Well I've heard alot of good and some bad things about the FR-422SM Striker. They run out of stock ALOT too. They seem too good to be true for the price. I was just wondering if anybody here has played them and how they feel and play. Mostly the feel. I'm looking for a really smooth neck and these are supposedly great. I'm looking to play 80's hairmetal and a little 70's hard rock like aerosmith, and Led Zeppelin. Also if you know anything bad about them please say. Alot of reviews say the guitar feels and sounds grat but was set up was bad or electronics were messy.

yeah, mine came with a terrible setup and the electronics are starting to die etc. it's not a bad guitar for the price, but the trem's not amazing (it seems to stay in tune, just it's extremely unresponsive), and i think mine could do with a neck shim too.

i paid around £200 for it at the time. I'd say it was probably worth (going by prices at the time) about £300. It's certainly not as good as my £400 ibanez rg.

it's not a bad guitar, but i've never really got on with mine- i'd put it in the lower part of the intermediate category, or maybe between intermediate and beginner.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

its good, but its sounds better with a new bridge pickup (tonezone in my case..) and a good sanding down of the neck (and of course a refinish after sanding..)-coz its got a pretty thick neck, imo. i got it for $150 (NEW)....
