This guitar has blown me away. I recently bought a more expensive start made in the USA by Fender and a friend then showed me his Classic Vibe Strat 50s. I fell in love with the look, the feel and the sheer fantastic quality of the guitar.
I returned my Fender and bought this the day after. It arrived in the most secure and custom box I've ever received. This thing was SERIOUSLY safe in transit.
It tuned up and stayed in tune for the rest of the day and when I could bear to stop playing it, I changed the strings and it sounded even better.
I don't see any need to buy another strat as this competes with the big boys and everyone that has used it in my studio wants one. I know 8 people that bought one after playing mine.
I bought this as I've only heard good things about these guitars. For those who are familiar with cheaper Squier's this guitar is totally different. The pickups are great and the neck is lovely to play on and the guitar is well finished on the whole. There was a wiring problem when it arrived but that's been fixed. I will be upgrading the electrics later as they are not good quality (apart from the pickups).
