This Fender guitar begs and begs for you to play it. The neck and the pickups are all on point. Action is especially butter smooth. You'll start exploring frets you never normally touch. You can play blues. You can play metal. I know, I do both. And I was always a humbucker guy before this guitar. I can only imagine what a nicer amp than mine would sound like.

I know this is a MIM strat and a lot of people look down their noses at it. But look, every time I pick up this guitar, it puts a smile on my face and I want to play MORE and MORE. And this is coming from someone who isn't even very good anymore after losing touch with the guitar in college.

The black on black with cream hardware looks amazing. I feel like this guitar is 30 years older than it is, because it looks that classic. I was NEVER a black guitar guy until I saw this. I prefer'd sea foam greens and sunburts and that kinda thing. Until I met "The One" - this guitar It just feels like something you'd see slung around a guitar god from the 60s shoulder. And that feeling rubs off on you as you play it.

If you can't tell by now, I love this guitar. I've owned it for 5 years and haven't bought a single guitar in that meantime. I've owned a vintage 70s guitars, Signature Artist Guitars By Fender like The Tom Delonge, Nothing has captivated me (yet) like this black on black/cream Fender.

I just could not get the tone high enough to get the sound I wanted. Love the look has but sometimes I feel like I am playing in a cave with echo I cant stop with the knobs. Wanted to dial up the tone like my old guitar and get a clean sound with not much distortion. Any Advice?

Great guitar for the money

Comments about Fender Special Edition Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar and a true value when compared with other choices in the $500. - $700. price range. Over the last 25 or 30 years I have owned American Strat's and Tele's and various MIM Fenders. Somehow they were all traded for other guitars. I visited my local G.C. over the Black Friday Weekend and played a few electric guitars. I was really surprised at the quality of new MIM Strat's after I played a few. Yes, this guitar is made in Mexico and not Cali but the Mexico factory is obviously producing really good stuff these days The neck and fret work are perfect, the pickups are pretty darn good and the thing just felt and played great ... Plus, it looks cool. It was on sale, I had a coupon, so I bought it. I took it home, changed strings to 10s, tweaked the truss rod and have been playing it every day since. This guitar is a home run. I was looking for a Fender at a price that wouldn't break the bank and I found it with this Strat. If you haven't played a Mexican Stratocaster in a few years, beware; If you try one, you will buy one too.

      Comments about Fender Special Edition Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      WOW!! I cannot believe I lucked out and picked this guitar. I was looking for strats in the $500-$700 range and happened to stumble upon this guitar. I have had it for a year now and it never really gets old. The quality is amazing and I feel like a better guitarist because I play it all the time! If you are looking for a strat, please look at this one first... you wont be disappointed.

                  Comments about Fender Special Edition Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                  After playing all of the stratocasters in my local guitar center I wasn't very satisfied with the looks, feel, or condition of any of them aside from the $1,000+ priced ones, And I wasn't looking to spend any more than $600-700 so after seeing all of the great reviews on this one I ordered it. This guitar plays like butter and looks better than most American strats! The pickups sound great distorted or clean, The neck and fretwork are perfect, The action was perfect right out of the box, And it stays in tune even with strings that have barely been broken in. If you are looking to buy a strat that plays exactly like an American for half the price, Buy this one it will be the best decision you ever made.
