Superb stratocaster for not a lot of money
p1nzor, 21.02.2019
This is a quality instrument for not a lot of money. My previous strat was a Kenny Wayne Shepherd model which was awesome, but I wanted some more modern features and since I've bought this Fender Deluxe Strat it has become my main guitar.

The main appeal of this guitar for me were modern features such as, locking tuners, 2 point tremolo and noiseless pickups.

The locking tuners work great, they improve tuning stability, reduce the time to change strings and overall are of high quality.

The 2 point tremolo is awesome if you want to do dive bombs, jeff beckish stuff etc and NOT go out of tune. After you set it up and stretch your strings when you change them (also apply some nut graphite stuff) this thing will NOT go out of tune, seriously. I abuse the tremolo constantly and I never go out of tune, most of my friends can't believe it but it's true. The only problem with the tremolo for me is that they didn't went with the pop-in style for the arm. It's a screw in arm type and this can become troublesome after a while. It has a lot of play until you screw it in all the way but then you risk damaging the thread. Use teflon tape or Fender tremolo springs to alleviate the problem but use caution to not screw in too hard to avoid damage to the thread.

Noiseless pickups. If you're not a purist and need something without hum this pickups are great. They sound bright and clear and you can add as much distortion as you want without fearing the dreaded hum. Drawbacks are, Fender puts 1M pots in these and this is overkill for many reasons. When you bring the volume down from 10, the guitar will quickly become muddy and a lot more noisy. This can be fixed by replacing the stock pots to 500k. Also the quacky 2 and 4 positions aren't that quacky and bright, i think this is a problem with most noiseless pickups (or maybe just these)
This guitar also has an added button to add the bridge pickup whenever you want which for me is awesome to get that Tele sound (Neck and Bridge).

Quality. The guitar looks and feels awesome. The build quality is really good. I love the way it looks (big headstock) and the finish is superb. I can honestly say that mexican strats are on the same level as usa made ones. Especially true with the premium mexico models which this is.

If it would get stolen, I'd buy another one the next day.

awesome guitar, received with stuck locking tuners from factory
Iulian Timar, 17.08.2017
it's a shame that the guitar has passed at least 5 people in the Fender factory and still, i received my guitar with all 6 locking tuners stuck. I took my guitar to an experimented luthier and said that he never saw such a thing in his entire career. I don't want to return the guitar since it's almost perfectly built but it's a shame that someone at Fender or somewhere breaks the locking tuners :( The only solution for me now is to try and buy separate locking tuners. Overall the guitar is impressively well built with attention to all details.
