Overall: I just got my strat in (jade). I love it, neck is so smooth and sound is awesome. I have a mini for my son, a squire bullet, and just sold a modern player to get this one. The modern player was nice but no where near the level of comfort or beauty that is an American Strat. Thank you zZounds for giving me the ability to own an American strat.

Overall: Great sounding guitar. I did have to do a setup on mine although it played pretty good right out of the box. I would buy it again no question ask. Thanks zZounds as always a great product and financing at the price as any other store but without interest.

Overall: I have several guitars and all are different. What I like about this one is the neck, the rolled edges, and the sweet, sweet tones it creates. Just lovely. I love the diamondback and the fat 50's. an excellent combo. I have the Jade pearl as I have several sunburst fenders and its a beauty

Overall: Had this guitar for almost a year and will never let it go. The Custom shop 50's are wonderful. If you like a well pronounced bell tone Strat, this is it. They are hot and the diamond HB is a perfect match. It sounds great through my Line 6 Spider and unbelievable through my Fender Twin Reverb. I am so impressed with this guitar I am considering buying another with the three single 50's and a Rosewood neck. I let my Clapton Strat go back in 2006 and have regretted it ever sense. This guitar has eased my pain.
