Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1570 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Can't Pass up this deal!"
Sound: My style is mostly blues and Pink Floydish rock. Sometimes I like to mess around with heavy metal, but I use my Les Paul for that. The pickups are amazing for stock and I really have no desire at all to replace them. They can be a bit noisy with a lot of gain, but for middle-of-the-road distortion, you can't beat this. The clean sound I get is pretty close to my Highway One Stratocaster with vintage Jeff Beck Noiseless pickups. I'm not kidding! Feature: It only came with a nice gig bag, which I replaced with a nice Gator hardshell case, but still for only $400, I feel like I still owe Fender more money for this guitar. The springs for the tremolo were only three, so I added the extra two and it works perfect for me. I don't do dives with the whammy, so it stays in tune for a very long time. Ease of Use: I get all sounds I desire from this guitar. The neck is very easy to be fast with and it fits very well. The contours of a stratocaster just mold to a person's body anyway, and this thing fits like a glove. It comes with a real nice owners manual that covers a lot of maintenance and repair, but it should go to a luthier with anything major. Quality: There's just no difference to me that it was made in Mexico. These are American Fender parts and with a nice alder body and maple neck/maple neck, I could not be happier. I'm not at all worried about anything breaking on me, and I'd take it on the road without hesitation. It's solid! Value: Like I said, for $400, it's a supreme deal and I would have paid more for something with this quality. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with support. The Wow Factor: It's black and it came with a white pickguard, white knobs, and white pickup covers. All the white parts have been replaced with black and it's a sexy black beast now. I adore it's looks! Overall: I'll play this for a long time, maybe the rest of my life. I can't imagine ever having a need or want to replace it. Thank you Fender!!!! If it were lost or stolen, I'd cry like a little girl and then do everything in my power to replace every single piece of it. If I had $400 more to spare, I might go all out on an American standard, but there's only a slight difference.
Style of Music: Rock, Blues, Fusion, sometimes a little Metal

"Dont know why anyone would pay for an american with this available. setup in strats and any other fender is what makes the soun"
Sound: sounds better than the american .... I played em side by side atthe store (didnt buy it from this site)..this one is a little more bell-tone sounding...i hate when people say its a good beginner guitar..I think the squire is better for beginners considering they only cost 150$ . sounds of guitars are all different due to neck curve string height and wood used..even if same type wood. I actually like light weight wood as it is less hard sounding. Feature: simple and true to the original strat..american strats have funky features i dont need. Quality: wood and metal ..just like the original..prolly better. Value: less than half of an american. if u really want the loud pickups ( i don't) buy some and put em in..u still save a bundle. Manufacturer Support: fix it urself. what do u want for $350? The Wow Factor: I'd rather have my Jazzmaster that was ripped-off..but strats are always nice. Overall: I think the problems ppl have if any with this are personal taste issues and not quality.
Style of Music: other world...u wouldnt understand..series of beeps and tones to contact planetary life

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.
