Manufactured in Ensenada, Mexico. This Fender is gaining respect among those who like to improve a good instrument. Just replace the pickups and you'll get a gig-worth guitar.
I bought this guitar and i love it still. I love it like we love the retarded neighborhood kid who's just kind but we all know something is up. The Made in Mexico Strat is wronged. Yes, wronged. Why is it wronged? Well, the pickups are not as good as a Fender's should be. The bridge is unrefined, what affects tuning by a bit. The overall attention to detail is not sufficient to pass my barrier of satisfaction.
How did I fix my retarded friend? Custom Shop '69 Pickups, Wilkinson Tremolo (Oh My God, I love that Trem.)
That is it! Just replace the most important stuff and you're good to go!
Ésta es "nuestra" guitarra principal en el escenario. Ésta es la que usamos en las tocadas, y tiene un sonido poderoso. This is "our" main guitar on stage. This is the one we use in the gigs, and it's got a powerful sound.
I like the guitar, but since it has vintage spacing, the saddles where to small, so I had to change them so that there wasnt any space between the saddles that could make the sustain worse. I also dont like the vintage frets to much, and want to change the neck at one point, getting it with jumbo frets and a non glossy neck. I havent tried the stock pickups, since I bought it used with SD ssd1 pickups. I have the nitro laquer version btw.
