The day I switched from playing an acoustic to an electric I took a trip to Guitar Center to see what they had. Through all the garbage they have hanging on their wall this beautiful sun burst Strat which was calling out to me. I took it off the wall and felt the neck which was amazing. The previous owner has taken off the lacker finish on the neck and it was just an oiled finish. It was so smooth and comfortable which sometimes can be a hit or miss with Strats. It felt like a guitar that had some play on it and it just formed into your hand. Much like the new Charvels it feels as though it gets better the more you play it.

This one has an Ash body and a Maple neck. I took out the pickups since the neck pickup died. So I went with some Dimarzios which are ok, but not great. I think I would want to try some Seymour's in there next time if I get around to switching.


The guitar is easy as pie. It has three controls knobs consisting of one volume and two tone knobs. One of them I don't use ever. I do roll off some of the highs with the back tone knob. I think it helps bring them down in this guitar. I heard another guitar player does this and it helped in his guitar and I have always complained about how bright the guitar can be. So rolling down the tone a by to around 6 or 7 helps quite a bit.


When it comes to the sound of a Strat there really is no other. I hear guys talk about finding a Strat sounding guitar and look to Suhr and Anderson and completely bypass the sound that started it all. The sound is everyone from Jimmy to John Mayor and in between.

I use this guitar with an assortment of amps and cabs. Today I was jamming it with my Splawn Quickrod and vintage Marshall 4x12 with Blackback Celestion speakers. I had such a great tone coming from this setup. I love the tonal possibilities I get with this combination. It sounds so choice when I slap a Wampler Analog echo in the effects loop.

I play rock music and this guitar is great for my style. I love Charvels and will probably put this guitar down when I get one of those. I prefer humbuckers to the single coils.


This a guitar that I will have forever. Since it was my first guitar and very special to me I will never let it go. This guitar has such a great tone and feel that is hard to find sometimes. The neck is comfortable and just rips. My hands glide with easy with the bare oiled neck. If I ever buy another Fender Strat I will have someone take off the lacker on the back of the neck.

I would recommend this guitar to any guitar player. Everyone needs a Fender Strat in their arsenal. A great everyday guitar and a players dream. So many tonal possibilities that will accompany anything musical genre from pop to modern rock.
