    Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

    I own both Gibsons and Fender guitars I have a couple of American Standards that are great... Yes, they are a little bit better, but no way that this is sinply a begginers guitar. If it had better electronics, like the fat 50's pickups you get with the 1,300 dlls model it wouod be a perfect guitar, but still sounds tremendous... Those people that say fret buzz, weak sound, probably have never owned a strat before... Strats have a more vintage si gle coils style output, definitely not as strong as a humbucker guitar...

    I gotta tell ya... I wish I had bought 2 Made in Mexico Fenders than 1 American Standard.... I dare anybody to notice the difference in apparience, or the difference in playeability in a blindfold test.... this is the real deal!!!
    Same quality control and specs as any other fender guitar... It's just made in Mexico and trust me, the factory in Corona Ca. Is filled with Mexican workers anyways....

    American has slightly better elecronics , that are easily upgradeable ... Get this guitar!!! You will not regret it.... If you've never owned a strat before and buy a 1,300 american standard you might regret it.... Only for people that know what comes with owning a strat...

      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

      I use this to practice and play along with backing tracks. Sounds great through headphones of an amp. Occasional fret buzz you can hear acoustically but not electronically - could just be my playing.

      Great craftsmanship. The color combo, Lake Placid Blue with Rosewood fretboard, is not something you see all the time.

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        I love the satin neck and feel. Frets are just right. Best of all I can make barre chords with ease. Great balance and easy to play. What more can you ask for.
        Classic strat sound on the pickups, I never use a Trem so I don't know how that affects tuning.
        Great guitar, great price. Thank you Guitar Center Greensboro.

        Good starting platform.

        By john

        from Ventura, Ca.

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        I must admit, I bought this with the intention of doing a bunch of modification. The Lake Placid blue is just an amazing color but I never see it in stores so I had to special order it. The first one came in with a big gouge in the finish, sent it back, the second one was OK. I played the stock setup for about a half hour, the electronics are not horrible but certainly not pro quality. I replaced the pickups with Seymour Duncan vintage alnico's, junked the white pick guard for a black pearl one and eliminated one of the tone knobs so now it has one volume and one tone, the top knob on strats always gets in my way when playing and I really like this change. Fender doesn't seem to do any setup these days, the truss rod wasn't even snugged down, just left loose. The action and intonation were in the ballpark but needed work. I had a pro setup done and now it's a great guitar, looks way better with the black pick guard. I've seen guys play these in stock condition and sound good, I just wanted to try out these mods and I must say, it worked better than I expected.

        Great for Beginners

        By Christian Nicely

        from Truckee CA

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        I have been playing guitar for 8 years. I hav owned this guitar since 2004. Overall, this is a good guitar. Neck feels really nice and fast with the rosewood. It doesn't stay in tune very well. My strap peg stripped and had to be replaced with a longer bolt. The pickups are a little weak. My tone and volume knobs stripped out and had to be replaced. Good guitar. Not recommended for an advanced guitar player. Recommended for a beginner.

        Sounds great

        By William Carson

        from Avon, IN.

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        Just bought the 2012 Mex Strat and it sounds great. Very nice sound for the money. The standard Strat handles good, even for my slightly small hands. I had an old used Squire so this sounds like a dream. I am 66 years young and learning to play the Blues. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone wanting a great sound, without paying a high price for a American made Strat. Like I read in another comment you could always change out the pickups. I would not recommend changing out the pickups, sounds well enough to me.

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        I purchased a used Made in Mexico strat from 2002. And I was blown away. I have always played shred guitars like Jackson,Esp, Ibanez ect. but I am now a fender purist. I switched out the bridge pickup with a JB junior and that took care of the feedback you get when using high gain. I play

        New Strats Rock!!

        By Tyrone Lewis

        from Hyattsville, MD

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        OK. To cut to the chase, have had numerous Strats over the years. Several Mexican ones (mostly from the 90's), an American Standard, even a Korean and Japanese one. Was looking for "that sound". Many chase it, but few find it. Long story short, purchased my most recent one, a 2010 Mexican Strat, did not even play it prior, and am shocked at how great it sounds! Had the notion that I was going to change out the pickups, must have gotten a good one from the batch! Has such great sound, that is usable! And, the playability is outstanding! This one is the Strat I have been looking for! This new crop is the best!

        Sweeeeeet!

        By Michael C

        from E Bridgewater, MA

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        Ive had my MIM Strat for four years. I bought it used, and I haven't looked back! The neck is very comfortable and easy to play, especially on the rosewood fretboard. Provides that classic strat sound that everyone looks for in a SSS guitar. The guitar is very light, and stays in tune very well. You can achieve sounds very close to that of Hendrix all the way to good ol'e SRV. I hear some complaints about the hum from the pickups, but the 2 and 4 positions cancel that very much. Some may want to change the pickups for their taste, but mine seem very nice just as is. Play before you buy to make sure (maple and rosewood ARE different). Beginners and seasoned pros alike, you simply cannot go wrong with the Stratocaster!
