Missing Twang

  • Summary: I was surprised that the was little difference between my standard stratocaster and the JV strat. It actually had less sound to it. So much for Tex Mex pickups.

This guitar cannot be beaten

  • Summary: The Fender Jimmie Vaughan strat is an absolute blast to play. By far the nicest feature is the soft v maple neck. The v is perfect and with medium jumbo frets you can really dig in when you bend. Pickups are really nice. The middle pickup is reversed so you get noise cancellation in the 2 and 4 position. The bridge is hot! Definitly have enough grit there when you need to get a little dirty. Neck pickup is very creamy and has a great bluesy sound to it.

Awesome!

  • Summary: This guitar is completely under-rated! With its combination of Tex Mex pick ups and extra hot bridge pickup, not only can it produce clean bluesy sounds, it can really scream when you need it to. The soft-v neck, medium jumbo frets and vintage feel make it an excellent guitar for the price.

Best Strat for your money, period.

  • Summary: Vintage, American hardware, wiring, and Tex-Mex pups coupled with a neck that begs to be played...what more can you possibly want that this guitar doesn't have? Yeah, ok, the pickguard it comes with is the weakpoint but it's only a $30 remedy. Stop by your local store and play one. You'll understand.

Not very good at all

Mitch S., music123

  • Summary: I've been playing various guitars for fun and professionally for over 35 years. When I gave my '63 strat to my daughter I decided to try one of the new budget priced "Hotter" fenders for fun on the advices from friends. My friends said for the price this is a really great 'Hot' guitar which would go great with some of the vintage and blues I play. Well, I've had this Fender for a year now and it's okay but I really don't recommend it.

Great for everything

  • Summary: I've owned several guitars higher and lower priced than this guitar. This guitar is one of the best I've ever played. It has the best neck, but I like thick necks. Its tonal possibilities are endless. I play modern rock and I have no problem with distortion and in position 2 and 4 I have had no feedback problems playing through my peavey 5150 and through my marshal VS265.

Great Player for the money

  • Summary: I love everything about this Guitar! You can't beat it for the price. It sounds great on all settings and delivers tone that you find on guitars costing hundreds (maybe thousands) more. My only complaint as has been mentioned on other reviews, the one ply pickguard, which is easily remedied.

Perfect

  • Summary: This is the perfect axe in every way! The neck is shaped just so that you never want to let go. The weight distribution is right-on. The action is set perfectly. I have no complaints about this axe except it comes with a stock one ply pickguard which can easily be swapped out for about $15.

INCREDIBLE!

  • Summary: This guitar is perfect for playing the blues. This guitar has several features only available on higher end artist models, and for the price is great. I run it through a line6 ax212 and it sounds incredible in almost any setting. After proper setup, this guitar plays perfectly. Even with the maple neck, it's great for playing fast solos and leads.
