Bought this for the color...

Comments about Fender Limited Edition Standard Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

Real quick on the quality of Fender MIM guitars... excellent for the money. I won't waste time on that topic because most know that already. My two cents on this guitar have to do with its color. I bought this because I thought it was actually the "Surf" pearl. It says "Sea Foam" pearl but the pictures look like the surf version we've seen lately on other strats and teles. When it arrived, I realized it was indeed something new. It wasn't as green as the actual surf pearl guitars or as the pictures show. It's definitely slightly more bluish but holy smokes what a gorgeous color it is. Because I had my heart set on this "surf" pearl color, I went and bought the Elite Strat in surf pearl and I like it but side by side now, I hate to say I may like the sea foam pearl better! What to do? Pictures attached. If color is your thing on this particular guitar, hopefully this review helped you decide.

    Comments about Fender Limited Edition Standard Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    I was told that Fender pays more attention to these "Special Edition" runs. Maybe so. I can tell you that this Seafoam Green Pearl is put together very well. The fret job is on par with my 91' Strat Plus. The neck has an excellent Satin finish. Smooth fret ends. Paint is excellent. Fit is excellent. Pickups are pretty good too. I prefer Texas Specials in my strats but I don't feel the need to replace these stock pickups. they have a good Strat tone unlike a few other Mexico strats I have from a few years ago. If Fender would pay this much attention to all of their Mexico line I would never consider another US model.

    Comments about Fender Limited Edition Standard Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    I received this guitar as a gift from a good friend. I've owned many guitars, but this is my very first Fender Stratocaster. When it first came into my possession, I polished the frets, added new strings, intonated & adjusted the action, as is customary. Plays like nobody's business! I absolutely ADORE this guitar! Can't put it down. Don't want to. I've watched a few YouTube tutorials on how to keep your Strat in tune & to my delight, I've had absolutely no problems! What an incredible gift...
    Won't break the bank, either. I'm amazed, & satisfied.

      Comments about Fender Limited Edition Standard Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

      I'd also go review the standard MIM strat reviews as well, as the guitars are basically identical. Plays just as great if not better than the standard MIM strats- this one is the most beautiful finish in my opinion.

      The standard pickups are wonderful, but I will likely end up switching them out with some fender custom pickups down the road, but I'm not in any rush. Generally speaking, I believe that these MIM strats are one of the best "bang for your buck" guitar buys on the market right now. It even comes with a little "fender limited" print on the headstock- neat little perk :p -- Highly recommend!

                  This is my first legitimate electric guitar (I bought a cheesy, inexpensive Yamaha electric in college). It has a nice feel and sound. I love the maple neck, and the sea foam green looks better in person. I think it's perfect for my skill level, and it's a guitar I can enjoy as I improve my playing.

                    I'm giving it 5 stars because I'm generally pretty understanding. Everything about this guitar is great. Feel, looks, sound, it's all great. Once the strings were broken in it started staying in tune very well. Two things I notice though were that 1. There seemed to be some sort of chipping or overspray on the body just under the neck. Again I'm not picky so it doesn't bother me too much. And 2. The strings were rusty and dead. But who uses the stock strings anyways. The only two problems I found that don't bother me too much. Other wise a perfect guitar with great feel and a beautiful color.

                    Exactly as expected. Quick ship, perfect new condition. Didn't find any allen wrenches in the package but oh well. This guitar came without a case but that was as advertised and it was shipped safely. Great deal. Would definitely buy from again. Great color, love the pearlized version of this green.

                    I love this guitar! The Sea Foam Pearl finish is unique and flawless and the maple fingerboard is smooth and fast. It plays well, stays in tune and with the right settings it's great for any genre you want to play with it. I don't need to spend a lot of $$ on an American Standard or Custom Shop guitar. This MIM Strat is fine for everything I do.
