    "Best American Made Instrument For Me By The People"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    The sound is out of this world on this guitar, 2 Texas Specials and 1 Atomic Humbucker with the Greasebucket tone Circuit. I love playing Cream stuff and I can nail that Woman Tone nicely on the the bridge humbucker with the Tone Knob down to like 2-3 and a nice amp eq setting. The Bridge Pup isn't to muddy but it has to much treble but I can lower it down and get it balanced. The Neck Texas Special is smooth and bassy, the Middle is spiky a bit since it has no tone knob but I love it when I put it in the 4th position because it balances out with the Neck and since the Middle Pup is reverse wound it is hum canceling in the 4th position and I dont have to waste money on Noiseless pickups to perform live without 60 hum although I dont mind recording with the hum, thats what makes a Strat sound awesome. I mostly play blues and alternative rock and I can get both sounds without switch to another guitar.
    Feature:
    Guitar came with case candy: Manual, Allen Wrench, Polish Cloth, Registration Card and Tags. Basic Stuff. The best feature on this guitar would be the Urethane finish on the body since it wont get chip and dent a easily. The least impressive part is the tuners, they are the typical ones used in MIM Strats and I will replace them once I get my funds. I am lucky that my guitar seems to be a 2 Piece Alder right down the middle, it might be 3 but I cant see it, but it sure matches Gibson guitars who also uses 3 piece body and unlike MIM Strats that have 5 Piece Alder.
    Ease of Use:
    I can get the tones and sounds I need easily, I can basically call this my Album Collection. One minute I can play almost any tone from Clapton to SRV, from Smashing Pumpkins to Pixies, Jimi to Muddy Waters and from Cannibal Corpse to Megadeth. The guitar is made to be used with ease, it has .09-.42 gauge strings (my fave) so the strings bends like butter on the jumbo frets. If you can't play with this guitar in your hand you must find another instrument to play.
    Quality:
    American Stratocaster are the ones that you can get onlibe and be satisfy, Mexico ones you have to go and find the one that is just right. This guitar has 0 sharp frets, excellent crafting from top to bottom. It is seems very sturdy and doubt it will fail at home or on the road.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I don't like contacting Fender because they never reply so If I need help with guitars I go to my luthier but I give a 10 to SameDayMusic for support, there 2 Easy Payment Plan which help a fellow like me pay for half of a beautiful instrument until my next spendable paycheck and there outstanding customer service and fast shipping.
    Value:
    I got this Stratocaster blemished from SameDayMusic and I couldnt be any happier it will hold its value and I am in love with this guitar. Has some scuffs and pick scratching and really small ding on the body and it still is worth what I paid for it.
    The Wow Factor:
    This guitar looks as how it plays, the best thing about the guitar is the Sunburst and the black pickguard. It goes hand and hand, I love the 70s Headstock it is big and reminds anyone of those times.
    Overall:
    This is my 19th electric guitar I have purchased (from Gibson LPs, SG, V Fender Road Worns Strat, Jazzmasters, Mustang, Jackson V, Kelley, Ibanez Art, G&L S500) and I can happily say I will not go for 20th anytime soon. This satisfy both my needs for playing. I think I found the right guitar and I will not let this one go. If lost or stolen, I will hunt for it for 3 days buy another one and hire the Seal Squad that took out Osama Bin Laden to find the son of a gun who stole my guitar. I have already given her a name and she has only been in my position 12 hrs and I have not let her go but just to eat and write this review. Thank you Fender and Thank you SameDayMusic.
