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.

When I received the guitar, I was disappointed to find some indentions in the body under the paint, and what looks like a knot that goes all the way through the maple neck from front to back. Has a couple of sharp fret ends that didn't get filed as well. I've had cheaper Epiphones and Yamahas that had nicer finish quality. Overall, it's a decent guitar, I suppose, but I expected better build quality on a Fender. If I had it to do over, I'd save up more money and buy an American Standard Strat at a local music store where I can see and try it first.

    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!
