    Comments about Fender American Special Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    Fit and finish is very good, (Black with Maple neck) no blemishes, scratches or misalignment of any parts. Of course it required a full setup, but regardless of price, any guitar will need this. The only two items I could find fault with on the guitar was that the nut is not cut quite deep enough for good action at the first fret and in full humbucker mode the treble blends with the mids a little too much. yes, I did adjust the pickup heights to the proper specs for this model. I dialed out most of this with the amp settings, but I did have to work at it to clean it up. It does have very nice tones in the single coil modes.
    All the fret ends were clean with no sharp edges and the neck has a nice smooth finish that doesn't stick to your hand. All in all a good value for the money. I will probably wind up changing out the humbucker later on for something that has a little more clarity, but it is just fine for now. I am enjoying playing it!
