Congratulations!

27.04.2016
With this Strat I as 60 years old re-entry a birthday wish fulfilled.
The Strat came safely packaged and with a usable factory setting (a manual about the recommended pole distances of different PU? S is included). In addition to a good gigbag with 3 pockets for accessories, the accessories are also 2 Allen keys for truss rod and string adjustment, as well as a polish cloth.

The guitar has a 3-piece alder body, and body shaping can only be described as perfect. Also the varnishing ... without flaws ... no paint flaws, or
Dust inclusions ... just good. This is not too thick as with many other guitars that today must drown under a paint tank.

The neck is once again a class in itself. Cleanly dressed 22! Jumbo frets, without burrs and edges. The thinly applied silky matt varnish does not appear to be visible. He rather conveys the feeling one would play on ultra-smooth polished wood ... nothing sticks ... nothing slows down.
The tuners keep the mood - and thus mine - and are supported by two dual roller trees and a cleanly gifted saddle effectively. The detuning of the vintage tremolos (with steel block) therefore remains within acceptable limits. In the delivery condition the guitar is by the way with a 009/042 set - zart- strung.

The headstock, which some of them disdained, is just a reminiscence of a time when I feel musically at home (Clapton, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, etc.). There are, however, a number of Strat experts who are just getting this headstock a better one
Sustain due to the slightly larger vibration mass. If this is so ... well so!

If you only see the headstock in a photo, he may seem inappropriate to his critics. However, if you cut off the whole guitar, it fits harmoniously into the overall picture and hardly occurs. The neck alone deserves 6 stars.

This Strat is far from being a remake of a 1970s Strat. It has the usual 4-point neck mounting (instead of CBS 3-point), a convenient access to the truss rod from the head plate, as well as the 5-way switch which was only available from 1977 onwards. This switch works smoothly but noticeably.

Among the features to be emphasized is certainly the change of the circuit. The second Tonpoti is finally responsible for the bridge pickup. Many have waited for it.

SOUND:

Sound is, of course, difficult to put into words and subjectively. I had the opportunity to test the guitar on 2 tubeamps. A Vox AC15, as well as a Fender Princeton Reverb plus Tretminen. The built-in Texas Special Pu's have far exceeded my expectations ... clear but not too pointed heights, firm bass foundation, as well as a non-disturbing mid-range orientation.

This test clearly showed me the difference between the meaningless tinkling and the powerful SingleCoil sound. The PU? S definitely stay in it.
This strat is a stage-perfect guitar for musicians with professional demands ... without if and when.

I do not want to hide a serious drawback of the guitar here ... she is curious about the Telecaster, which has appeared in the same special series.

Conclusion:
My guests congratulated me on their 60th birthday, I congratulate myself on buying this Strat.

Rock on

My love!

Absolute guitar par excellence.
The choice I, as well as for the fame, for the unmistakable sound.
The Pick-up a little 'vintage and the maple give it a bright sound .. A bit' more "midrange" than the standard.
Highly recommended for sounds a little 'dirty overdrive .. .. ect!
Sound very defined.
Excellent!
