Reviews

From Hendrix to Clapton, Mark Knopfler to Buddy Holly, the Fender Stratocaster has been the number 1 guitar of choice of thousands of great guitarists past and present. It's no wonder... This guitar is so versatile, and you'll probably notice that plenty of modern guitars (so called "super-strats") emulate so much of the original from the three pickup arrangement, to the recessed input jack and tremolo mechanism.

Mexican made Strats are a step up from Squier branded instruments and a really affordable way to get into the Fender brand which is signified by high quality instruments that are a joy to play and sound like all the hundreds of records that probably influenced you to start playing the electric guitar in the first place!

Here's what Fender say about the Standard Stratocaster

The Standard Stratocaster guitar offers legendary Fender tone with classic styling. Features include three single-coil pickups, synchronized tremolo with high-mass bridge block, tinted neck, shielded body cavities, medium jumbo frets, parchment pickguard and '70s-style headstock logo.

    The Midnight Wine finish on this instrument becomes quite glorious under a bright light - it really sparkles. Some players dislike a gloss finish on the neck, but I love it, it is super fast and silky smooth. The fret edges are all beautifully dressed but, strangely, the edges of the nut are rough and unfinished. My main niggle is the neck pick up. Why on earth did Fender design a pick up that was too wide for the spread of the strings? The four centre strings sit pretty well over their respective poles, but the high and low E strings are miles away from their poles. The result is a noticable drop in volume when soloing from say the B string up to the top E. Adjusting the string height/pick up angle helps a little, but would a car manufacturer design a car with one wheel that didn't quite touch the ground? That said, in all other respects this is a quality guitar, but only four stars because of that silly neck pup.
