    Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

    I have had several Fender guitars over the years. This is by far the best. Can't knock the MIM. Quality is top notch and sound is great. Only minor adjustments needed. The modern c shaped neck is perfect. I've been playing for 30+ years and this is by far the best, most comfortable playing guitar I have owned.

      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

      I'm a drummer trying to re-learn guitar. This is the second MIM Strat I've owned. i sold the older one when I broke my wrist and had a had a plate in, I thought I had lost too much flexibility to ever master the instrument. Now that I'm retired I'm giving it another try. The one I just bought is identical to my previous one. Although I'm not an experienced player, I have re-wired, modified, and set up 4 or 5 Strats. The quality on this new one is exceptional.

          Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

          Right out of the box, this ax played and sounded like a dream! I do plan on taking her to my local luthier, but only because I play a 10 guage string and she came with 9ers on her. But as of yet, I just can't part with her! You can't go wrong with this guitar and for the money, one of the best purchases I have made in a while.
          To Bill, the sales rep I dealt with...I should be upset with you. As a semi semi retired player (read Church and very lucrative private gigs, I'm to old to fool with the bar scene anymore) I make my extra income with my acoustic 80% of the time. But I haven't picked up my old beater Yamaha nor my Ovation since this thing came. Thanks Bill, very professional, very polite, I will definitely deal with you and Musicians Friend again.

            The Guitar is a beautiful and a nice candy apple red that really catches the eye as soon as you take it out of the box. The Guitar played like a dream right out of the box with great playability and feel.

            It has a satisfying weight thats not too heavy and listening to the tone of the instrument makes you not want to put it down. I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to improving my guitar skills in the years to come.

              Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

              I am writing this in behalf of my grandson. We had a large birthday party for him and everyone watched while he opened the box that was suppose to be a black Fender Stratocaster. Unfortunately everyone felt bad for him, because the "wrong guitar" was shipped and was identical to the one he already had (telecaster). Although there was an error in shipping the wrong guitar, I must say that the returns/customer service department was absolutely phenomenal! They recognized the error, sent me a return shipping label immediately and shipped the correct Stratocaster guitar that same day. It arrived 4 days later and everyone was happy that this error was corrected so efficiently.

              My hat goes off to you, Cyia for providing me such wonderful customer service! Prior to my retirement in 2010, I worked in Banking in excess of 35 years, so recognize the importance of providing outstanding customer service, and Cyia certainly went out of her way to please me. Thank you Cyia for a job well done!

                  Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

                  Okay, out of the box this was, as my luthier neighbor said, "unplayable". Action sky high and a couple other issues he mentioned. Once he dialed it in for me, it has been fantastic. So I recommend getting a professional setup.

                  Neck is fast and easy to shred on, body is nice and light, strats are maybe the most comfortable guitars to play.

                  Sound is where I took off a star. The single coils give that strat quack. The hum bucker is nice and thick. But the two don't seem to go together well if that makes any sense. Switch to the hum bucker and it sounds like a completely different guitar. Not really in a good way, it's kind of jarring, especially the volume change as the hum bucker is MUCH louder.

                  Had it two years now and thanks to a proper setup I have only done one or two minor adjustments. It has played like a dream the entire time.

                      This is a great quality guitar for my son to learn on for a low price. He's had 2 other guitars and this one is his favorite. He plays rock and blues. Sounds great to me. But, the best part of getting this guitar was dealing with Musician Friend's customer service. They are professionals and make sure that you have a good buying experience. It came packaged well and perfectly in tune to play out of the box. Will change out strings later. For the cost of this guitar and the quality of the customer service, we give it 5 stars.

                      This is my first Fender, I have 22 years playing guitar and I used other brands. For the price this HSS has a great sound, nice body and color, and you can play any style with this guitar. Just one thing, needs 24 frets, but, I love it!!!
