It's everything a strat should be.American quality,Mexican made at half the price.
This guitars feel reminds me of an old 70's 3 bolt
I used to have.I love it.
I use it with my new cyber-twin,it sounds great
but sometimes it's noisy under lights.I'll probably
replace the pickups with fender red lase sensers.
I use it every night no problems with tuning.
I love it, absolutely can't get enough of it.

Gold hardware, great in Crimson Transparent, Shell red pickguard, Super fat strat Single Coil pickups.
Very manuverable and light making it great for onstage performances as well as home.
Great sounds for the blues guitarist or any other style. Deep or twangy, however you like it
