      Comments about Fender FSR Standard Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard:

      First of all a big thank you to Musician's Friend for the excellent customer service regarding this purchase/return. Now throughout the years i have always held the opinion that MIM Fenders were either hit or miss and this guitar was a BIG swing and a miss batter! Upon inboxing i found the finish workmanship and neck to body fitment to be excellent however this is where it ended............
      The set up was the worst i've ever seen, it was as if a 6 year old had set it up. The strings were 1/4" to 1/2"
      above a slightly bowed neck, the bridge was installed incorrectly, the bridge height screws were way too long and all the same length (which is incorrect as they should be staggered),and intonation was off on all
      6 strings. After setting the guitar up i then found the neck unplayable beyond the 12th fret and the neck pick up was microphonic. I then unplugged the unit, cleaned it and reboxed for return shipment. To be continued...............

          A headache, that is. I have and will continue to purchase from Musician's Friend. They answer their phones and answer your questions. This Fender Special Run Standard Stratocaster in 3-color Sunburst is a great looking, well-balanced and warm sounding guitar. As FipFlop mentions, the pickup selector is indeed 5-way, so throw it in the quack at #4 and listen to the woody tone. I dig it and it alone warrants purchasing this guitar. I installed direct drop-in Fender locking tuners. String changes are now a breeze and because they are staggered posts, I skip the string tree. As I just MUCH prefer a hardtail setup, a piece of wood on both sides of the tremolo block provide the proper bridge setup height (I do not let the bridge lay down on the body of the guitar/finish). You can change strings and tunings and the bridge stays locked in place. Easily reversible. The MF picture is correct, the plastic bits are parchment (including the back cover) and the pickguard is brown pearloid. I have purchased from other online sources in the past and have discontinued that practice. I buy from Musician's Friend.

          Great guitar

          Comments about Fender FSR Standard Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard:

          Great Mexican Strat. Love the finish and pickgard, reminds me of the classic Jazzmaster's look. It's actually a 5 way switch, not a 3 way. I prefer the 5 way, so no prob. I've played on much more expensive Strats and as amazing as they've been, I just could never go wrong with any Fender Strat really. They're all great, they just get more epic with price. I love this guitar. The tone and action are on point, stays in tune. Had it a week now and its holding up perfectly. Love it. I should have made the plunge much sooner.

            Comments about Fender FSR Standard Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard:

            First of all a big shout out to MF for the great customer service,16 yrs and i've never been disappointed!
            Now for the second FSR. As with the first one i received the finish workmanship and neck to body fitment
            was excellent. This time the bridge was installed correctly however the height adjustment screws were the
            same (too long and not staggered). Set up was ok this time.The neck was straight right out of the box and it is smooth with good run out and fall off. The polished headstock is a nice touch. After setting the action i plugged in. Intonation was right on and i feel the mim pups on this guitar are above average. I found that a slight adjustment to the neck and middle pups brought out more tone from them. Also there is complete silence from the controls when in use, no snap or crackle when switching pu positons, changing volume ect. The tortoiseshell pick guard and creme pu covers and knobs add a rich look to this guitar.
            In closing if you are on a budget and want a handsome strat this is the one to buy but keep your expectations low as it is a MIM.

                Again thanks to Musicians Friend, great guitar at a great price and shipped fast. I placed the order on Memorial day, two days later she was here. Set up nearly perfectly, intonated and tuned down a half step. The neck is incredible, framing square straight with zero fret buzz, nut slotted exactly right. Fit and finish are excellent. Clear select maple neck with 3 piece alder body, grain matched so closely it looks like a solid body. Beautiful clean stratocaster tones from the pups and controls. Only thing I've changed so far are the strings, D'Addario nickel 11's. Other than that this baby's staying stock. Again many thanks to Musicians Friend. Have a good one!

                Many thanks to Musicians Friend for shipping a great guitar at a great price. Ordered on May 29th, two days later I was plugged in and playing.

                  I bought this guitar as a base strat to build. I was going to add a loaded pick guard, and a couple springs to stiffen the whammy. Instead I hard tailed it and loved it. I never added the pick guard, and it became my favorite practice guitar. the finish blew me away. Looks way better in person.
