Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Stratocaster!"
Overall: This is a very nice guitar. I have owned several Fenders over the last forty years and this one is as good or better than any of them. The tinted glossy neck is like a 50's vintage one. I once played a Stratocaster with the serial number 00024 (1954) and this one feels like that.
Style of Music: Folk, Rock, Blues.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Top Notch Strat"
Sound: Pickups are awesome. They covered the whole spectrum and even did a very good job with metal. Pinch harmonics seemed to be more pronounced on this guitar than hot humbucker equipped instruments. Feature: Tinted maple neck is fabulous. As mentioned early pickups are very hot. Worst feature on the guitar is the old syncronized tremelo, but those are horrible on all Fenders. They can be made to work, but most of us don't fool with trying. Ease of Use: Pickups and selector switch allow pretty much any sound you need, short of the obvious humbucker sounds. Neck is fast even though it is laquered. Guitar was set up pretty high from the factory. With included wrenches, I adjusted truss rod and string saddles and was able to get Fender's recommended Strat string height with no buzz...but I couldn't go any lower. Let's face it, most high dollar American or Japanese guitars are pro set-up with fret leveling done at the factory to make you think you are getting "more for your money" than the cheaper guitars like this Squier. However, you could have the frets leveled on this guitar and have super low action. But like I said, it is totally able to be set-up within spec and very playable. Quality: Paint is perfect, neck, tuners, pickups, knobs...everything seemed like high quality. I did not look at the wiring, so I can't speak to that. From all outward appearances you could stamp U.S.A. and Fender on the headstock and no one would be the wiser. Value: Probably the best value out there, short of the Classic Vibe series. If only they offered the Classic Vibe with these pickups. . . Manufacturer Support: Not need at the moment. The Wow Factor: Black pickguard, black guitar, labeled pickups, 70s headstock...it definately has the bad boy rock and roll guitar look. Overall: One of the best bang for the buck out there. Second only to the Classic Vibe series, which I think is the best valued guitar every produced. This one comes close. Pickups are hotter (if that's what you are looking for). Set-up from the factory is not as good as the Classic Vibe series. All in all, a quality instrument with outstanding looks and sound.
Style of Music: Hard rock/ Heavy Metal

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.
