      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.

        Comments about Fender USA Nitro Satin Series Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        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!!

                  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.

                        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

                        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.
