      Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I bought this Strat to eventually give it to my Grandson who was born this year 2014, so as he ages the guitar will also at the same time it is even named after him. It plays & sounds just as good or better than my 1979 strat and half as light.

        Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        Right to the point it is: This guitar out of the box was spot on perfect! Finish, neck, case intonation all 10's I have 10 strats and 3 tele's all american made bought over the last 20 years. I am very particular about my set ups and never let a factory set up stay as it was with out some tweeking. Tuned up and played for hours can't put this one down. The compound radius neck is better then I expected. The pickups are very bright but thats what the tone controls on the amp are for!I don't really know what an original 1954 strat pickup would have sounded like and I'm sure back in those years there were differences between each guitar because of how they were wound. I like the pick ups and I'm sure with todays standards each guitar will be very close to the original. Every strat that I own is different in some way sometimes just subtle and sometimes radical. Clean does not get any better then this again not a metal guitar or all out rocker but does averything in between. I only use overdrive and delay as effects as well as clean with light reverb. No buzz from the frets string gauge is what I like 9's again not everyones liking but you can change to 10's and readjust the spring trem. The color of the sunburst is eye catching. I even like the gold hardware. Pictures do not do this guitar justice. MF has been my go to store for just about all of my guitar purchases and the people on the help line know there stuff. I belive this will keeps it's value and is a wise investment. All though mine will get played, scratched, and used no closet queen here. Highley recommend. Played thru Vox AC30, Bogner 40, Fender 65 Twin 15, Fender Deluxe 900, Line 6 Bogner tube and Mesa Boogie Nomad 100 combo. Wow is all I can say! There is some heaven on earth. Keep up the great work Fender and thanks MF for a great deal!

          Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          There's nothing like a Strat or Tele but there are quality control problems with these models as there were with the 2006. Come on Fender, get it together. You made great strides over the years and should not ship necks with a hump above the 12th fret or cases that mash the strings into the frets or pick guards that aren't flush with the body etc. If there are more returns than there are items in stock that's sort of a red flag.

                The bright '54 pickups, and a compound radius neck with a great finish make for a nice Strat. I have a number of Strats and got this one because of the interesting combination of features. If you don't mind the more classic sound, this is a great player. I did a little set up work to change things around for the 10 top string set I use, but other than that, it was good as it came.

                  I wanted my first Fender to be an american strat. I couldn't pass on the extras this one had to offer, which actually made me pull the trigger now instead of later.

                  It exceeded my expectations. I also own a high end (humbucker) prs and they couldn't be more different in sound, feel, and look.
