Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great guitar"
Overall: This is the third Stratocaster I've purchased from zZounds. I just got this one today and right out of the box, it plays great! I'm going to set up this one in E flat and swap the bridge pickup out for a Dimarzio Super Distortion. I've owned and played many guitars over the years and I'm convinced that for the money, you can't do better than a MIM Strat. The finish on this guitar is gorgeous and the maple fingerboard is awesome. zZounds offers amazing customer support too. I called last week and Marcelus in the Chicago office stayed on the phone with me for over a half hour to answer my questions. This guitar arrived at my door in less than two full days after ordering it. This guitar sounds like a Strat should, chimey and crisp and the action is fantastic. The craftsmanship is beautiful as well. I find the Strats to deliver what I need in tone and playability, and again, I don't think you can do much better in this price range. 5 stars!
Style of Music: Hard rock, heavy metal, blues.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. " Exceeded expectations"
Overall: I've had this guitar about a week now and I couldn't be happier. I purchased the "blemished" model and I can't for the life of me find any imperfections at all. I placed my order early on a Friday morning and the guitar arrived late afternoon the next day! zZounds is above and beyond when it comes to shipping. The set up is nice right out of the box. After tightening the tuning heads and changing the stings it held a tune wonderfully. I may still upgrade the tuners but it's not a priority. I love the modern C neck. It feels good in my hands. It feels slimmer, but still has that strat feel. I haven't played through an amp a ton but when I did I was impressed by the pick ups. I'm def going to upgrade the humbucker, but I'm not in as big of a rush to change the single coils. As has been my experience in the past the neck and middle single coils on Mexican strats are pretty nice. I also love that they did a satin finish on the back of the neck. Big points for that. I couldn't be more pleased with the product I got for the price. I love Mexican strats and this one is the best I've owned so far. And the finish is absolutely beautiful. I love the maple top with the cherry burst.
