Sup guys, I'm looking to buy a new guitar and I just went into my local music today to try some out. I tried out a few (PRS's, Gibson's, Ibanez's) but nothing impressed me until I picked up the Fender Blacktop Stratocaster. I love it!

It's so versatile and offers such a range of sounds with the choice of using humbuckers and single coils in almost any combination you choose. I want to buy it ASAP because the shop only has one in stock and I'm worried it might be sold soon. I just wanted to ask if anyone knows or has heard of any problems this guitar has?

Thanks, Joe.

From what I've heard they're pretty good. I certainly haven't seen anybody complaining about them anyway.

I think that's decent praise actually, since my Jackson/Charvel obsession usually means that I rage at the sight of an HH strat that doesn't say Charvel on the headstock...

Pics please!

EDIT: ...you haven't got it yet. woops

Dude that is so weird... My shop only has one in stock and I played it against a PRS SE too! The blacktop owned.

I have one last question. Are the pick-ups considered to be good quality?

the pickups are very good. they are the same ones (to my knowledge as i own and researched about the blacktop jaguar) as in the jaguar hh special.

the stratocaster has all mexi strat dimensions, except for the pickups. the 5 way switch also lets you choose between inner and outer coils, or one or the other pickup (plus both together). it's extremely diverse and very comfortable.
