    Shipped Wrong Guitar Grandson's Birthday

      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!!!

                  Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

                  This guitar is great! Fender through and through, minus the pickups. I got a special edition MIM Strat, and I must say, I love it. Although I prefer the American made strats, the Mexican ones are stil phenomenal. It really is kind of hard to get a bad strat(unless it's a Squire). I am definitely going to change the pickups though, because the neck pickup gives off quite a bit of static when you turn the tone up, the middle pickup is really quiet, and I mean REALLY quiet, and the humbucker is harsh on the ears. Also, you do have to intonate the strings a little bit. If you like the classic strat sound, get the standard SSS, not the humbucker. I learned my lesson on that one. I'm going to change out the pickups with '69 vintage custom pickups. In conclusion, this is an amazing guitar with great action and a smooth feel without any buzzing frets.

                    For the money this guitar is great! I got the lake placid blue color. It looks great and sounds even better. I play mostly alternative rock, this guitar will be perfect for that genre. I'm very happy with my order, and musicians friend! This Fender rocks.

                      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

                      About a week ago my wife's grandma sold her house and split the money up with her kids and grandkids. With my portion of the funds, I wanted a new guitar. My previous guitar was a Squier Tele Custom. I was looking to get the Squier 50's Vibe Strat. Ive often payed them and it had everything I wanted in a guitar and at a great price. When I got to the store my wife suggested I get a real Fender instead of a Squier (I wasn't gonna argue that) and so I saw this guitar. It wasn't too much more than the 50's Vibe.

                      The quality is outstanding. I got the brown sunburst with the maple neck. I was looking for a SSS strat, but I like a little distortion and I thought the humbucker wouldn't hurt. I was already used to the neck because it is pretty similar to my Tele, however this neck has an awesome finish and the back is so soft and smooth. No fret buzz or problems anywhere on the neck.

                      When I got to an amp at home, I used a small GDec amp that came with my brothers Squier Strat combo thing. I was surprised at the amp itself. The sound of the guitar was just like I wanted. It has those classic Strat tones I was looking for but can also handle some distortion. I used to own a strat and the pickups buzzed alot, with this guitar they don't buzz at all even with high gain. The tremolo is nice, and stays in tune pretty well except for the D string, so I just widened the nut slot for the D and its perfect.

                      Overall, I would recommend this guitar to anyone, even if you are new or experienced. its a very affordable Fender with the same Quality as American Strats I've played.
