After I had it for about a year I did the mod where you add a switch to keep the bridge pickup on all the time to get a couple more pickup combinations. The bridge and neck pickups together sound absolutely amazing! I friggin love this guitar.
The bodies of the sienna burst American Standard Strats are made of ash, much better ash than on any MIM I've seen. Compared to an ash MIM Tele I own, it's more resonant, has beautiful yet subtle grain, and is a lot lighter too. The guitar weighs under 7 lbs. so it's very comfortable to hold and stand up with and the body is just two pieces, nicely matched. The rosewood board is polished smooth. The maple neck hasn't dried and contracted, causing sharp fret ends. And the finish is great, around half as thick as the finish on a MIM.
The tuners aren't locking but they're firm and steady. The medium-large frets are very well finished. The knobs and jack all are solid and work without noise. You get hum cancellation in the #2 and #4 pickup positions.
The pickups are Fat 50s, which sound very full when compared to Tex-Mex and standard Fender pickups, but they're not very good lead pickups. The bridge pickup gets kind of muddy so no SRV sounds when plugged straight in. It's ripe for an upgrade to something sharper and with higher output.
The bridge floats well while staying in tune (it comes pinned so there are some adjustments to get it to float). The trem bar screws in so it takes a couple of seconds to get it on and off.
So overall a nice professional quality guitar. It comes in an excellent Fender SKB flight case with TSA-approved locks, which would cost another $150 or more if purchased separately, and includes a basic Fender strap, cable and polishing cloth.
I have to say I wasn't disappointed. The fret treatment from the factory was equal to my bandmates

Fender has really improved their entire product line and this guitar is no exception.
Brilliant strat tone.. flawless execution. intonates perfectly.
