Fender: Standard Fat Strat

Purchased from: Academy Of Sound, Glasgow

Sound — 10
It has bridge humbucker and 2 single coils so it's excellent for metal, punk, grunge etc. I use it with a Marshall dual-channel valve amp usually and I've tried it RULES!!!

Overall Impression — 10
It rules for any kind of rock if your rhythm or lead. I would choose this over anything apart from a Jaguar with a bridge humbucker and neck single coil though....

Reliability & Durability — 10
It's really good live and will last me ages. The hardwear is reliable too. The strap buttons are as tight as something really tight (...use your imaginion...). Really reliable.

Mine is black like one pictured with Kurt Cobain at timesand looks just like it. Only with black pick-ups. The one pictured is the same only with a Floyd Rose trem. It rules even more than mine. Looks better too. The machineheads are older ones and are crap for restringing. But you get that done by some guy in a guitar shop and your fine.
