great guitar

By Paul

from eureka, mo.

Comments about Fender American Special Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have two 1988 strats this American special with maple neck put to rest any worries about the quality of the new strats. One of my 88 strats has the E4 neck and I like the Specials neck better. The Texas specials are so good that I'm consiering chaning my 88's to texas specials.

The Texas Special pickups sound amazing - they are warm and powerful. I like my Standard Strat, but I love this American Special!
