Fender Japanese Stratocaster Reviews 5

GOT THIS FROM A FRIEND FOR FREE.(YOU CANT BEAT THAT PRICE). HE HAD IT SINCE 1995. HE BOUGHT AN AMERICAN STRAT BECAUSE HE WANTED 22 FRETS AND A WIDER NECK. ALSO BECAUSE HE BEAT THE **** OUT OF IT PLAYING GIGS.

ITS GOT A FAST BOARD AND A HUMBUCKER WITH 2 SINGLES AND IS BUILT SOLID.EVERYONE WHO TRIES IT SAYS IT HAS GOOD TONE.THE JAPANESE MAKE EVERYTHING GREAT SO I KNOW THIS ONE IS GONNA LAST A WHILE

ITS GOT A FLOYD ROSE P*** IN THE A** FLOATING BRIDGE THAT TAKES FOREVER TO TUNE. THANK GOD FOR GOOD FRIENDS.

GREAT QUALITY, TIGHT FIT AND GREAT DIVE BOMBS (WHEN THE ROSE IS SETUP CORRECTLY)

WOULDNT MIND BUYING A NEW OR USED JAP STRAT (IF YOU CAN FIND ONE).THIS ONES A KEEPER BUT 1 GUITAR CAN NEVER BE ENOUGH.ROCK AND ROLL FOREVER.PEACE

I bought it at Mcees rocks And paid 320$.

It plays better than a mexican strat even though made by japanese folks.

Nothing

It has abolt on neck sunburst color floyd rose tremb. die cast tuners.

it sounds the same as a fender american strat and looks the same. Don't waste your money on the american look for a good old jap strat

Jap Strat rated this unit 5 on 2003-01-06.

I got this guitar used from a private seller, i paid about $350.

what do i ... LIKE? this may take awhile... i like...ummm... everything. First of all, it looks like a guitar anyone would be envious over, secondly, it IS a guitar everyone should be envious over. I love this guitar. The sound quality is amazing, you pay a third of what you pay for an American and it is SO close in sound it is nearly undistinguishable. Mine is a standard, it has three single coil pickups, and i cant say anything but it sounds like a million bucks. I haven't had a problem with it scince I got it. I love it. I wouldnt even trade this guitar for an American strat any day. Seriously.

Dislike? what is that?

Its a Jap Strat, Blonde fretboard, 21 frets. Standard Strat Neck, Body and Bridge Set up. ...THE PICKUPS ARE HOT....

I urge anyone who is buying a used American to just TRY a jap first. See what you think. It sounds different, but honestly not worse. Just try it.
