The JV Strat is a fine guitar for anyone from a beginning guitarist to a regular working musician [and I've been both]. The tremelo could be improved [as with most 6-screw units], and the single-ply pickguard is a little warped [apparently a common problem for single-plys], but its a great-sounding, well-made guitar that's fun to play, especially if you're a fan of v-shaped, 9.5" radius necks. [Neck profile and fretboard radius are of varying importance to different people. If you don't know about those topics, get someone to show you the difference between a 7.25", 9.5", and 12" fretboard radius, and a v-, c- and u- shaped neck, about all of which you can get on a strat in this same price range. I bought mine earlier this year because I've been wanting a sunburst/maple strat that I could modify without too much regard for its future value, and I didn't want to spend too much on a guitar that was likely to get different pickups, pickguard, etc. Now that I've gotten it, however, I'm not sure that I'll change anything. I've blocked the tremelo, and may get a different pickguard some day, but the sound and playability are wonderful - actually better than my 1986/87 American Standard [that I don't plan to modify one bit]. This guitar isn't going to hold anyone back from being a great guitarist.

The Jimmie Vaughan Strat fell short :( Looks Great! Feels Great! Sounds Great!......except it will not stay in tune!!! After receiving it I researched it a little more and found a few other folks complaining about the same issue. If im going to spend more money to fix the tuning issues , I might as well just slam down a couple more hundred dollars for a Standard American Strat.

Thrilled!

By MARIO TRZINSKI

from Manteno, IL

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I've had my Strat now for a month and I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. I ordered it thru my local GC and they were both quick and helpful thru the process. I found it was ready out of the box with no additional setting up. It has that wonderful bluesy/jazz sound I've been looking for without any additional purchases or changes. On playing blues I give it 5 stars. Classic rock 4.5 stars and on heavier rock and alternate Drop tuning maybe 3.5 stars. I'm not disappointed on that aspect because I bought it to play blues and it's awesome. The pick guard was a little warped but I was going to change it out anyways with a black pearl pick guard that makes the guitar look absolutely gorgeous! The color (black) is beautiful and I can't help but wipe it out down when I'm done playing it and just admiring the look. The guitar feels great, it's reasonably light, and the neck feels quick. I've played other more expensive Strats without having that blues sound I've been looking for but the tone I'm loving must be from the TexMex pickups. Save some money and check this one out.

My Number 1

By Bill Hein

from mi

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Got this guitar about a year ago now and has been my number one ever sense. I love the open middle pickup. It gives a great rock sound and works really well with distortion. Mine is the candy apple red finish, and its perfect. The neck plays like butter as well. My only complaint is the single ply pick guard. It warped(a common problem) and now sticks up about a half inch on one side. Thats no biggie though as i can always buy a new 8 ply guard.

The best MIM fender you can get...

By Kublamac

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

If you want an extremely high quality, versatile, and affordable guitar, then this is the best choice. The tex mex pickups are so hot they sound better than my American standard. Am i saying this guitar is better than an American Deluxe? No. But this guitar is amazing and the feel is so comfortable.

MMM, MMM, Good!

By SlowhanderJake

from Seattle

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is the best guitar I have ever played! The price for the quality is absolutely outstanding and anyone who buys this guitar will be totally satisfied. The neck makes for awesome playability and it is oh so fast! For the bluesy sound tex-mex is the only way to go and they are so versatile that a fuzzy Hendrix sound can be heard resonating from the neck pickup. What a great buy!

Great Bang for the Buck

By C-Rad

from Chicago

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

As a player of over 20 years, I can't tell you what a pleasure this guitar is to play. A fast neck, screaming pickups, and overall great feel is what you get in a VERY reasonably priced package. Interestingly, I am somewhat surprised that this guitar screams as well as it does (as far as strats go) because Jimmie Vaughan's tone is much more tame than the axe bearing his name! I highly recommend that you give this one a try, as it is one of the nicest sounding strats I have laid my hands on. My only complaint is that the quality of paint, pickguard, and little cosmetic touches are slightly lacking, and that's what prevents me from giving it five stars. But, as far as tone and feel goes, this thing is first rate, whether ou are a pro or hobbyist. And yes, you will absolutely have to get it professionally set up before you get the most out of it because the factory setup is for the birds. (But that's pretty much true for all guitars, in my experience). Anyhow, if you are a blues or rock guy, this is probably the best guitar for the money I have played in a long time.

Tremendous Value for a Signature Strat!

By guybo

from California

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I've had a number of guitars including a vintage '64 and this artist series is a tremendous value for a signature model! The thick maple neck and frets make for smooth blues licks! When partnered with a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue amp....it coaxes out the best SRV tones available at this price point.
