guitar is great

By kfly8375

from knoxville, tn

i bought this guitar used a little over a week ago and love it. The person who owned it before me upgraded the tremolo,nut,tuners and pickups and this thing rocks. I would recommend this to anyone


nice beginner guitar

By Chris

from Springfield, NJ

Overall a very nice starter guitar for the price. The only real gripe I've had with this strat so far is that it tends to go out of tune when you use the whammy bar excessively. If you've got the cash, definitely get the American version which in my opinion has much better tone and has some better quality parts, but if that is out of your price range, this is your next best bet if you're looking for that strat sound. The humbucker at the bridge grants you a sharper tone for the heavier and harder stuff as opposed to all single coils. Great for a wide range of playing styles. Definitely worth it at this price, go out and try one for yourself.

A must have for every one

By Mr Brown

This Gutiar is great i bought it for my school for my students to play and when i played it i decided to keep it, the humbucker pick up sounds great with the 2 single coiled and you have a variety of tones. If you are just starting or are gigging, buy this.



By J.Hendrix_yea!

from houston

Through this guitar you really can pretty much get any sound u want! The pickups are nice and clear. The single coil pickups makes it the perfect guitar for blues and because of the humbucker its really great for that rock sound or any sound you want from blues to metal! The guitar stays in tune pretty well and has a nice and low action. The neck is what drew me to this guitar...its so comfortable! i can play anything i want with an ease! I bought this guitar a couple of days ago and i just cant seem to put it down! i really am happy with this purchase and if you buy it im sure you will too


Just Wow.

By Rob

from Coppell, Texas

I have to say, this guitar is amazing. Right out of the box it played amazingly. The best part about the guitar, however, is the fact that the wood and body of the Mexican made Strat are the same make and design as that of the American made standard. That means that if you buy some Texas Special Strat pickups, the guitar sounds exactly (if not better than) like an American made Strat. I would recommend this to anyone who is willing to dish out the cash for some amazing pickups. But yes, the guitar itself is absolutely stunning in quality for the price it is offered at.


hss strat

By Casey Allen

from TN

I've had this guitar for a while now and i have to say its really good for a mexican strat.I recommend you buy this if you dont want to spend a lot of money,the tone is great,and the colors are freakin sweet,good durability(so far)its a great guitar you should buy it.



By Vince

from Washington

Ok, i have owned this guitar for the past 4 months and i am always amazed at the vast array of tones i can get out of it. I can get nice distortion from british rock to heavy metal while im in the humbucker (bridge) position. And when i switch to the clean channel on my amp and switch to the single-pickup neck position, i can get a nice crisp, clean tone. There are no problems with fret buzzing in this guitar. It's so versatile that when i perform i dont ever have to pick up another guitar. I have the brown sunburst finish with the rosewood fretboard and it is a truly beautiful guitar. The pics don't do it justice. It's awesome as a beginners guitar and for more experienced player that seek a solid, reliable guitar.


Amazing quality at a low price

By Joe

from MD

I got this guitar today, and I am quite impressed. The variety of tones you can get with this thing is huge. The humbucker allows you to get a good heavy metal sound with lots of distortion, while the single coils have a 'twanginess' that you can't get with a humbucker. The tremolo does cause the strings to lose tuning rather easily, but locking tuners should fix that problem. A great buy, especially when you consider the price.


My new favorite guitar

By Curt Unruh

from Tallahassee, Florida

I've been playing strictly as a hobby for 30 years. I've got a Gretsch Electromatic DuoJet, and an SG plus my original starter guitar but since I brought this guitar home I haven't picked them back up. I may as well sell them off. This guitar's playability and tone versatility is simply amazing.
