I've had this guitar for a few years and love it! It was my first Strat, and I think I made a great choice. Mine is white with black dots. The tone and sustain are great, and I'm a maple fretboard guy so the neck is great. The only modification I've made is shortening the tremolo arm. I'm happy with the whole set-up; I'm just toying with the idea of sticking some Lace Sensor pickups in there to see if that makes any difference. I love the bluesy tone that the guitar gets now, though, so I don't know if I'll actually switch pickups. If you like blues and you're looking for a good Strat, look no further!

Not quite Buddy

I'm sure buddy wanted his guitar to be affordablefor folks. However he still uses gold lace sensors. Which is key to his tone and sound.

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Lucked out and got one in new condition off the wall of a previous owner for a great price. I kept breaking the little-E strings (.011) so I swapped the bridge for a super-vee bladerunner. Whoa, good sounds turned into awesome sounds with nice sustain. So the E-string problem abated. But now I can hear that the pickups are a bit weak and narrow. In go a set of Fender Fat 50's. Uh, what, sound becomes fantastic, stunning player now. I'm very happy with this guitar. This guitar has a vibe when I'm playing it and it is all blues. In summary, good guitar stock, and better if you can get a used one... but a great player with a few mods.

          Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          Cool tribute to Buddy Guy. I have lots of fender guitars. This one is instant cool. Mine has high end pickups in it. It'll hang with any good Strat. Those dots are good fun and that's worth a few extra bucks, not to mention the alder body. Nothing cheap about this baby

          Fun little girl

          Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          I got this guitar from MF yesterday. IT was set up great right from the box. It sounds as good as any Strat I have with the exception of the hot rodded ones. I have 30 of them. I love the dots. The finish is flawless. The neck is perfect. The frets are dressed. The pickups more than deliver. Its a very nice addition to my guitar family. I will be gigging this little girl on St. Paddies Day. It is a very good value.

          Nothing Special

          Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          This is a good guitar but nothing special except for the polka dots compared to the MIM model so why pay more. But a Roadhouse or Jimmy Vaughn and at least you get better pickups. It is alot of money for polka Dots sorry Fender but no real value in the copy of a good guitar

          One great Strat

          By Strat-aholic

          from Little Rhody

          Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          This is a well made, great looking, easy playing guitar. I have the red and off white polka dot version. The spots are a nice vintage looking creamy white that doesn't show in the photos on the website. the neck feels great and the action is low and easy. The only drawback is the stock pickups are sort of flat sounding without much character. I swapped them out for a set of Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's pickups and now this is my favorite Strat.

          Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          I own this guitar since approximately 1 year. I bought it used and I've made some modifications on it (H&H pickup configuration, new saddles and scallop). Guess what; It sounds louder and greater than my American Strat (even unplugged). The sustain is incredible! I'd recommend to do some modifications to the electronics; the original pickups are a little bit noisy and sound too thin. Put great pickups on it and it'll be ready to rock!

          Excellent Value

          By TommyGuitars.com

          from Osaka, Japan

          Comments about Fender Artist Series Buddy Guy Polka Dot Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          When it comes to Polka Dot guitars, there are only two out there that come to mind: Buddy's Fender Strat and Vivian Campbell's Kramer Nightswan designed by Buddy Blaze of Texas. Makes me wonder which came first. In any case, Buddy's Fender plays like butter, however I think Vivian's Nightswan has about the lowest action that can be found on an electric guitar. Both are great quality. Tommy
