This thing rules!

By Exavier Viramontez

from Albuquerque, New Mexico

I had been looking for a guitar that could go from super sensitive warm clean tones to hard, heavy riffage for a long time. I am proud to say that when I bought this guitar my search was over. Not only does it have killer clean tone, but the minute I kick up the distortion this guitar takes it like a dream! The sustain is wicked, and the guitar is road ready. If you are at all interested in this masterpiece, just do it!

Just the Strat I'd been looking for

By Greg G.

from Des Moines, Iowa

This is a really special strat. It is one of my favorite go-to guitars. It's super versitile. I've always loved strats, but I prefer a hardtail - which is really hard to find. I also want to be able to add some gain and distortion without all the single coil noise. With humbuckers all around, this thing will scream and sustain with my Les Paul. But amazingly, it can still sound like a strat too. The neck is super fast and I personally love the jumbo frets. My only gripe is that I'm not really a black and white guitar guy - I wish you could get this setup in some additional colors. However, it's still an cool looking guitar and the tweed case is first class. If this sounds like a combination you'd like - give one a try - you won't regret it.

Excellent guitar!

By Michael

from East Canton, Ohio

I knew that when Billy Corgan put his name on a Fender guitar, it would be a great instrument. Corgan is obsessive when it comes to guitars (He used over forty different guitars to record Siamese Dream's Soma!), so I knew that a guitar built to his specifications would be perfect, for any style of play. I used to be a huge fan of the old Eric Clapton Signature Series Stratocaster, back when Fender used Gold Lace Sensors. I was also well aware that Corgan was a huge fan of Lace Sensors throughout his career. I was surprised that Corgan did not choose Lace Sensors for his own guitar, but I must say, I love the versatile tone in this guitar. I've been experimenting with all sorts of sounds and this guitar does not disappoint. I'm a huge fan of the hard tail design, with it's increased sustain and tuning stability. The finish on this guitar feels nice and looks great. I can't say enough good things about this guitar. I feel that I definitely got my money's worth. I'm going to enjoy playing this guitar for years to come. If you want versatility, great sound and a great looking Stratocaster, this is your instrument.

Love this guitar

By scott hamilton

from Chicago, IL

I was looking for an electric guitar. I have been playing acoustics for years. I sat in GC for a couple of hours playing Les Pauls. I saw this guitar in the same room and plugged it in on a whim. I immediately fell in love with the feel and the sound. So then I played a lot of other strats and kept coming back to this one. I have had it for a couple of months now and still love picking it up. This is a very nice guitar.
