Usually, you get reviews of a just bought instrument while the honeymoons phase is on, and sometimes those aren't too accurate due to buyers remorse, or over happiness in the instrument without long term usage.

MY MiM standard is now 6 yrs old and is just as playable, maybe more than when it was new. The neck is the DEAL on these guitars. I have multiple strats and this one is the only "import" yet plays better than it's American cousins by a long shot.

Mine has the rose neck and it is a thing of beauty play wise. The ceramic pickups aren't everyones taste, but they suit me just fine.

It's arctic white, now going yellow which I was surprised at, but I live in Hawaii and play outdoors alot.

I've checked out this guitar from stem to stern and have found no glaring construction faults or QC items, if it had them, they caught and corrected them.

I would recommend this to beginners, and pro's alike for a guitar that is not going to break the banks, plays and more importantly sounds as stratty as any other and at the present pre 2007 pricing, you cannot go wrong with this guitar.

Fit finish and craftmanship is no worse than my American made guitars, I do know that components are slightly less quality to meet price point, however, after countless hours of play, everything is solid, and tight. Simply a great guitar at a great price if you want a strat and aren't put off by it's origin.

This is a poor quality instrument due to fret buzz on several of the frets. Also the screws in the saddles used to adjust bridge height stick up so far they scratch your hands when doing palm mutes or muffling
the strings. This is obviously a design flaw during production. What find of people do they have in QA
at fender these days?

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        I love everything abou this guitar except for the ding and chip on the back of the lower horn. Guessing it was a UPS screw up. Was kinda upset but it wasn't worth send itack and hoping for an in damaged one weeks later. Didn't affect the sound or playability and you can't see it from the front. Other than that it is a sweet guitar and I recommend anyone getting one. Just might want to buy one in a store

              Brought this issue to Musicians Friend and was told this problem is common with rosewood fret boards. That is was a fungus growing in the wood. I couldn't understand how a brand new guitar could be inspected and leave the factory with a 14" streak. Was not happy with the response I got. And will not be ordering any more guitars online or any other equipment from Musicians Friend.
