This fit and finish of this ax is excellent, flawless! The features certainly contribute to it's playability and quality. The S1 switch adds additional creativity and the neck and action is nothing short of fast. The 6105 frets are the icing on the cake. This limited run is a collector.
Our gazes locked from across Guitar Center. The hair on the back of my neck stood on end. You beckoned me - called me - and I floated across the room and you fell into my arms! I took you home with me and provided you with all the best - new strings, a complete cleaning setup and waxing with only the finest micro fiber. You told me you loved me. You weren't even jealous of my Giffin! Then - you kicked me out of the house and moved in with the drummer... It was and is a true love story. The guitar plays and sounds great, and the S1 provides alternatives that are unique. Very snappy lookin', too! As usual, I felt the documentation too limited and generic, but that is a minor complaint. I forgive you! Love, Funky Tut...
I spotted one of these in the Tacoma,WA store. A week later it was mine. I traded in my old workhorse Vandenberg to get it. The Ice Blue metallic finish stands out head and shoulders over all the red, black, and dark blue finishes on the wall. Workmanship is outstanding. All I did is put on D'Addario 10s and lower the action a touch. The S-1 switching seems to have a more pronounced effect on a SSS configuration. I have HSS S-1 as well. Could be just me but the SSS actually sound better then the HSS. This is a FSR but don't buy it to collect. It would be a shame to just sit in the case. The pop in arm is superior to the screw in type. It stays where you put it. The two point system and locking tuners are the way to go. Why they still make the 6 screw version- i don't know. I have two beefs. It should have come with an LSR nut and cool tweed case.
Picked one of these up over the weekend at the Guitar Center in La Mesa, CA. They had one in stock. Was eyeing it from the minute I walked into the store. Once I pulled it off the wall, it was "game on". There were several people that tried to get it from me while I was trying it out, but I never left it out of my hands. Plays great, sounds amazing, AND looks like a million bucks. If you like Strats, you gotta get one of these!
