Great for the price.


Had to send the first one back because the tone controls didn't work at all. Also had a big dent in the corner of the lower bout... I assume the shipper's doing. But Sam Ash made it right and replaced promptly. The second one also has a flaw: the hole in the tremolo block for the arm is drilled all the way through, so the tension spring would just fall through. Fortunately I found a screw that fit and plugged the bottom with it. I will add that this guitar plays superb. Needed a little setting up, but was almost perfect out of the box. I used the Fender manual and adjusted to their specs. Low action, no fret buzz, and plays in tune perfect! Just amazing for such a low-priced guitar. The only thing I don't like is that the volume is way louder in the treble position. But overall a great value and fun to play!

Great starter guitar


I would describe myself as an intermediate guitarist who has grown with this guitar starting as a beginner. This guitar is about 4 years old and still is in great shape. My only complaints (real complaints) are that the tone knobs aren't responsive and there is fret buzz. Otherwise, the guitar is a great little novice guitar.

A Real Prize


I have owned the Black with metallic fleck pickguard for over 5 years. When I retired 3 years ago my family took me out to buy a "real" strat. I tried out a few and told them that there wasn't enough difference to warrant spending the money. I own a 310 SG, Hamer Studio USA, A vintage 12 string and 6 string and a CPX 700 yamaha. I always pick up this one. I will be replacing the Humbucker with a better one and do some rewiring so the tone control works with it. That's my only beef with it so far. The range of sounds you can get with this thing is unreal.

good beginner guitar


this is good for beginners because of its price and it can be upgraded. ive had this guitar for 7 months and its been working very good. the one bad thing is fret buzz but it is not a major problem for me.


Hialeah, FL


Good guitar but could be better.


This guitar is perfect for a beginner but when you want to modify it or become better at guitar, then i would recommend getting a new guitar.



really good guitar to upgrade!!!


i bought this guitar to upgrade it but out of the box it was great it stays in tune really good. didnt really sound good out of the box, but i replaced the pick-ups with the emg k-21 and its sounds great

the only bad thing about this guitar is that the bridge humbucker sounds bad, it lacked clearness
