If you want Buddy Guy tone...YOU GOT IT!

By Phil

from chicago Il.

Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This guitar is a tremendous example of a stand out blues guitar. It has a wonderful neck profile and is perfect for blues playing or any other style really. It has very hot sounding pickups that with a little bit of gain are strikingly pure and also very precise. I have used this guitar in a number of studio situations, mostly for lead blues solo work because it stands out noticeably from the backing guitars sounds or from the drums and bass with a definitive presence that makes this guitar special. It has great attack with a very crunchy or clean (depending on how you dial in your sound) sustain that is well above average. In my opinion this is a phenomenal instrument for any guitar player, especially the blues.=)

A Very Nice Strat

By Blues_Deluxe

from Boston, MA

Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is a very nice Strat. I'd give it 4 1/2 stars but there's no place to do so. It is every thing you'd expect from a Strat with a few unique features. As you would expect from this series the build quality is flawless, with a beautifully applied thin laquer finish. I like the light tint on the neck as opposed to the over the top amber on a lot of Fenders. The neck has a great feel. A slight V shape and thich enough to get your fingers into. I would have preferred vintage frets but everyone seems to prefer the Medium Jumbo these days. The Lace Sensors with the active mid-range boost go way back and I think this may be the only Strat left to offer this configuration. I think there are better sounding noiseless pickups these days but on this guitar a couple of positions really excel. The neck pickup with a little boost has a nice '69 - Woodstock ring and the Bridge Middle combo sounds very authentic. This is a great gig-ready guitar. I would have given it five stars except for the active electronics (I just hate having to worry about that battery.

Great Strat.

By Matt

from New York, NY

Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Not my favorite Strat on the line, but each of these artist series that I've played has been set up great and has a great sound. I'm not a fan of the gaurd or pickups on this line, but it gets a great tone of its own. I prefer the Jeff Beck model, and the 50s and early 60s re-issue Strats.
