I love this guitar because you can use the neck or middle pickup with the right tone tweaking and get a smooth, warm, full classic sound - or kick the old five-way down to the special design Fender humbucker in the bridge position and dial-in everything from Zakk Wylde to Iron Maiden, even the awesome sound Pink Floyd uses in their leads - and it plays so nicely. I own many guitars, including other Fenders and this one, but when I want to get down and just scream, this is the one I plug in.
The guitar was setup perfectly, and performs even better. I replcaed the DH-1 hum and the single coil's with a DiMarzio Super Distrotion and SD Hot Rails. I'm not too thrilled with the hot rails, so I may take them out. They're better then the stock singles, but just not what I was looking for. The DiMarzio rocks. The case could be upgraded though, from the molded to the brief case style.
I bought this as a blem from musicians friend and was happy to see that i couldnt find anything wrong with it. I did find that I needed to adjust the bridge a bit, and also the body gets in the way when pulling back. Sounds and looks great though.
It sounds great and stays in tune well. The body gets in the way of the Floyd Rose when pulling back, but diving is not a problem.
It's got a good feel to it and I like the Floyd Rose on it but the body tends to get in the way when bending back.
My bassist's brother has this guitar. This guitar kicks so much butt, it isn't funny. The fretboard is very smooth, and it is very easy to play. The humbucker brings you a heavier sound for metallish sort, and the SC brings you eevry other tone you could ever want. The Floyd Rose Tremelo is, as usual, easy and compelling to shred and wail. The maple neck is unbelievably comfy, and you will love this guitar, whatever you play.
This guitar is excellent in very way. If you play styles like Van-Halen and other hard rock blues, this is the guitar for you. The meaty humbucker packs alot of high gain with a Marshall!
This guitar is exactly what I was looking for. Stays in tune, even with the Floyd, adjusted the trem, and action is great! Switched pickup to a Duncan Trembucker and it sounds like a champ! I've had it 2 months and it's breaking in perfectly. Zero flaws except for pickup swap, which isn't really a flaw, just personal taste! A true metal guitar, for the true metalhead!!
Ths guitar is so easy to play it's unreal. With the HSS you get a variety of sounds never seen before with the Strat. I LOVE this guitar and if you are looking at a Strat buy this American HSS, you will not regret it.
I bought it and it has awesome tone, it's very nicely made and it looks good.
