give one a try before you buy anything else.
Summary: This guitar is one heck of an instrument. Its got american pickups that sound awesome on even a small amp. It stays in tune really good. It comes with pretty good strings. Its a beautiful instrument (i got the rosewood red) It's great for performing, recording, practicing, or even just playing around your house. I would definatly recommend this guitar to anyone.
