"Nice Guitar, Nice Price!"

First off I chose the Black one with the trans top, It looks great. I was excited and nervous at the same time. I have a lot of Fender Strats, and wanted something, hotter and definitely built to shred. This guitar does not disappoint. Out of the box it was pretty much in tune. The setup was first rate, low action, no buzz and the Floyd was Level with the body. I played the guitar for about 45 minutes unplugged to hear and feel its resonance. I liked what I was hearing and feeling. The guitar is gorgeous and the neck is really the star of the show. Not too thin and very slick, it appears to have a minimal finish (satin maybe). It just feels right. The fit and finish on this guitar are amazing, I have many USA Guitars and this guitar is really on that level of craftsmanship. Now lets plug this thing in, I played the clean channel on my Hughes and Kettner Matrix, and it sounded very nice great body of tone with crisp highs and even low sounds. The pickups respond well to volume adjustment to lower the gain or even clean (usable) for you guys that just run wide open and used the volume to control your rig. I liked the coil tap, you can get stratty tones that you get from a single coil. There are a lot of tonal variations to be had, if you have to chose only one guitar to get you through a gig, this guitar covers a lot of sonic territory. This guitar is not just for metal or hard rock. It is a serious, versatile instrument! I bought this one to see how Charvel was building super strats and I am already planning to buy another. I took advantage of the payment plan, you can too... get it today and play on. CJWII
