I have the limited run of this guitar for either Musiciansfriend or the Guitar Center. It has a nice dark red mahogany body with a black head-stock which I think is pretty cool. The mahogany body makes it a little heavier however it's not that noticeable to me. It's got the diamond humbucker in it which is OK. I'm thinking about swapping it out but not sure yet (any suggestions???) since the guitar is new to me. The play-ability of the guitar is what you would expect for a fender although I'm not getting that nice strat sound out of the neck PUP...could be my current setup so I need to play with it. Overall I like the feel of the guitar, the action is nice and I like having the best of both worlds with the HSS config. I'm not sure if the LSR nut has anything to do with it however there's a noticeable difference while bending. It seems to provide more feeling than what I'm used to. It would be interesting to see what others on this website say about the LSR nut since this is the first time I played a guitar that has one. That's it for now.
