OVERVIEW

A ferocious signature model for the longtime Iron Maiden guitarist.

Fender and Dave Murray have collaborated on yet another ferocious signature model for the longtime Iron Maiden guitarist. The Dave Murray California Series Stratocaster is inspired by Murray's longtime onstage go-to guitar, combining time-honored Strat tradition with the modern roar of three Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups, the fast feel of a compound-radius fingerboard, and the high-performance reliability of a Floyd Rose bridge and nut.

    Comments about Fender Dave Murray Signature HHH Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I have been rocking Schecter Damien (first love!), Schecter Hellraiser (7 strings), Gibson Explorer for last 9 years. Being a heavy/thrash metal player, I love each of them. But I also had this craving for a Fender. But their bridge pickups & single coils were always getting in my way ...lol Then I found this baby with SD pickups. Wow - Iron Maiden label is totally worth it. Beautiful finish, very comfortable neck, came with a very nice Fender bag. These days made in wherever literally means nothing to me. My both schecters were imports and stood the test of time better than my US made Explorer did. Anyways, this Fender was very playable right out of the box, the action is a tad higher than the Jackson (another Iron maiden guitarist, Adrian Smith, signature US model) I also bought around the same time lately. But this Fender is just as fast - as you'd expect from a Dave Murray signature model. I am not going change stock setup in near future. Riffs sound heavy, crispy, & punchy, solos sound soulful as they should. Clean sounds are absolutely amazing as well (I mostly use a Line 6 150W Spider IV for indoor jamming, jamming through a tube amp in an apartment is a distant dream for me lol)

    I have to give 5 star to the Jackson (even though it costs twice as much) though for its tone, versatility and super fast & comfortable neck. And this Fender deserves 10 stars from me for its tone, playability, look & the price tag . It's a steal for metal players who wants a Fender lol It's just not for IM fans, you can play modern metals on it without any worries. Very happy with this stat! Rock on.

      Comments about Fender Dave Murray Signature HHH Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      You can hear the quality of the pickups right from the first chord. This is a very hot rocking Strat. I bought the Mint model that was returned to Musicians Friend and saved 300. The guitar looks beautiful. I received this guitar just days before seeing Iron Maiden. Was surprise to see Dave using a Les Paul for the opening song., then he had the white version of this Strat and toward the end of the concert he had this Strat. I am sure his Strat is not made in Mexico and I am sure his sounds better, from the tone woods and what ever other methods they use to get high quality sound, but this would be about 90% of what that Strat sounds like. The pickups are the same. They may use different capacitors or volume or tone pots. This guitar is a hot rocking guitar, but if you are thinking of buying this you would already know that.The strings stay in tune, the floyd tremolo is blocked from going back. Those that like hard rock and metal will not be disappointed in this guitar.

      High quality instrument - right out of the box

      Comments about Fender Dave Murray Signature HHH Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I've only played the guitar a few hours thus far. I think this is a very high quality, well constructed, finished guitar - as good or better than any other guitar I've ever owned (including many other top USA-made guitars). "Out of the Box" the guitar was set up, in tune and played great - l liked it right away. Of course, the new strings quickly went out of tune (stretching), so I re-tuned and reset the Floyd Rose tremolo and it's remained fully in tune. While the pickups probably lack some of the vintage single coil spank, they still possess a wide range vintage and hard rock tones with zero noise. It's not just an Iron Maiden shredder's guitar - it's far more versatile.

      Personally, I'm not a fan of locking tremolo systems, but could not find a guitar that put together this package of tone / pickups, playability, and price with a non-locking system. That's a personal preference thing I suppose - not a complaint.

      What I do have a complaint about is that Fender did not include a hard case with this guitar. This is a 'hard case' caliber guitar, even if it's not 'USA Made'. If you're like me and will want to have case, plan on that additional expenditure (Yes, it has a lightly padded gig bag). It also does not have Schaller strap lock compatible strap buttons, like most of the Fenders I have owned in the past.

      Overall - a great instrument. If you're looking for a Superstrat or even a Stratocaster with fuller humbucking tonal capability, this is a great option that covers a lot of ground - vintage / classic / hard rock.
