Gotta love the Pau Ferro fingerboard, very attractive to boot. It fingers much easier than rosewood with a clearer note. The HSH pu's are well done, the bridge set is pure strat, with an ear pleasing semi hollow sound in the neck position, so it gives me two guitar sounds with one guitar. Beautiful cream finish, great electronics...This is the best MIM Fender that I've played in a long time and my thanks goes to Fender for putting out this great guitar.
It's sound quality is tops, it can play anything that you want to play which fits my style to a tee, really well engineered and very playable. Mine is set up to finger easy with easy picking. The best MIM Strat ever. Very useful sounds coming from the PU's, a well balanced Strat. Tops !!!!
An alder body coupled with the pau ferro fingerboard offer us players the best of the best using 09-42 strings, pretty top notch well made guitar.
Ease of Use
This gem is full of sounds, very flexible.
Guitar appears well engineered and made, I've had mine only a moth but it feels and seems like it is going to last for the long haul.
Well worth twice the amount, try one and you won't be sorry. Take good care of this gem and it'll pay you back many times over.
Manufacturer Support
Never had to contact Fender, always settled things thru dealer if needed
