Model Year: 1998
Price: $329.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Fender
Made in Mexico,She has a maple neck,it has a midnite
wine finish,The Amer. Standard Strat. sounded as if
were holding back,so I picked up another one,thinking
it was an Amer.,Man this one wailed and on command,blew
me away and it was 3-400 dollars cheaper
Since most guitar are desighned for right handed player;
playability is usally lacking, I found this to be the case with Gibsons,Ibenize,B.C. Rich,Washburns;But the Fender's I got all play like Fender's made them for ME!!
With Lefties in mind totally
Well its a Stratocaster and Like the Strats of yesteryear
it has some pick up noise when the toggle is in the odd positions.but theres tricks to get around that.
And for the styles I play,classic rock,blues,alternative;
its great.unless I'm recording I play straight to the amp
and it goes from clean(almost woody) to screamin" and all points between..
It's practically Rock'n Solid
