    I received the Sonic blue Strat in excellent condition. No set up was needed when it came out of the box and fit and finish was very good. This guitar sounds amazing! The photos do not do justice as to how good this guitar really looks.

        Absolute bargain of a guitar. The custom shop 69 pickups sound amazing. This guitar also plays like a dream with what to me seems to be the perfect neck. Also the finish is very nice. This guitar deserves a hard case. Don't be scared off by the made in Mexico tag. This guitar is my number 1 and I own made in USA strats. 9/10 overall.

          Comments about Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          I failed to mention in my original review that the fret profile appears to have been misrepresented. They are NOT true medium jumbo, but rather much closer the noticeably slimmer & lower vintage-class frets. The only down-side to the guitar in my opinion.

            Comments about Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            Had this model & color pegged from the start; can be a difficult guitar to find. The color (Sonic Blue) & the '69 pickup set were the clinchers for me. The Custom Shop/vintage influence didn't hurt, either. I'm super picky about weight - I won't take anything less than 8 lbs for a Strat, which can be a tall order. I completely lucked out here as I **thankfully** scored one at 8 lbs 2oz. Next investment is a decent hard case. This one is a total keeper.

            Sweet Player

            By Dana Hirschberg

            from Sacramento, CA

            Comments about Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            I was in the market for a new guitar and always wanted a Fender Strat. My preferred choice was a Stevie Ray Vaughan signature model but it was way out of my price range. After doing some research I came across this gem. Many of the specs are very similar to the SRV model and its more than 1/2 the cost. Guitar plays and feels great although it did need some tweaking upon getting it home which is expected. Note for those who aren't used to synchronized tremolo's it took a min to figure out how to keep the guitar in tune. Get it while they last. Rumor has it this model is being discontinued...

            Great guitar/Great deal

            By Jerry Berkstresser

            from Altoona, Pennsylvania

            Comments about Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            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

            By Brian

            from Florence SC

            Comments about Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            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.

            Comments about Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            I bought the sunburst last year. The pickups provide the true strat quack tone. The feel and playability is great. The pickups provide beautiful tones but are pretty noisy. I shielded the back of the pickguard and that helped. The 12" radius allows me to lower the action without fretting out past the 12th fret. Not a fan of the truss nut being at the bottom of the neck, but it poses no barriers to setting up the guitar. I grinded down a screwdriver to fit in there so I can make adjustments without taking the neck off. Also not a fan of vintage tuners. I put a few drops of lemon oil on the nut and that made tuning easier. Also my guitar tech said the bridge and neck pickup were accidentally swapped at production.
