Fender: Mexican Stratocaster

Purchased from: kley zemer

the problem in mexican strats you can go on a good sounding one or a bad sounding one same price which means - you liked that mex strat buy it! if you didn't like it don't buy it. mine was noisy as singlecoils but later on I changed the bridge pickup to a non traditionally bridge pickup the DiMarzio tone zone it's amazing i've gotta say the neck and middle pickups amaze me everytime i just love em. the guitar is a more blusey jazzy sound by it's own can get mark knofler sounds with singlecoils can do hard rock/metal with a high output humbucker but it won't be ideal. not always that dream sound in your head but can get pretty close. 8

this guitar is the starter's regular guitar you may fall on a great factory line or on a bad one use your ear to judge and I gotta say even though it's cheap and not amazing toned i love my Strat - i actually can get my dream tone with her. can't believe? search my youtube account (mirrorstrar) I only wish it had a killswitch and better tuning stability that turns my guitar to perfect. gonna invest in that soon hehe

it get's out of tune fast. really fast definetly not a guitar for live performance though a pedal tuner solves the problem >< I'll give it 8 because i can't know how it was unused so i do technical stuff i learnt about it >< but just for notice i did perform with it it balances perfectly and since i have an awesome pedal tuner i'm covered

well I've got mine with a free setup from the store cuz it was used... but i know fender's reliability rocks. only that one time the strap holders fell and i needed to get this done but again this guitar is used. 8 because it's reasonable but i don't know the original factory's setup ><

made in 1992 21 frets on a maple neck and rosewood top 25.5 scale fender stock pickups basswood body (yeah they had basswood at 92 for strats) 2 tone controls 1 volume 5 way pickup selector great for beginners. i love the Strat style body so i'm off with that but that's different between each person XD
