These are super versatile with real mojo, proven performers with fast, low action and plenty of new guitar zing. Smooth and easy to play, the real thing with vintage vibe. These are fantastic axes. You will not believe the awesome Stratocaster tone they emulate. If you are looking for a real dinkum Strat at a USA made, entry level price point this is your best option by far. The Custom Shop Fat 50s p'ups are a huge asset for this guitar. They are the very essence of Strat tone.
