Sound — 9
Sound definitely sound great, delivering a bright tonal range exactly for rhythm guitar works, because in my band I usually play rhythm. For lead its quite great too, considering it has a texas special pickups great for blues tones. Noise can be heard if you Switch on 1,3,5 positions, but its inevitable because its 3 single coil pickups.

Overall Impression — 8
For overall impression, i definitely believe this guitar is great considering for the price, its looks goods and perfect for performances. If ever it were stolen, ill definitely buy a new one.

Reliability & Durability — 9
Reliability, i think this will withstand the test of time, discoloration might be inevitable, but the sound and the built is quite good considering its made in mexico. Yes I can depend on it in live performances and gig without any backup, it will be a kind of main guitar.

Action, Fit & Finish — 6
Factory set-up is not good, I need to adjust the action first. But when set-up correctly the guitar sounds great.

Features — 8
Last 2010 i purchased a Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Made in Mexico, i believe it is made in the year 2007 based on the serial number. Main features that I like most is its looks and beauty. It has a 5-way selector Switch for SSS pickups.
