Vintage and modern ...

Sébastien779, 24.01.2014
This is my third stratocaster after owning a roadhouse USA (1999) and a Jeff Beck. The quality of the materials and the finishing are at the rendezvous.

Handling: nice ... This vibrates and sounds good. The V-handle (soft) was a little scary but it tightens quickly.

Sounds: the cleans sounds are really pleasing to the ear on all positions. The crunches and saturations sound pretty well but keep a side too dry for my taste and I lack a little power to be at my ease. Well this is normal given the intrinsic characteristics of the instrument (and then I have played exclusively on doubles or p90 lately ...). That said the "hot noiseless" and "texas specials" of my previous strato me fit better. It is also true that the low power of the microphones gives a good precision, a net side notes (aside from the vintage frets quite fine) ... This may be interesting for some guitarists.

I think I will soon replace the pickups by noiseless to gain versatility, power, and eliminate the well-known snobs because I like the sound of saturated stratocaster. But I chose this stratocaster for its equipment (bone nut, vintage vibrato ...) and knowing that microphones are easily replaced ...

So mission accomplished ....
