Exactly as the name implies this is a little bitty stratocaster. A 20 fret, 22.7' scale neck. Three single coil pickups. It's missing the whammy bar that all of the "bigger" guitars have.
Nice soft action and narrower neck make it easy for the little guys to enjoy learning to play. My seven year old loved it! It isn't going to play like a top of the line stratocaster, but it's also clear that this is a real guitar and not a toy.
For the money this sounds great. There isn't much to compare it to in it's price range, but it sounded as good as the squire stratocaster.
It's stood up to my seven year old! I had to look at several of them before I found one that didn't have finish flaws that even my kid thought obnoxious, but everything else checked out great.
