An upgraded 2-point tremolo with a cold-rolled steel block increases sustain, clarity and high-end sparkle.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
first this guitar looks awesome i really like this guitarhowever it took a bit of time to setupnumber one when i received the guitar the springs were super loose making it impossible to tune this is my first ever fender guitar i have had other guitars that simular bridge setups for whammy i had to adjust the springs slowly until i got a stable tune i had to do this for my js100 Ibanez as well that one has a floating trem im not sure what to call the one my fender has but it is similar any ways once i got a stable tune i was finally able to intonate the guitar and of course i checked the neck relief which was fine no adjustment was needed for that also adjusted string height i realized doing this throws of intonation so i had to re intonate the guitar any ways when i finally got it setup it sounded awesome and i think this will be more stable tuning wise than my js100 especially when install the locking tuners the feel will take some getting used to it has a slightly thicker neck than my les Paul but is still comfortable i love the twang i get out of it when i play sweet home Alabama and hey joe. one negative thing that really bugs me though is the case and guitar stink to high hell of a spray paint type smell i mean it is stinking up my room fender should take a leaf from Gibson and scent there cases my Gibson had chocolate scent which rubbed off on the guitar and was heaven to smell compared to the fender toxic chemical smell the other thing is there was not much case candy read more they could have supplied a strap and maybe an inspection sheet and a manufacturer pic like Gibson does other than the toxic stink and lack of case candy the guitar plays fine sounds awesome but took some time to setup

Sound
i think it sounds great and look forward to making music with it

Features
it has a really cool single coil feature which i think sounds amazing but this guitar really needed to have locking tuners with it. with the regular tuners it comes with you are going to have highly unstable tuning due to the tremolo system i had to spend extra money to buy the tuners which i will install my self i also think it would have been nice to install buttons that work with strap lock systems i also had to buy those as well i do however under stand that i paid 1600.$ for this which i thought was a good value the case this comes with is amazing has its own lock and everything but it smells god awful has some kind of chemical smell that rubbed of on my guitar and now when i play i am smelling a spray paint type smell its horrible i am going to have to find some kind of scent to cover it up i will be scenting the case in hopes it gently rubs' off on the guitar and makes for a more pleasant smell

Ease of Use
this works great with my Marshall code 50 along with my wireless cable system

Quality
this is a solid product i think will last a lifetime its well built comfortable to hold it does not weigh to much and sounds great

Value
i think this is worth the price for most part however to be honest if i knew it would smell so bad i might have thought twice and just got another Gibson but i really wanted to try a fender out and i already have a gibson if i could solve the smell it would make it all the better

Manufacturer Support
i have not dealt directly with fender but i may contact them due to the chemical smell

The Wow Factor
what is appealing is the great fender sound what is horrible is the smell of the case and the guitar

Musical Background:
i have been playing since 2013
