Fender Left-Handed Strat Customer Review
Overall: 6 out of 10 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
i would advise you to go see the guitar and play it in person. quality varies and some are pretty good, while others are not.
Sound
there is a difference between ceramic and alnico magnet pickups. it isn't just the differences in their magnetic qualities. it is the fact that alnico magnet pickups have 6 small magnets and ceramic magnet pickups have 1 magnet with 6 steel polepieces. if the presence, or absence of tone pickups in the chain effects the tone, what do you think having a different number of magnets will do? these pickups suck, unless you're a bad contemporary country musician.
Features
pots are weak, the pickups are loud, but the tone isn't great. the 5 way switch is cheaper than the americans... the trem block is substandard import quality... nothing to brag about but its all there.
Ease of Use
these aren't very well crafted. that translates to an uncomfortable neck profile and so-so frets.
Quality
these were made to compete with cheap imports, and bring in some of the money that once leaked to japan and korea.
Value
buy it used, or buy an american. a real american, and not a highway 1.
