It's very versitile and is very suited to my styles. I'm using it with a Korg AX1500G and it sounds amazing. The only probs are they arn't very adjustable without the effects but still fantastic. With the guitar the main sounds of a Strat are still held but the added sound of a Les Paul. Nice!
Overall Impression — 10
I play blues and most rock and the guitars versitility is perfect for all types of music. If the guitar was stolen I'd probably get another the same, I love the finish, the features and the pickups as theyre all so unique! This if one of the best guitars I've played except a couple I shall not name but is definatle in my top 5! The price won't break your bank and is fantastic value!
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitaar will definatly withstand gigging and the hardware seems very durable. The strap buttons were enlarged at the factory but still needed straplocks but not a problem. I wouldn't use it on a gig without a backup like any. Always bring a backup! The finish is very thick and stunningly beautiful and should age fantasticly!
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The guitar was set up fine at the factory and the actions was neer perfect but neededslight lowering. The Pup And 'Bucker were at perfect heights and need no adjusting, the bucker is a little loose but nothing to worry about!
Features — 10
This guitar is a 2004 model Fender Tie-Dye Stratocaster. The guitars body is the same as a Standard Strat but abut 1cm bigger in deph maybe about 1/2 cm. I haven't really measured. It's got a 22 fret neck which is slimm and vey fast. One of the unique feature is the lack of inlays which is very easy to get use to. The trem is a two point locking tremelo with schaller locking tuners and a graphite nut and stays in tune very well. The pickups are a Fender Cumstom Set Od pickups, one is a noiseless pickup (modified) and the other is a Fender Cumtom Bucker and a three way Switch.
