Worthy of its legendary heritage

Andy.I, 23.12.2017
To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about buying a precision and pricey instrument like this Strat over the internet. But thankfully Thomann proved me wrong. My Strat arrived safely packed, just as described, looking gorgeous in Sunburst and maple neck.
Plus, those Texas special pups give a striking sound. I honestly can't think of anything negative; Maybe it's because it is my first Strat, until now I had an entry level Yamaha Pacifica and an ESP MH-100QMNT, both are good but the Strat is definitely a work of art. Plus the 'Made in USA' is more than welcome. Highly recommended :)

American Special Strat

gcoza, 02.11.2017
Good guitar with awfull tuning stability.
I?m kind of expected that but Fender should have solved this problem a years ago. I bought a new guitar for 1000 euros and now I have to think about lubricants or locking tuners. Japanese or other quality guitars have no such problems.
On the other side neck is outstanding. Playability is superb and intonation is very good. Fret job well done. Jumbo frets are not very tall which is good for chord intonation but enough for easy bending. They are just perfect for me. I like satin finish on maple necks.
Texas special pick ups sounds good. Yes, you get that Stevie Ray tone, but you can play whatever you want (Yngwie, Gilmour, Shadows...)

My guitar came with 4 pieces body, not three like others reviewers said. Paint job is ok.
All in all I will keep this guitar because this is not my number one guitar. I just wanted strat tone in my little arsenal of guitars.
One more thing. I owned MIM classic 70s strat for more then 10 years. I have sold it recently. For those who are reluctant whether to buy american special or mexican guitar I would say go with American special for 150 euros more. That is my experience.
UPDATE: After few days I manage to set this guitar up properly. (I have 30 years of experience). I have to mention another little problem. Nut slot for high E string was cut in higher position then slots for other strings (the slot did not follow the radius of the neck properly) so intonation near headstock was little off. Expecially D major chord.
I managed to fix it but this should not happen on the guitars of this class.
