Overall this is a great guitar, beyond beautiful, and is The original!!!! I had to spend a while to lower the saddles and reintonate, raise the pickups, fix the string tree, this is the Fender factorys oversight as no one should spend 700 and not have the instrument ready to rock. There should be at least a padded gig bag also. I do like the steel chrome block saddles they make a comfortable palm rest while picking, my only upgrade will be locking tuners and a new string tree-why after all these years they still keep putting a piece of crap 10cent tree on such nice guitars I'll never understand! Other than that I will be jamming and gigging on this killer axe!!!!
Sounds great after working on it for an hour or so.
The tree sucks, great saddles.
Ease of Use
This is the best guitar in the world, better than most usa models I've played.
Should last till the sun explodes.
Great value, no hard case, no padded case, just Styrofoam and cardboard.
Fender just likes to build and sell, they should be reading comments and taking care of quality control before any instrument leaves their facility.
The Wow Factor
Beautiful, plays nice, I own many different guitars.
