5 out of 5 (39 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Sexy 62"
Sound: rich warm tones or high twangy strat tones- i use it alot for RHCP covers to john mayer to hendrix Love it Feature: its meant to be vintage so not a whole lot of options besides the 5 way switch but tone control changes depth of sound nicely and works very well with the 57/62s in this bad boy Ease of Use: its not an ibanez or prs but for a strat its easy to play the larger C neck may be hard for some players with smaller hands but i feel the tone is worth it Quality: awesome its a strat?? it will outlast me Value: i find myself going to this guitar more than my 3k doller prs Manufacturer Support: havent had to deal with them The Wow Factor: got mine in sunburst super sexy :)

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Smokn Hottttttttttt"
Sound: I own and play many strats. This one is #6 and its my #1. Sounds awesome and plays like butter. What I like most is the neck. You get the old look but plays so easy and smooth. Feature: 5 way switch is good. I would have gone with a hard tail if it where available but I just added two more spring and we're good. Ease of Use: I use blonde fenders,black panels,plexi's and a master volume jcm 800. This strat is all I need. All I need to do is choose the amp ill be using to fit the gig. Quality: Its still new but it looks as good as my L series and it has 5 way Value: List price is high but I got a good deal at zzounds The Wow Factor: It looks so cool. Jeff Beck Wired. Look at the album cover.Olympic White!!!!!!!! Overall: Will never sell it and if something did happen I would get another one

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
