I got one of these 60th anniversary floyd rose strats, and it's pretty unbelievable. I thought that with the addition of the floyd rose, the tone would become even more dry and dull when compared with my standard strat. But I was surprised. Right out of the box, it was set up and ready to go. I plugged it in my tube amp and it was really warm and and a lot crunchier than my standard mexi strat. All of the pickups are well balanced and sound great. It's sort of in between my standard and my les paul. it's not a "metal" guitar in my opinion. If you want something with a fast neck, you should try a jackson or ibanez. But this thing is great for more classic rock sounds. Great blend of crunch and bite.But the great thing about this guitar, aside from it's distinct tone, is the double locking original floyd rose. One allen key is all you need. You lock the string into the bridge, tune it up at the head stock, lock it up, and fine tune it a little bit more (make sure you stretch your strings a bit so they don't unwind too much if they're new). It stays in tune really well. I play in a dropped C tunning and I was surprised at just how well it didn't go out of tune. hardly any.Why I didn't give this guitar that many stars only because that the body isn't routed for pulling the floyd rose into the body. You can only pull back until it touches the body. I'm told that this is to keep it in tune better. Van halen is also well known for using this type of setup on his strats. I just loosened the spring claw and set it up so the tremolo was floating more at the back. It's even got a micro tilt factory installed so can change the neck angle in seconds. Now I can rock it back and forth without really worrying about hitting the body of the guitar. I just can't divebomb it all the way as it comes stock. But any way you set it up, i'm sure you'll find one that suits you. very versatile strat. I easily favor it over my standard strat just because the tone alone. Plus the double locking bridge. Somehow, it gets an even better sound, in my opinion.

I brogth this guitar and as soon as I open it and start playing it I return it.You can't pull the floyd rose. Thats bad. The body was very light; if you hit it it sound like a hollow guitar. Those pickups are the worst I have heard. Bad quality.

Most versatile strat

By Rocker-M5-q6

from Dallas

See all my reviews

This is the most versatile guitar that I own. Since the Floyd is bomb-only it never goes out of tune, even when breaking a string. I play in various blues and rock/metal bands and this is the only guitar that does it all well. This guitar works great for metal.My only complaint is that the pickups are kinda plain, the neck and middle don't have quite the character of a vintage strat and the bridge could be nastier. Of course, trying different pickups is half the fun if you ask me.

THE ONLYGUITAR THAT MATTERS

By The Saint-QYVk9

from I-Town, Flavoland

This is one of the Best Guitars I have ever owned. And I have owned quite a few U.S.A's and customs... and would put this one up against a USA strat anyday. My floyd is dropped to the body. Very rarely goes outta tune. Intonation is spot on... every time. It is kinda heavy... The bridge pickup SCREAMS !!! The Middle and neck go from chirpy to just fat smoothe and buttery...Enough said... I bought to record a specific project and it did the job better than even I thought it would... well well pleased....

Best fender i

By Miles B

from Senoia, GA

I play this guitar every Wednesday at my church South metro ministries and this thing rocks out!!! The only problem i had with it was when some dipstick took it and took the 2 screws in the back of the neck out and all three things at the nut came off and the thing wouldnt stay in tune but thats all taken care of. If your looking for a great piece of history or even something inexpensive so you can play like steve vai, then this is where its at!!!!

Nice Guitar for the Money!!

By Apollo_11

from sunrise, FL

I can't believe Fender created this beauty with Only 21 friggin frets..:( still sounds amazing , " mine has a really weird echoe sound" I Kinda like it alot ... The Floyd Rose on this guitar is pretty good "Original at least" same-one that comes in Eddie Van Halens signature :)) .... I'm very pleased with this one for now .... buy it , it's worth it

For the love of Floyd!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

An amazing, amazing combonation of the two!We have seen many Strat-like guitars with the Floyd Rose, but when we see a REAL strat with a Floyd, we just know...it's going to work! The quality of the instrument is obviously going to be amazing, I mean, Fender! Man that sums it all up for quality...Fender and Floyd...match made in heaven!

The Spirit of Strat

By Cygnus X-191

from St. Louis

See all my reviews

You know, Alex Lifeson and Eddie Van Halen had their strats decked out with Floyd Rose's way back in the late 70's and early 80's...its about time Fender caught up! I like it. This is no metal machine, but it does expand the expressionableness of the already versatile strat. Swap out the humbucker for a Gibson Burstbucker Pro....well YOU try it out. All in all, a GREAT deal for its price.
