Great Guitar

By Js90Lx

from Watkinsville, GA

See all my reviews

This guitar sounds awesome and looks awesome. The build quality is top notch. At 1st it would not stay in tune using the bar much but Big Bends Nut Sauce took care of that. Action is perfect right out of the box. The scallops do help for bends and vibrato. I did not have to get use to the fretboard just felt natural to me. This guitar is a better value than my Les Paul Classic. I would buy this guitar again.

A must if you want to play like a pro!

By 80sGuy

This guitar will certainly improve your chops. I have own the very first USA (1988) YJM Stratocaster and still play to this day. What I like most about this guitar is the alder body which puts out a solid resonance whether playing clean or through a Marshall at full shred. Also the DiMarzios really filter out the unwanted noises. I like to switch guitars back and forth within my playing time (Les Paul, '72 re-issue Strat) and what a difference it made on my shredding playing the others...my guitar playing was certainly alot easier in terms of technical phrasing and above all, feel, after building up with the scalloped neck Strat. I have total control over other non scalloped neck guitars.

IMPRESSIVE GUITAR

By Holmes

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

I had read a lot of reviews on this guitar, before I shelled out the bucks for it. I was a little nervous, because a lot of comments were made about the scalloped neck being hard to get used to. I am extremely happy with this guitar. It is my third Fender, and by far the best. Don't be afraid of the negative comments on the scalloping, BUY IT. This guitar has great tone, and practically plays itself!

Lovin It

By James-gqSWS

from Salt Lake City, UT

The scalloped fretboard is hard to get used to at first, but after playing for a while, you can see why Yngwie scallops his fretboards. I have a hard time playing non-scalloped guitars now. I love my guitar and would not sell it for any price. This a great value for your money on a fine instrument. I also have a DOD YJM Distortion pedal and if you want to sound like Yngwie, buy it as well. Shred on!!!

Awesome Ax

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this is one of the best strats you could ever buy, and that says a lot. I love the scalloped fretboard. It gives you perfect control over bending and vibrato. And, it lets you bend very high for a strat. the scallops also make it more comfortable to play than almost any ax i've played, it feels like you're fretting on air. this ax is perfect for absolutely any style of music. whether you like yngwie or not you should buy it if you've got the bucks.

Your New Favorite Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I am so impressed with the way this plays it's not even funny. No, I had never played a 'scalloped' neck before, but I took a chance. And I'm glad I did. Keep in mind you will need to take this guitar to have it set up right(lower the action, adjust intonation, all that good stuff). Now, with the guitar set to my likings, it's just amazing. This guitar is really fun to play; It has increased my practice time three fold on inspiration alone; This is a quality, well made Fender, and for the price it's just insane not to pick one up. The neck is comfortable and playable everywhere. There is no 'one part' of the guitar that doesn't play as good as the others; All your classic/neo-classical rock/metal tones can be obtained here; It's maybe not the best for thrash, but works fine for anything else. I guess the bottom line is it's a really well made guitar that is a joy to play. If you have ever been on the fence about a scalloped neck, this would be a great opportunity. I can't imagine you would regret it...

BEST FOR SHRED!!!

By Ultimateshredder

from Atlanta, GA

See all my reviews

I got this guitar about a year a go and its the best, I have 7 electrics and still this is the best. The scallop frets make it easyer to bend not for speed. If you get this guitar i would up a Dimarzio Super Distortion in for the bridge pick up, I did that and it sounds so much better.

Great guitar at a good price

By Greg M.

from Greenville, SC

Everything you would want in a Strat. Thick sound to rival a Les Paul and the guitar plays like a dream. Although you have to get used to the scalloped fretboard, the most surprising thing about this guitar is that it is balanced extremely well--not a top (headstock) heavy strat. Excellent sound, smooth playability, quality products, and a good price--you cannot ask for anything more from a guitar. A true classic and what I consider to be the best signature series Fender strat made.

Yngwie sig. strat

By Wayne-t9Akh

from Meriden, CT

This is the best guitar i've owned since my 73 strat. It has the best tone of any guitar on the market. I was alway in to blackmore more than Yngwie and it pegs his tone more than his custom shop model..this is a must play guitar!!!!!
