In my mind it doesn't get any better than the Fender Stratocaster guitar. This is a fantastic and brilliantly made instrument that is extremely versatile and can pretty much play any style of music. To me this guitar has the perfect feel, weight, and balance that I need from my musical taste. This is a very simple guitar in that he doesn't have a whole lot of extra features that you would find on many modern type guitars. It has three single coil pick ups with a volume control knob and two tone control knobs. It's a very great sounding soulful instrument that sounds beautiful in pretty much any setting that if you put it in

My favorite tone with the Fender Stratocaster has to be a Marshall plexi for input style amplifier with a nice Boss OD to overdrive pedal and a good analog delay or digital delay out front of the amplifier. To me that is the most perfect tone and probably the most versatile and resourceful tone that you can find in place in any style of music or any musical setting you find yourself in. That is such a great hard rock and pop tone that will allow guitarist to blend in with the band makes quite easily. To me that is the most perfect and simple tone that won't be the probably the most versatile tone that you can find. But pretty much any setting you put this guitar and it's going to complement your current guitar rig.


These guitars coming to you right at around $1000 or so. To me that is a great price for an American built fantastic sounding instrument. This is a great color and a classic look to a fantastic guitar at back and sound vintage in modern all-in-one. I highly recommend this guitar to any guitarist out there because it's one of those instruments that I feel every guitarist should own at one point in their career. It's a fun guitar and full of inspiration and won't give you the right tone console for any style of music.
