Beautiful to look at, play and listen to

emcgon, 03.10.2018
I love (almost) everything about it. The neck is a lovely shape and feels just perfect: smooth and velvety but just matte enough not to be sticky. The locking tuners are great: very precise and stable (although I had to use a pliers to open one of them at the first string change). The two-point floating bridge works very well: you can bend strings or use the whammy bar all you like and it drops back perfectly into tune. The extra button (which adds the bridge pickup into positions 4 and 5) adds even more versatility to an already versatile instrument. And that paintwork: a rich, deep blue that is just translucent enough to let the natural beauty of the wood-grain show through.

The only thing I don't absolutely love - and this is a purely personal thing - is the mint-green pick-guard. I wound up buying and fitting a genuine Fender pearlescent white replacement. Be warned, though - this is not completely straightforward: I had to drill a hole and fabricate a fitting for the "deluxe" switch (there is a plastic mount glued onto the back of the original pick-guard).

Be prepared to do a little setting up when you get it: it shipped with the intonation not quite right. But when you do, it sounds sublime and is a pleasure to hold and play.

Claptons Pro Elite

SidK, 02.06.2018
The easiest way to describe this guitar is to mix Eric Clapton's Blackie Signature with the American Fender Elite and Pro Stratocaster.
She has the Noiseless Single Coils (v3) of the Clapton Signature paired with Fender Deluxe Locking Tuners and Eschekorpus (Elite) and the smooth maple neck plus the fine vibrato as in the Am Pro.

So what makes the guitar different from the more expensive models?
The minimal inferior processing.
For example. the saddle is a little bit worse (but still really good) and the body consists of 2 ash blocks (a big block and a smaller one).
The optically "only second best choice" of the woods after the high-quality American models are used (thus "only" high instead of very high optical quality without generally sound-technically measurable difference).
In the elite meanwhile the Noiseless v4 are installed to keep at least some distance to this Mexico model.
Nevertheless, the overall processing is really convincing, the neck has a smoothness, as I have not experienced in my other, more expensive guitars yet.

Sound?
Sound technically has a little bit worse processing my hearing after zero effect.
If you did not know all that, you would not notice it in a blind test to the taste of most people.

What moved me to buy this guitar over other models:
- Soundtechnisch the possibility of the S1 switch Bridge and Neck as well as all single coils sound together (Therefore not the Roundhouse).
- The great feel. It's just fine with me in the hand and the Bendings work knotless.
- The design. The blue lacquer on the ash to the super maple neck (soft satin finish). I would have liked with the blue clear coat only slightly lighter / thinner, so you can see the beauty of the ash even better.
- The totality of processing. She is personally more balanced for me than the American Special, who has been with me for a long time. This one has its pros and cons and for me this package was the better choice (the sound of the special is wonderful, but the amp settings are too much "background noise." Tuners and tremolo are inferior there).
- Value for money compared to the Custom Shop and the American models. (Money plays a role.) :-)

In addition, interesting:
This is the guitar that harmonizes best with my Orange Rocker 15 from my collection for my taste. (Is my personal impression and potentially debatable.)
On the Fender Bluesbreaker 15 she looks average.
In terms of taste I focus on the rock sounds of the 70s to 90s (blues to hard rock, so very variable with the emphasis on rock).

I hope I could give you a few hints that you have not been able to read before.
