Absolutely amazing

sandman49, 22.05.2018
This is my first Strat and it blew me away. I have tested several MIMs, but this is probably the best sounding Strat <1k.
It is a beautiful instrument, looks even better live. Well made as you'd expect from MIA Strat.

I love the Texas Special single coils in neck and middle position. That sweet Strat sound, with more bite and body. SRV and Knopfler played those.
Atomic H in bridge position brings more gain, so this guitar sounds amazing playing cleans, blues, crunch, but will also be great for some hard rock and high gain leads. That's why I chose HSS version - single in bridge position sounded too weak for some heavier tunes.

It's sad though, Fender doesn't include a hard case. It's an american series, so I think they should.

Of course thanks Thomann for a packing that would withstand atomic bomb and lightning-fast delivery!

Evil guitar

25.01.2016
The all-terrain guitar, wild in any style, blues, hard rock, pop, reggae, punk, metal, atomic humbucker sounds like the highest gain pill on the market yet maintaining that magic touch of the stratocaster's timbre, and Color white skull is already the colophon in this guitar so well thought and manufactured.

In my opinion, there is no guitar in the market right now that surpasses it in quality / price ...

Greetings and enjoy it ...
