Fender: Starcaster S2

Sound — 7
its a beginners guitar if u have money to upgrade the pickups and throw a whammy on it itll sound pretty cool.It came with a cheapy 15g frontman amp but instead I use a Line 6 spider ! i love the hammer ons but for some reason it refuses to tap neatly it plays sloppy especially with distortion ,i have an fx pedal and man it sounds awesome .especially with a clean effect.

Overall Impression — 9
I play classic to hard rock to metal and any type of rock. it doesnt like bieng distorted but it sound great with fx and clean its an excellent beginners guitar especially souped up it stayed in tune and likes to be played great for learning and not permorming..........

its lasted 8 years plays nice and is a great beginner guitar. if anythin braks 95% is fixable and cheap for this guitar. i wont be playin it anytime soon and i would only gig with it if its an emergency.considering it uncooperates with distortion. ocassionaly the strap falls of lucky enoygh in never fell while practicing recommended change of lots of things.

bought it used so it was in almost good condition but i fixed her up and it looks sexy but i hate its sharp head. the third double pickup falls out ocassionally but thats cuz i was dikin around with it. since it was used i had no idea what kind of abuse it went through but shes in better arms now.... ....
