Good quality product for a reasonable price.

Raz , 15.08.2018
I bought this guitar nearly 3 months ago as a project guitar and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised of how good it is. I don't know if Thomann set it up prior to shipping, but out of the box it played really great. The frets are perfectly levelled but I recommend lubricating the nut and changing the strings. (The nut needs replacing)

- Pickups: sound nice and warm and you get the classic Strat "quack" in positions 2 and 4. The neck pickup is nice especially for blues, the middle pickup is ok although I don't use it much by itself, but the bridge pickup suffers from that "ice-pick" sharpness which I find isn't very useful.

- Tuners: I will change these as soon as I have the chance. They don't hold tune well and they just feel cheap.

- Bridge/Tremolo: I have mine resting on the body as I think it's a poor quality part and kills off any sustain. I will change the trem with a solid brass block.

- Body & Neck: as you would expect from a Strat, it's very comfortable and easy to play. The neck is a medium to slim C. The only complaint I have is the thick lacquer that can get sticky at times.

For my purpose this is a perfect guitar. It is a great base for a lot of upcoming modifications. The best part is that in the meantime it is a perfectly usable Strat that does what's asked of it.

Came playable straight out the box

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.
