      Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I absolutely love this Guitar! It is really well worth the price you pay. I've played numerous higher price American made strats and this one definitely holds it's on. I bought this guitar with the intent of possible upgrading the pickups, but when it came in I plugged it up and immediately fell in love with the sound. Fantastic finish as well!

        Been playing for 33+ years and have owned many guitars. This is the best American-made Fender Strat for the money. Love playing this guitar. Plays great, sounds great. No problems what-so-ever. Buy this guitar if you get a chance.

          Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          I bought this to replace an American Standard Strat I had that someone wanted really bad. Personally I love the color and the satin finish. As with most any guitars you get, it did need a little set up, but not much. Out of the box I was getting some fret buzz and the intonation was off a little. It really didn't take long to set it up correctly though. I got this one to play with modding a little too. While I really do like everything about it stock I just want to play with modding some. Already have a leather pick guard on the way. The electronics and hardware are what you expect from an American Strat and I don't plan on changing any of that just yet. Maybe I'll try to come back a attach a photo after the new pick guard.

            Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar because it was a great deal. The feel when playing this guitar is like butter. Really smooth. It has a fast neck too. I replaced the stock pups whth Dimarzio Areas because I hate the 60 cycle hum of the stock pups, and replaced the saddles with Graphtecs. Other than that this thing is near perfect. The only complaint is that the trem hole is at a wierd angle is the arm is hard to screw in. The fit and finish is as good as it gets, no complaints, frets are smooth and not rough at all. All in all, great bang for the buck. If it ever got stolen, I'd get another.

              Bought this several weeks ago, it is hard to put it down. Tone is great, it really is. Set up right out of the box was almost perfect, took about a quarter turn on the truss rod adjustment, string height and intonation were spot on. I like the finish, a lot- but you do have to be careful, and make sure that any stand you use is ok for a nitro cellulose finish- many aren't.

                Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                A USA strat for this price is incredible, since new and used MIM Mexican strats are in a similar ballpark. I love the look, the build quality was superb, with a clean neck and no sharp frets.

                The sound is classic strat - the no-load tone pots are awesome for getting a pure sound. Every pickup offers a clean tone - no mud here. If money weren't an issue I'd still want an American Standard, but now I don't HAVE to have one because this is so good.

                The bonus is that it looks totally custom with the NITRO SATIN finish. Strongly recommend this, and you should call to see if there are any 'manager specials' to be had :)

                  Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                  First , I love how this guitar looks. It is in a class of its own with its special
                  "satin nitro" finish.
                  The pickups are typical
                  Strat sounding but the guitar has its own vibe perhaps because of the
                  "satin nitro" finish. The overall quality is excellent for a Strat in this price
                  range. The guitar came well set up from the factory.

                    Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                    The short version is...get it! When I first unpacked the guitar,(very well packed)my heart sank a bit. I was expecting a glossy finish, and it has sort of a woody flat finish. When I picked it up, if felt really good. I examined it, pushed on the strings and it all seemed fine. I put in the whammy bar, plugged it into my Fender Blues Jr amp..and wow! This guitar plays like it is alive. All of those Fender tones came roaring (or whispering) out at you! I spent my entire evening playing, plucking, chording, jamming and tapping this baby. The Fender Telecaster Deluxe has been my go to axe for years, but that may well change now. I have played a number of Strats in my time, and always wanted one. I am so glad I waited for this one. The price is right and the sound is exquisite! As others have mentioned, the setup right out of the box was near perfect. Heck, it was nearly in tune! Once I adjusted to the look, I really liked it! The weight is balanced and feels great. The neck is just near perfect for me. I should add that the included gig back is a really high quality one! The only thing wrong with the whole package is the gig bag did not have an over the shoulder carrying harness. I will double check the box and see if it got buriend and report back. So do yourself a favor and get this USA Strat. Once you play it, you may find yourself lost in the tones!!

                        Well like somebody also mentioned, I too waited quite a while to purchase a Strat. All my other electrics are those pointy headstock models from the 80s...haha. I have been playing for about 25 years and as I got older, I have always planned on purchasing a Strat but haven't found one that felt right for me until I tried this one. I went to GC to help out a friend pick out his first electric and stumbled across this gem and decided to buy it for my self as well. So we both got em from MF! For the price, build & American made, you cant beat it. Its a good looking unit. I'm using it mainly for blues and it certainly gives you the classic Strat sound for that! The only negative comment...and it's a very minor one that I found quite amusing is that the little ducumentation that was included with the guitar was printed in Spanish only. Hmmm...American made guitar without directions in English! Go figure. In any event, great American made guitar for an outstanding price....and dont wait as long as I did to grab an American icon!!! Enjoy!

                            Love the guitar - beautiful to look at and the tone selection is pure vintage Stratocaster. It seems to go out of tune at times so I plan to install locking tuners and block the tremolo (which I don't use) - then I think it will be perfect.
