Great Price, Great Quality

By nstrat01

from Denver, CO

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This guitar is fantastic. It is equipped with Seymour Duncan pickups and a birdseye maple neck. The pickups sound amazing and it is a beautiful guitar. It is very versatile when it comes to what it can play. The fact that it is Korean made does not seem to impact the quality. Overall, it is a great product for any style of music. However it does have some grounding issues. On some pickup selections there is a large hum. I have played it through a Frontman and a Roland and it has great sustain on both. The neck is very smooth and easy to move around on. The vibrato system also seems to be very good quality. However after using it the guitar is often out of tune. It is a great guitar and is great value for the cost.

Review of the Fender Lite Strat. (special edition)

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This Guitar 'Rocks'. I think the construction is excellent, USA made, nevermind, this Korean edition is constructed exceptionally well. It saves us on the assembly price tag and adds the features to make up for it. The sound of this guitar is amazing from lazy soft blues to mister speed demon on the frets metal! If you want your sustain to go on forever this it the baby. The Birdseye maple neck should be a standard for all discernible guitar players. Nice choice for the pickups too!! I own the natural ash model and you can see how the grain is perfectly centerd in the middle where the neck begins good job. ANY WAY just try it you'll like it.

Light Ash good for Light Touch

By Ciliberto

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I picked up one of these guitars last year. I was particularly drawn to the excellent fretboard -- the tone is really deep and immediate and the responsiveness to left-hand playing is excellent. The guitar has excellent sustain: whether this is due to the Seymour Duncan pickups or the light ash body, I do not know. I do notice a certain amount of plectrum noise in certain pickup positions.

Sleeper Guitar

By RockDaddy

from Lake Forest, CA

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Mid-priced Strat, Not much fanfare. Seems like everything about it would be middle of the road quality and soul. Not the case (Nor is there anything "lite" about it- mine is 8lbs.). Build quality is superb. Beautiful wood. Neck is REALLY comfortable. Yes, I did need to re-dress the frets, but nothing else needs adjustment, or better quality parts. SD pickups bring out the articulate Ash-Strat 3-D growl. Combined with my Super-Sonic, this guitar absolutely kicks the tone out best compared to most other Strats- I've played them all. For the price, it's a steal. The jimmie Vaughan is another sleeper model.

lite ash strat

By bob

from the u s of a

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

If you play blues and classic rock and things of that nature then get this guitar, it has the greatest fretboard ever. But if you play stuff like punk and emo, then get a guitar with humbuckers, the single coils on on this guitar cant handle certain power chords, its sick for solos though.

I love this guitar...

By Sweet Strat Fan

from San Bernardino, CA

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I went to my local Guitar Center to buy an actual Fender strat at a descent price range and explained the type of sound I was looking for and the sounds of some of the artists I try to emulate (Hendrix, SRV, John Mayer, etc.) and he brought this strat to my attention. He said the neck feels wonderful and the guitar has a "beefy" bluesy sound to go with it. Honestly, he was right. The neck does feel great and is even great to look at; birds-eye maple with abalone dot inlays. (The funny thing is I am more of the rosewood type.) The sound..."beefy" and definately bluesy, which I like. It has great tone and because of the Ash body the sustain is nice as well. There are a couple things that could be better though. There is some slight "buzzing" at certain pickup positions especially, when you play your bass strings higher on the neck. Also, this guitar detunes quite easily which can honestly get annoying (but in all fairness, most guitars with a tremolo will do the same without tuning locks). Overall, probably one of the best Strats you can get for this price range and I am very happy with my guitar. I love playing it and the way it feels in my hand. Wonderful to look at, "beefy" sound, great feel. Definately one to try out.

The Fender Light Ash Stratocaster

By Julius

from Voorschoten, The Nehterlands

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

The Fender Light Ash Stratocaster is a Korean made stratocaster with insane value for money. It features an awesome 22 fret birdseye maple neck and , as the name suggests, a lightweight ash body. The Seymour Duncan pickups are mainly geared towards blues, but will do other genres quite convincingly as well. I have used this guitar for gigs and it's very reliable.

Impossible to beat for the price

By davis224

from North Olmsted, Ohio

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

There is not guitar within several hundred $ that will come close to this, it plays beautiful, has amazing tone for blues and classic rock, and the pickups are fantastic. A little noisy, but the neck pickup is absolutely stunning. It does get out of tune easily, and my frets stick out on the (perfect) neck a little, but otherwise, there is no better strat out there for under $1,200.

Wonderful

By TwinReverb

from Florida Panhandle

Comments about Fender Special Edition Lite Ash Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I love this thing. First, I'm military, and I've been to South Korea. It's a very good country. This thing is made very well and I have no problems with mine. It's beautiful. It also sounds wonderful: single coil snap and very sensitive to playing technique. Swamp Ash sounds very alive and musical. Lots of sustain as well. Not as harshly bright as some stratocasters: the pickups are still bright and clear, but the Alnico II magnets have a softer high end, and less string pull. I'd buy one all over again. I love them!
