Fender has made some killer guitars! Most of the time they use three single coils in most of their Strat guitars. Here they have replace the bridge pickup with a humbucker. This gives the guitar even more versatility and tonal options. I like guitars that have a single and a humbucker because then you can really switch things up. If you own an Anderson guitar then you usually have a switch to break up the humbucker but keeping it simple this way is a very great use of options.

SOUNDS

This guitars has a fantastic look to it. The vintage cream white paint coat on the body is just gorgeous. The color looks and feels like it just a has a load of soul inside of it. The only thing that I don't like in these guitars are the pickups. I am not a fan of the Fender made pickups and I would replace them all with Seymour Duncans. I am a big fan of SD pickups and since they are not too expensive and certainly cheaper than boutique pickups then I would go with them.

This guitar works well with any amp that you stick behind it. This guitar will also work for any style of music except most of the drop tuning stuff. You won't be able to get a deep thick fat metal tone from this guitar. Any of you are into that kind of music you already know that. Other than that it will suit most players just fine. It is a players guitar so it is meant to be rocked out and played hard.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars have now been discontinued with this paint job. You cans till pick up different colors but this vintage white is harder to find. Too bad because this is my favorite color. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who can find a good deal on it. I;m not sure what the going rate is but they shouldn't be that bad. Some flame tops can vary from guitar to guitar so only buy if you have see it in person and judge the flame quality.
