These vintage new guitars are ever increasing in popularity over the last few years. Guitar manufacturers are now producing pre worn guitar that look like the have gone through the ringer right out of the shop. I actually like this idea because the guitars tend to have a nicer feeling neck as the worn feel gives it some soft characteristics and simply feels nice as you run your hand down it.

These guitars are not that expensive either so it makes for a nicely priced guitar that feel right, right out of the box.

SOUNDS

The tone of these guitars do not change from any other Fender Stratocaster that anyone has ever played. If you have played one American Fender Stratocaster than you know exactly how one sounds. there isn't too much variation of tone between Strats. They either sound like a Strat or they sound like a Strat. You can tell the difference in a Gibson Les Paul, a Fender Telecaster, and Fender Stratocaster. They each have their won tone and sound that uniquely their own.

This guitar will work in any environment. They sound good with fender amps and they sound goo with Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifiers as well as they sound with any Marshall. They sound just flat out amazing to me.

OVERALL OPINION

First I would change out the pickups of this guitars as the stock ones are flat out terrible. As most Fender pickups are they sound bright and do not match the qualities of the wood work. It amazes me how poorly built the fender pickups have always been. To me they have never gotten it tight, not once.

At new you can pick this guitar up right around $900, which isn't bad for the price. A nice guitar at a decent price.
