Versatile and good sounding axe!

By GPMAN

from Nashville

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is an excellent value. The Pickups sound real good. The Duncan Pearly Gates plus is a really nice humbucking pickup. This is a great workingman's strat. Kudo's to Fender for offering this guitar.

Best all-around guitar for the money

By BT

from georgia

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Awesome guitar. Wanted a quality guitar, but didn't have the money for an American strat. After playing this thing though, who cares if its an MIM. Great sustain and same quality strat with better features/add-ons than you get with some more expensive models. I might not agree that it's really versatile (unless you add some effects/tweaks; i did and it sings!), but I would recommend this guitar to anyone who plays primarily rock blues, metal, hard rock, or wants something hot to build on. If possible, I would reccomend testing out the humbucker before buying though. It definitely sounds good for some, but if you dig that single coil sound more, the Roadhouse strat might work better with 3 texas single-coils. By the way, spring for the sunburst finish. It looks incredible with the tortoise pickguard.

Awesome Quality for MIM!

By Phatwon

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for about 2 weeks now, and it absolutely plays like a dream! The quality is almost as good as an American Series Strat. The pickups are excellent and handle overdrive very well. The Pearly Gates Plus Humbucker can really push amps well. The neck is smooth and straight and fits tightly into the neck pocket. The finish is clean, and the grain really shows through on my brown sunburst model. Play this guitar before making a purchase. I went to my local Guitar Center to try one of these out, and the Arctic White and Black models were not as nicely finished. I found the Brown Sunburst model to be the better guitar at my Guitar Center. Anyways, it's an awesome guitar for $600 because it plays and sounds just as great as a MIA Strat that costs twice as much. Play it, find one that you like, and then buy it!!

An Excellent Strat

By TheExiledTexan

from Baltimore, Maryland

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

The Fender Lonestar Strat is one of the best MIM strats on the market today. Loaded with Texas Special pickups (used on the much more expensive SRV model) and a Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker, the strat gives you that nice sparkle and grow that strats are known for, with the added potential to release crunchier riffs with the Pearly Gates. I bought this guitar as a "understudy," so to speak, for my more expensive guitars, such as an original '59 Les Paul and a custom '79 Strat, among others. Running head to head with the latter, the Lonestar strat held its own against my modified '79, a testament to the good work Fender did on this guitar. While many condemn the arctic white finish, I think it looks great overall! My only concern is that the tremolo has only three springs. Do yourself a favor and get two more. All in all this is an excellent instrument worthy of the Fender namesake.

Best of both worlds

By MIMbias

from GA

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

After owning this bad boy for a year now, I have nothing but good things to say about it's versatility and value. Comfortable neck, rich tone, and the best of both worlds in the pickups. With 2 texas single coils (same as the expensive SRV model) and a butt-kicking humbucker, this thing can put out what ever sound you want, from clean to heavy overdrive/distortion. My Blues Jr. might not want to play metal, but that humbucker just wants to get loud. I usually stick with the texas singles for a nice blues pop/surfy sound (which it can do better than some Americans), but it is so nice to have that extra crunch when I want it. This is my #1, and if I lost it, I'd surely buy another before Fender's prices go up yet again. If you have the money, then go ahead and buy both a strat and a gibson, but if you want the best of both worlds in one package for much, much less, then pick up a Lonestar.

just what i wanted

By santiago

from bogota

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I was thinking of buying a guitar to play rock and heavy metal , i saw many guitars, iba��+/-ez, epiphone, but i also wanted to play heavier rock, so the last guitar i imagined to buy was a strat. but after a while i saw this beautifull strat with everything i needed, the guitar comes with amazing texas special single coils, perfect for every kind of rock and blues, and the seymour duncan humbucker with the tone for heavy, and all into a strat, wich in my opinion is one of the best looking guitar you can get and its also the most comfortable guitar ever. i couldnt be happier about this guitar, fender made me a strat fan after playing this guitar, i hardly recomend it.... sorry if my english isnt good....

Top Notch

By playloud8888

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

An amazing guitar period. The low price only makes it more desirable. You can tell the pickups aren't the usual ones that come with MIM's, they sound really amazing. A must have for anyone.

Awesome Guitar!!!

By GHGuitar23

from Knoxville, Tn

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for almost two years. It has done almost anything I need it to do. Great blues guitar, clean or distorted, with the Texas Specials, and great rock guitar with the Pearly Gates in the bridge. You can get just about any tone you want out of this thing. One thing that I experimented with today was to flip the Pearly Gates and middle pickup upside down (the pickguard will not go back on if you flip the neck pickup). This trick seems to add more mid and low end, but not affect the top end too much, without making it muddy. Add a clean amp setting with your favorite distortion pedal and you get a creamy, warm distortion. Great all-around guitar that I would suggest to anyone.

Great Strat For A Low Price!

By sawyer

from Mississippi

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about two years ago. It is AWESOME! The humbuckers give it nice deep tone. But it can also get high if you need it too. I play a little bit of everything from blues and country to hard rock and metal. Its very versatile. It also stays in tune really good (I've had it tuned two steps down without any problems). The only problem is that the input likes to come loose. It's an easy fix, but it's still annoying. Other than that, its a great guitar with many sounds that you'll fall in love with instantly.

Very Good Entry Strat

By Jack Savidge

from Lindenwold, NJ

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I really love this guitar. After playing bass for a very long time and a little acoustic, I bought my first electric. I am very pleased with the sound of this guitar. The pickups are top notch. The only issue I have is with the set-up, I need to take it to a shop.

Country Swagger at a good Price

By Matt B

from Hollywood FL

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Before I owned this instrament I played an old Strat I picked up at a garge sale. When I was looking for a new guitar I was looking for ANYTHING BUT a strat. I looked at ESP,Epiphone, about every other brand and I think I was driving the staff crazy looking for a guitar. Then a few weeks later I succummed to an Artic White model. It was a revelation, I played all sorts of stuff on it and plugged it into 10 different amps to see if it wasn't just them. But even playing Shooter Gennings on a Mesa boogie, or RHCP on a Fender this strat held its attitude and responsiveness, it has been great for all playing tricks(even tapping). This thing has been great for the past few months I have owned it. It has what you need and with a Humbucking Punch to make people turn their heads and listen.

Great Guitar for Money

By Doug Dooley

from Friendswood, TX

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Big fan of ZZ Top, SRV, etc. blues rock music. Kudos to fender for making the lonestar for this. Pearly Gates plus has plenty of bite and Texas Specials sound very good thru my amp. Thanks to Clear Lake GC setup guy for taking care of fret buzz after putting new strings on. A 4 instead of 5 just because there are better strats out there but for mucho denero. The neck is fast and the guys at GC did great job helping me out. Came with a good soft gig bag.

Great Guitar, but, the manual is a joke

By JIM JAGER

from Kalamazoo, MI

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Gotta take a star away for having such a crummy manual. It is a generic Fender 20 pamplet which covers ALL (Fender)guitars and basses. With a $600 guitar (normal retail price) I would like something better, a manual specific to Strats AND the model that I bought. The manual does state that if I want more specifics on my model, I should visit thier web-site. Haven't done it yet, but I will. OK, the guitar: LOVE the sound, it was exactly what I was looking for: twangy yet mellow. I had been considering a hollowbody electric, to get that bluesy sound ala B.B. King and the likes, but my economic situation forced me to have another look at the more affordable Strats. I chose this one because of the rosewood fretboard, high quality pickups, and positive reviews, and I am extremely satisfied with the results.

Could not be happier

By JAMES RUPPE

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This guitar sounds amazing. Went to Guitar Center over Easter weekend to take advantage of %15 off special, I resisted the temptation to buy one of the standard MIM strats they had available for take home that day and opted to order this one online. Arrived in three days and in perfect condition. Excellent choice, just buy it you want be disappointed.
