It's not as good as it looks!

Yordan, 29.05.2017
The feel of the neck seems to be thicker than the standard, and the frets are lower and this creates discomfort. Floyd rose is of poor quality! There is clearance and two of the threads, the second and fifth strings are almost spoiled. Two more bolt turns and will be for replacement. The first string sounds quieter in the neck and middle posicions. The sixth string does not have a punch in bridge pickup. If you change the frets, floyd rose and pickups will get better.

A HSS Strat with Floyd Rose ...

Jerry B., 28.07.2013
... is a mixture which probably leads most of the Strat purists contemptibly hanging corners of the mouth and impels the question why it must necessarily be a Strat and not a typical metal ax à la Charvel / Jackson (which is synonymous to the ever-increasing Fender Club)) where Humbucker and Floyd Rose are installed as standard as standard. The question is certainly justified, but the HSS FR Strat, and this may be the answer, is mainly a Strat and despite the relevant features NO metal ax.

However, we take the good piece first, and let us have the fine look. The aged cherryburst is a real highlight and the maple neck has a delicious grain with lying annual rings and everything is first-class processed and varnished. Also the chrome-colored Floyd Rose is outstanding on the Strat, only the humbucker is a bit sluggishly processed, the two coils are crooked to each other and the black fabric that surrounds the coils is a bit above the white plastic cover; All in all a bit unloved but nothing creeping.

The setting ex factory was for my taste rather mediocre; For me, the strings were too high, and the tremolo was set free-floating, I prefer it on the body as I vibrate anyway never up. In addition, I have locked it with 5 springs which creates a more tight connection between body and tremolo, which in turn makes the tremolo more difficult but the response and the sustain improves. With the Floyd Rose, I'm more concerned about the tuning stability and the fine tuning than the tremolo in itself, which is why I have installed a Tremol No on some guitars. In conjunction with the FR brass sustainblock, these guitars have a measurable attack and very quickly shift into the overtones of high-gain. Who likes it, p ..... but that is all taste.

The sound of this strat in the dry test is quite present, and from an amazing volume, which is partly partly due to the brass sustainblock. The treble and mids are more pronounced than the basses, the overtone behavior is already dry. The playability is quite good, no snarling, no deadspots, only the compound Griffbrettradius one must like, I personally prefer a flatter fretboard, but can live well with it.

Who now because of the humbucker believed after the kick on the Gainpedal would leave the metal post, which could be disappointed. The output of the humbucker in the bridge position is moderate and resembles that of a PAF, the really fat board à la Di Marzio Evolution or even EMG 81/85 is looking for in vain. I think this is very positive because this makes Strat the general purpose weapon. Both in the clean channel and high gain, this strat always makes a good figure in all switch positions. Van Halen Licks, for example, is outstanding on this instrument, and Eddie would certainly enjoy it.

The neckpickup delivers an amazingly high-pitched sound image and reacts extremely directly to Pinch Harmonics, which I rarely experienced in the neck position, but most of the instruments tend to be slower and more bass-heavy in this setting. Nevertheless, the sound has the usual tubular woody note and is thus predestined for sensitive Pink Floyd solos and / or fast Malmsteen Shreds (one tries to combine both, sounds hammered;)).

The intermediate channels in the clean channel allow for sparkling radio riffs à la Ross Bolton to balladsque picking inserts, whereby the efficiently working potentiots can be used effectively.

Dive Bomb riffs à la Steve Vai are theoretically possible thanks to the Floyd Rose but because of the moderate output and the neck, which is not quite as fast as an Ibanez JEM, is not necessarily the domain of this Strat.

The conclusion is that if you are looking for a solid solid, versatile good-sounding and well-playable rock guitar, with this strat is best served, who is looking for a metal ax, should perhaps look elsewhere.

Highly recommended 5 stars out of 5
