Sebring Sebring Strat Replica Reviews
I first saw this guitar in my local music store, Calliope Music. I had been looking for a replacement to my beat up Fender Squire, hoping to find a good Epiphone Les Paul i began to look around. What really caught my eye was a guitar near the back it appeared to be a Fender Strat with a Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish. My reaction was "no way cherry sunburst on a strat!" as I came closer to the guitar i was intrigued and it only got worse as I saw it also had a Flame-Top, not some cheap laminate but the real deal. From a distance i thought it was a Fender Statocaster but when i got closer i saw that it was a, "Sebring performance electric Guitar" as it says on the headstock. I picked the guitar up and started playing it and i was really suprised at how similiar it plays and feels like a Fender Squier. I asked the guy who worked there how it compares to the Fender Squire and he said, "This is a fine axe, I'm not gonna lie to you its not a Fender but it can shred like one." The more i played on it the more I knew i needed to buy it. I asked this veteran riff master how much it was going for expecting to be in the 400-500 dollar range. He pointed to the wall stand it was on and it barred a small tag with the three numbers $199, one word came to my mind..."Sold".
The bottom line is that if you are a beginner guitarist or an intermediate player this is the guitar for you. While it isn't a Fender Stratocaster it does beat the performance of the Squire Affinity in price, looks, playability and overall tone. If you are the player who needs to look good onstage this guitar will definitely compliment you. Overall, If want a low budget high quality axe the Sebring Strat is for you!Anthony Buckley rated this unit on 2003-01-09.
