I recently purchased a Gretsch 5122 DC guitar. I love it. However, I felt incomplete without a Fender Stratocaster. I saw the FSR Standard. I knew I could pay more money for an American made Strat, but I took a chance on the FSR. I am not disappointed. I am very pleased with the overall workmanship. My only complaint is a very scratched pick guard; why, I do not know. It's only visible at an oblique angle. I am a low-intermediate skill guitar player. I do not play professionally. This is an excellent instrument for those of you at a similar skill level.
What a beautiful guitar! The action is great, the stock pick-ups, (which I will replace with the EMG David Gilmour set), are VERY good. Very comfortable to play and great sounding! I am THRILLED with my purchase of this axe! Thanks to my wife who let me buy it for my birthday!
White pickguard, fancy pu's and a rosewood board. Stuck 12's on her and she sings! This guitar is 100% strat, hands down the best deal out there for a REAL strat. Has never let me down in the year I have had her. I see myself growing old with this guitar! Will probably have to change frets a few years down the road otherwise it would be 5 stars all the way.
It has a nice finish that i like, but the neck is very uncomfortable. The wood is not very good on the neck. Im not a big fender fan, and i like gibsons more than anything, but thats just me. Plus its made in Mexico.
it's got Fender on the headstock, and it's a Fender....i played an ash Strat that was early '80's, and this is higher quality (seriously!) chunky tone right out of the box, and the price is less than i payed in the '80's....what's not to like? if ya wanna be a snob/braggart, this ain't your guitar..if you love what the Stratocaster is, there's no way to go wrong with this one!
If you are looking for that classic strat sound and feel this is a great guitar. Yeah its not the american strat but this one matches up real well. Great weight, balance, and playability. Stays in tune and has a great sound. I got the natural wood with rosewood fingerboard and dark pickguard and it looks awesome! Personally I've always preferred strats over other guitars so I guess I'm biased but oh well.
Of course, you could always spend a grand or so and go American, but for the budgeted musician, this is a great deal. Just got mine last night and I haven't slept for pickin this thing constantly. Great playability right outta the gate. Decent sound with that vintage one of a kind strat look! I'm satisfied. We'll see how she holds up through the years, though!! Best bang for the buck! I had been playing an Epiphone Les Paul....have too many complaints to mention. The main 2 are 1. Never stayed in tune (the tuning knobs were crooked too!) 2. Gave me a back ache after an hour or so cause of the weight. That's why I love my strat..perfect weight, always in tune even through runs of punishment i give it, and you can't beat the look. That's my opinion, take it for what it's worth! Happy picking everybody.
I picked it up one time and it sounded pretty good. It has a pretty good sound if you want to play rock songs and use distortion. It is ok without it, but if you arent playing rock, why are you even playing guitar? good buy.
I've only been playing for a couple years, but in those few years iv had numerous experiences with multiple guitars. Personally I can't stand fenders. The necks are ridiculously uncomfortable, and the pickups sound either very generic or twangy. The only way to get a decent strat is to by a USA made model and that is at least a grand. Then you get quality. But if you insists on buying a lower grade model this one isn't that bad. I would highly encourage you to buy an American strat or even a cheaper epi. Much better sound, playability, and looks(in my opinion). If your looking for a harder sound go ibanez.
