As a person who would much rather prefer to play deeper tones, this Stratocaster does deliver on certain aspects. It is cheap and versatile and often times pretty reliable for a set amount of tones. I used this quite a lot for studio and gigs, but never relied on it heavily. I kept it in the arsenal just as a backup or a throwaway if the time needed it. The neck feels a little bulky and the body is a lot lighter than a Fender Stratocaster. The bridge itself was pretty crappy as when I would put in the tremolo arm, I would have to retune it up 3 steps because the tremolo would detune. Good guitar for the price, and not so much with the sound.
