I bought this guitar in rootbeer flake a couple of months ago from the local music store. I absolutely love this guitar. Mexican strats get a bad rap, but this thing plays and sounds great and it needed minimal setup. The pictures on this site don't do this guitar justice. The rootbeer flake really looks good under the lights. I love this guitar.
I have the root beer flake model. It actually looks dark red in person and not as brown as I thought (thank god). It did have to be set up upon arrival but all guitars have to be set up. Mexican standard strats are every bit as good as the American models. You can either buy a mexican strat made my mexicans in mexico or you can buy an American strat made by mexicans in America...the only difference is price! These FSR flakes look so much better in person. I hope Fender doesn't make too any of them so mine will increase in value. Nothing wrong with these stock pickups either, I thought I would want to replace but these sound just fine.
I'm kinda a Fender nut to start with. I'm digging the Orange Flake. A guy i know who owns a guitar shop where i'm from has one. except for the fact that his is a vintage 70's and the paint job is a custom deal. Strats are typicaly very reliable, and work wounders for amost all styles. Get it if you can!!
You will be once you get your hands on this Mex. beauty. (MX series)I was somewhat dubious when Fender first released the Hybrid Standard Strat but this is my second one. I also own a Tob. Sunburst (MZ series) acquired a year ago used. I own several other guitars and the strat has become my favorite queeze. The kicker here is that I've also owned two standard US strats (circa '78 and '97) and actually didn't care for them. I generally keep guitars as a family once acquired, but not those. I honestly prefer the HSS. Now I can't say that I know the difference in quality between a Mex and US HSS, because I've not played a US model. I digress...The humbucker is what gives this more than its usual Fender jangly sound. Think of jangly... but with crunch.I agree with the other gentleman. Get one if you can. The flake from a short distance makes it almost look like a gold top. The flakes are not large as I thought they'd be.
