4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Love it"
Overall: I bought this from zZounds and I'm very pleased with my purchase. With a full set up, this guitar plays great and sounds phenomenal. I love the pickups, they clean up well and have great sustain. The tremolo stays in tune with the gears that are supplied, but I'm going to put some locking gears on and make this thing a beast. I can't believe the quality of this guitar for the price.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very nice guitar for the money."
Sound: The sound would be fine for most folks. The guitar is very quiet when not playing. Pick up quality, sound-wise was a bit muddy for my taste, maybe 3.5 out of 5. Feature: The wiring and shielding was pretty good, but the guitar cavity in my opinion is not routed large enough for the wiring and components. There is very little room for error. I believe this is why the volume pot shorted out. This is common with ALL guitar companies. Ease of Use: Personally, I really liked the "feel" of neck. Easy to play; great for small hands... Quality: The finish was fine. The guitar was solid; no loose parts or screws. The tuners and 2-Point Synchronized Bridge were very substantial and worked well together and were of a much better quality than I expected. The fret quality was low, it feels like sand paper when bending strings; the fret edges were a bit to sharp for me. These feel like medium frets; not medium jumbo frets. The intonation was OK and the action was decent. Value: For the money, this one is a pretty good buy. I have played guitars for twice the cost that weren't as good. The last several Fender products I have purchased or tried out were of good quality. Manufacturer Support: Fender has excellent customer support. Overall: First of all, I bought a blemished model, so I paid less than the full price for a new one. Out of the box, plugged in, the guitar wouldn't make a sound. After a few hours of disassembly, I found the problem, the volume pot was shorting out internally against some other wiring which I fixed. The things I liked: the tuners and 2-Point Synchronized Bridge were very substantial and worked well together and were of a much better quality than I expected. The feel of the neck is nice and slim; very fast. The intonation was fine and the action could be set quite lower if needed; I had no problem with fret buzz. The bad: I am a professional so..... if I were to use this guitar in order to make a living, I would swap out the pickups and get the instrument re-freted and dressed with quality materials.
Style of Music: All styles, including my own.

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.
