In the market for a Strat?, well your search is over friend. :)
When you hold, play and hear this Squier VM 70s version sing you'll be amazed to find that is an UNBELIEVABLE product. As I come from semi-hollow guitars (clean sounds) it is going to be quite difficult for me to pay $800-1K for an American made after playing this Indonesian remake. It is that good!
Seriously guys, it is not going to be the same but it is pretty darn close! If you're a player and not a shower, you'll know where I'm coming from...
Do play both at your local guitar store, you'll taste how easily $600 bucks can be saved. If you're like me and don't mind a little fat around edges of your steak (meaning not perfect), you'll never look back after having this rare opportunity @ $225 delivered to your door.
It's a new 2012 batch for the Vintage Modified lineup and probably FMIC went all out to improve these ones, SO in demand that I had to wait a few more days to get my Black w/Maple neck shipped. B-E-autiful tint neck w/skunk stripe, rolled edges, lock-in tuners and nice fat headstock. Light weight body, gloss finish, front & back white lined guards.
Duncan pups are just right, vintage tremolo and the 4-point neck plate are engraved, through a tube amp sounds as Fender as it can be.
Came with a decent set up, with no fret or pick up buzz here either.
It really is a well made-solid instrument, I expect it'll last me a long time. Get yours now, HURRY& ROCK ON!
