With the slight mod mentioned above I think this guitar sounds as good or better than some others I own that cost many times more.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $549.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
Like most Strat types you can have a maple or rosewood fingerboard. Mine's rosewood. Wanted rosewood because of the active midboost on board. I was going for an overall darker sound and this worked nicely.
Playability:
I kept breaking the E string until a switched to graphtech saddles. That fixed problem and seemed to enrich the tone even more.
Sound Quality:
Other than the graphtech saddles everything else,(pickups/electronics), are stock and I love the throaty voice of this ax.
Durability:
Very reliable

I helped a friend buy one of these used. He was just starting out on guitar and needed a utility instrument that would get the job done...this guitar fits the bill. The feel of the neck itself, apart from the action, seems better than on my '88 American Standard, yeah, the one that exploded. Fine for conventional rock and blues and as a student guitar.
Price: $230.00
Features:
Basic Strat features, nothing fancy with the addition of a 9v battery
Playability:
Same tight fretboard radius leading to an average action...nothing to write home about
Sound Quality:
Sounds okay for a Strat...the active element doesn't seem to get in the way or stand out too much
Durability:
About as durable as any Strat
