        Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        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.

              Tone is fantastic! love the no load tone pot. and the neck. I actually love the satin finish, easy to play and has no problems when sweaty. Muscians Friend treated me great and the price for an American made Strat was extraordinary! I have been playing neckthru active pickup guitars with my band and grew tired of the muddy sound. When i played this the first night at practive, my band mates said this was the best sounding guitar i own( i own 7) I love it! get your self one today before they are gone.

              Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

              I had problems with the first one i recieved and had to return it. When i went to adjust the bridge screw for the 5th string it just stripped out on me . then the 6th string did the same thing. looked like the screw was ok but the hole was machined too big or something. any way i went to adjust the truss rod and set the string height but never could get it correct with the specs in the manual. just a lot of fret buzz.very dissapointed. also noticed the body made from 3 pieces of wood. not impressed for a usa made guitar.expected more for the price. the strings were the worst i've ever played. lucky for me the people at musician's friend sent out another one which i found to be much better. got the guitar neck,string height,and intonation set up very quickly, and this has very little fret buzz,plays great, great action, great sound although there is some hum in the electronics. also noticed that this one is made from only 2 pieces of wood. so far this guitar has been great.It plays easily and the clean sound is awesome! thanks musicians friend

              Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

              I took the Plunge. Received mine last night. It is everything I had hoped it would be. USA-made Stratocaster, sweet sound from the 3 Standard Single Coil pickups. No Hum that I can detect, and I even TRIED to cause it. The 9.5 radius neck really helps with the Barre Cords. With this guitar, I can EASILY do Barres that were very difficult for me on my other guitars. I have to get used to the "10s" strings (I was using 9s for a long time), but it handles real well. I did a lot of Bending, from the Nut to the 12th fret, and NO fretting out or buzzing. This guitar behaves like a favorite old dog.

              LOVE the RANGE you get, with the 5-way PU Selector. I use an El Cheapo clip-on Tuner...once it's tuned, it STAYS in tune.

              Guitar came perfectly set-up, Intonation and all is perfect, or at least as perfect as I can tell. Needs NO setup work. Take it out of the box, tune it up a half-step or so, and away you go. Packing was excellent - very well protected.

              The finish is BEAUTIFUL. NO flaws in the wood or the finish. The natural wood, through the Satin stain, is clean and clear. No knots, spots or cracks.

              No Whammy bar, but I didn't want one anyway. Rigid bridge, but I expect that will help it stay in tune. Love the headstock and Logo. Clear-stained Maple neck & fretboard, Jumbo frets...everything I always wanted in a Stratocaster.

              AT THIS PRICE, I'd say: GRAB IT. Don't even consider a MIM - not to knock them, but - get THIS one instead. You'll be very happy you did. My two other guitars are going to get very Jealous, very soon. I am very happy I bought this. I recommend it, with no reservations.

              P.S.: Comes with a decent padded Gig bag, which is nice, but - spring for a Fender Hardshell case. I did.

                  Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                  You know, it's funny. I'm a child of the 80's. I guess I always liked Fenders and Gibsons, but I was caught up in that whole metal thing. I had played a ton of strats/strat copies/strat clones, etc... and they were "ok", but to me, happiness was a Charvel/Jackson or Ibanez.

                  It's a genre thing I guess, whatever.

                  As I've gotten older though, and the metal thing has piped down, I find myself revisiting a lot of the classics. I love Gibsons, Gretsch, Ricks, etc... and recently I found myself wanting to own a strat, something I could play good old rock-n-roll with.

                  Fender has always irked with the way they have to offer a guitar at every price point, for every style, all the time. It makes it very difficult to navigate through the muck to find something that will actually suit you, that doesn't cost a fortune.

                  I knew exactly what I wanted, and was shocked when I saw this strat being offered on sale for FAR less than I thought I would have to spend for this type of strat. I ordered it,even though it was backordered, and waited like a kid at Christmas until it showed up a month or so later.

                  All I can say is this; I owe you strat-heads out there an apology. I flippin' LOVE this guitar. The other reviews have done a great job and covering the fit and finish and the tone. I could see getting better tuners and MAYBE some different pups (probably not though), but besides that I wouldn't change a single thing. Not one thing.

                  The setup was awesome right out of the box, the gig bag is nicer than most, and I just have to say that I have never... N-E-V-E-R had a guitar feel so natural in my hands so quickly. It took literally an hour for the guitar to feel like I've been playing it for years. I am impressed.

                  So, if you can't tell, I'm a big fan of this axe!

                  This was a total bargain, pretty much am American Standard. I still can't believe what I got it before. Not only was it better than a Level 2, it was better than a Level 1 Mint! If you want a working Stratocaster, BUY THIS NOW! You would be a fool to let this deal go! Incredible and smooth, great fingerboard and fretwork. The tome with this finish is magically delicious! I may change to hotter pups, MAYBE, but I already ordered Fender locking tuners for it, also at a discount! Buy this ax or lose a huge opportunity! BUY IT USED IF UOU HAVE TOO!
