I own it and love it.

By That Guy in the Valley.

from California

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I purchased mine Jan-14th-2007 and since then I can not put her down. The feel, the tones and the way it never goes out of tune. Fender did a great job on this baby. Got mine in Olympic white with a maple neck, classic. If you love to play 60's-70's rock and everything after this is the one! Limitless fun.

wel-built time machine

By PPGuitarist

from SC

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a few months back. immediately i fell in love with it because of the finish. olympic white, with a maple neck. sounds awesome, and it stays in tune perfectly. my only complaint is that the frets are too small, but then i realized that it was just true to the strats of the 70's. bending the strings is hard because of that, but it still has a great feel for when you crave playing classic rock. definitely worth the price. i play in a metal/hardcore band, but this guitar really takes me back to my roots.

Fender 70's Strat

By totally sweet

from Mesa, Az

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Wow! I have had this guitar for a year now and boy I'm impressed. It looks and sounds just like the real thing but at a way better value. If you plug it into a Marshall JCM 800 head and a 1960 AV cab you really capture the Jimi Hendrix. Great for live stuff, with the schaller tuners I have had no tuning issues what so ever. Really a great guitar for all styles. A great foundation for get to no how to use different tones. A Must Have.

Classic Series Quality

By DJ

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

The Fender Classic series guitars are Mexican made from really nice parts and have a look and feel a cut above the Standard and Deluxe series. This 70's Strat has an Ash body, the cool Fender 'F' tuners and a throaty set of Alnico pickups. The neck is just beautiful. Mine is the rosewood fretboard. It is the details that make these reissues so appealing, and the playability follows naturally.

What a good guitar!

By JimiHendrixReincarnation

from Glendale, WI

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for a couple of months and boy am I satisfied. The sound is unamaginable. The fretboard feels great on my fingers, and you can bend so easily on it. This guitar a great guitar. I am definately satisfied with this. It sounds great on my Marshall MG100DFX. It is good for pretty much any style of music. The tones are so good. You can really tell the difference with this guitar. I would highly recommend this guitar.

great

By mchngun

from va

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I bought mine a few days ago and have not put it down. I have a les paul but I find that the necks on strats fit my hand better. The action is easy and bending is much easier on this than on my LP. Sounds beautiful. Nice crunch. I would recommend putting another 2 springs in the back to pull the bridge to the body. G string rattles a bit so I need to adjust the factory setting some more. All in all a beautiful guitar that won't break your wallet that sounds great. Highly recommended.

Perfect Guitar

By TubbyStrat6803

from N. Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have been playing this guitar for a long time now. I changed the original factory set-up to accomodate my .12's strings. The sound and tone is unbeileveable. The quality is great! I have never played another guitar that feels so good to my fingers. I have been using this guitar as my main guitar for the last 6 months. I recomend this guitar to all.

By Max

from long island, New York

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

First off I am a fender player I have my strat a tele and a musicmaster. I love strats but I do not love the Polyurethane finish. it makes the neck feel really weird. The guitar sounds great tho im considering upgrading to dimarzio pickups but great guitar and maybe changing the neck.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the 70's Strat RI

By The Public Image

from Manchester, NH

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I acquired my 70's Strat RI (Olympic white with rosewood fretboard) used in a trade for a CIJ Jaguar. The Jag was a nice instrument, and I loved the shape of the neck; however, my main guitar is an 01 USA Telecaster, and the short scale and shrill pickup configuration sent me looking elsewhere after 2 years. While I honestly preferred the Jag's vibrato system to that of the Strat, I knew this guitar was going to be right for me the instant I touched it. I've harbored a prejudice against Fender's MIM products for years now because they always seemed to be subpar products with cheap parts, but this instrument has made me realize that either I was dead wrong, or the Mexican plant has really stepped up their game lately. The feel of the U-shaped neck is silky-smooth, despite the fact that the previous owner didn't take very good care of the instrument. (I would, however, recommend putting a little oil on the string trees and using some sort of lubricant on the nut.) I've heard complaints about the CBS-era 3-bolt necks being less than sturdy, but I've had absolutely none of the reported intonation issues after working with a tech to set the guitar up properly. The bent-steel saddles give the guitar an unusual amount of sustain, making it easy to induce and control feedback. I'm VERY pleased with the versatile tones I can get from the stock pickups. The neck pu'p is thick and bassy, the middle combinations are classic "quacky" sounds, and the one by the bridge conjures that classic Fender spank. The bridge pickup is actually my favorite, as it really shines with an overdriven tube amp and a delay pedal! I very rarely use any other setting. My rig at this point consists of a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 1x12 combo and several effects pedals (including a TS9 overdrive, a Line 6 Echo Park, a Boss DD-3 delay, and an MXR MicroAmp boost). The 70's Strat RI was a perfect addition to my setup, and sadly, my USA-made Tele has started gathering a little dust.

Nothing special

By Languedoc

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I just bought this guitar, and boy let me tell you, these reviews are misleading. The guitar is nice and all, but it is definetly nothing special/not worth the money IMO.
