  • Classic Strat, High Quality

    As reviewed by Ben Richman on 1/4/2008

    I've never been a big Strat fan. I tried an American Standard and the Clapton model, but both left me cold. Then I stumbled upon the Classic Player '60s Strat. I immediately loved the feel of it--the glossy, C-shaped neck is fast and comfortable--but I was afraid that when I plugged it in, the tone would be as unimpressive as the other Strats. Boy was I wrong! This thing screams. The bridge pick-up is twangy; crank up the gain and it's sharp and abrasive, full of Hendrix-esque bravado. The other four pick-up settings are just as impressive, offering a wide variety of versatile tones. And what do you expect? This Strat might be made in Mexico, but it's custom shop designed, INCLUDING the pick-ups! The tremolo is also custom, and almost always stays in tune even if you're hard on it. The finish is also beautiful, but since it's polyester it lacks the subtlety of nitrocellulose. Still, this is an amazing guitar, and I highly recommend trying it out even if you're not a Strat fan. I wasn't one either until I picked up this baby.

  • Great guitar/Great deal

    As reviewed by Jerry Berkstresser on 5/20/2013

    Have an original 73 strat(natural)ash body maple board and it needed company. This series 60 strat is super sweet and totally no concerns in blemishes or problems of any kind-PERIOD. Pick-ups are not noise laden as someone else stated, everything is spot on, only been playin guitar since 1959 so you might want to check other's remarks also/JAM-ON.

  • Love It

    As reviewed by Brian on 8/15/2011

    Before This I owned an American Standard Telecaster Ash body and neck. Great guitar but not for me. The neck was just to thin and I really wanted that "bell" like tone you get with a Strat. I bought a Mexi Standard Strat and still was not happy. The Neck was to thin and I did not like the amount of wood that was cut out for routing. More wood = more tone. SO I did my research and found these babies. They have single coil routing meaning more wood in the body and the neck is thicker than other Strats. This is hands down my fav electric I have ever owned.
