This guitar is a work of art. I play this guitar every day, and what can i say, its a Fender Stratocaster. At this point about a week in this purchase i am trying to find something wrong with it. The pick ups are exactly the ones i need to play what i play and that's the blues. Its just a sweet guitar, came right out of the box set up and ready to play. The only thing wrong with this purchase is that the guitar did not come with a hard case. But i am glad it came with a gig bag. That saves me a couple hundred.
