The Fender Strat could be the best guitar that has ever been created. Not a fan of three single coils as I am some humbuckers but this is a gem of an instrument. Fender is the kind of the single and yet classic looking guitars. The Stratocatser in one of the most iconic guitar that this world has ever known. Second and third would probably be the Fender Telecatser and the Gibson Les Paul. There is a soul and tone that comes from this guitar that no other guitar can match. It is silky and resonant which just a hint of aggression.

This guitar is a Sienna sunburst with a rosewood fretboard. The sienna sunburst is very cool and one of my favorite colors on this guitar but I don't think it matches the rosewood as much as the maple. I like the rosewood on the traditional 3 tone sunburst but not with the sienna. It is too dark with this transparent job.

SOUNDS

The first thing is that this guitar is built to rock. Their is a soul that not another guitar can capture like this instrument. I would have to replace the pickups in these guitars because Fender pickups are just terrible. They are worse than Gibson pickups and those sound like garbage. Other than that the guitar is a true gem to be played.


This guitar sound great in any amps mix. No matter what your amp is or what set of preamp tubes or power tubes you have this guitar will just sound excellent. You get a great tone out of a Fender amp and will get you those classic vibe cleans sounds. If you play with a Marshall plexi style amp just get a Big Muff fuzz box and you will be killing it with some Jimi Hendrix tones.

OVERALL OPINION

At new you can pick these guitars up for right around $1149, which is a great price for an American made guitar. There is a bit of an up charge on this sienna burst over the other models since there is a little more work involved with this paint job. This is classic guitar and meant to be cherished and played. You can abuse these guitars and they will stay true to you. I highly recommend everyone to own at least one Fender Stratocaster at least some point in your life. Everyone deserves a little soul.
