"Sexy 62"
Sound
rich warm tones or high twangy strat tones- i use it alot for RHCP covers to john mayer to hendrix Love it
Features
its meant to be vintage so not a whole lot of options besides the 5 way switch but tone control changes depth of sound nicely and works very well with the 57/62s in this bad boy
Ease of Use
its not an ibanez or prs but for a strat its easy to play the larger C neck may be hard for some players with smaller hands but i feel the tone is worth it
Quality
awesome its a strat?? it will outlast me
Value
i find myself going to this guitar more than my 3k doller prs
