Good Value
Carlos Teh Jackal, 24.02.2021
I bought this as a modding platform and so far have added locking tuners, graphite string trees and a graphite nut. I was planning to swap the pick-ups for a set I took out of a MiM Strat, but I actually like the sound of these, so considering keeping them for now. The body is thinner than a Strat body normally is, so my plans to swap the trem system may change, but then I don't really use a trem much so I might make this a hard-tail.

Overall, these are pretty good value for money. The hardware is about what you should expect for the money, and the changes I have made were already in the plan for this guitar. The original tuners weren't bad and worked quite well, but locking tuners are always my preference for a guitar with trem so I put a set of Wilkinson locking tuners on. The nut was a little sticky, but serviceable with a little light sanding and graphite from a pencil, but I had already planned to put a graphite nut on this to improve tuning stability and replaced it with a Graphtech TUSQ nut.

The tone is very good for a guitar in this price bracket, and I'm actually enjoying it. The volume difference between the humbucker and single coils is a little annoying at first, but only to be expected, and you get used to adjusting for it.

You get what you pay for, as they say. With this guitar, you get a pretty decent platform to upgrade, though it does sound pretty good out of the box as the set up was not too bad. Just a little tinkering and it was fine. A great starter guitar and if you're happy to spend a little time and money on it, a very useable instrument. I'm not going to pretend this stacks up well against my Fenders or my Squier Classic Vibe, but nor should it when you consider the price differences. I'm looking at buying a Harley Benton ST style guitar at some point, so will be keen to see how this stacks up to that since I expect to be spending around the same kind of money.

Excelent guitar for the price
A.J Costello, 12.05.2020
I have tried a lot of guitars in my past but this one is my favorite if you are on a budget. It has amazing pickups which sound like a fender and has amazing versatility with the HSS configuration

Good for beginners
Marko Cvetkovic, 24.07.2020
A solid, inexpensive guitar. Bought it for my daughter. The build quality is fine, and honestly you can't expect it to be much better for this price. But the sound is still pretty good. This is a very good choice for a beginner.

Perfekte Einsteiger Strat!
DerWeisi_, 20.11.2020
Für Einsteiger ein sehr gutes Instrument! Auch erfahrene Spieler können auf der Strat ihren Spaß haben. Die Feinmechanik und die Regler könnten etwas weniger grobmotorisch sein, aber für den Preis passt das schon!

Soundtechnisch hört man eine klassische Strat. Teuerere Modelle klingen da natürlich etwas weicher und differenzierter, aber für den Einstieg in das Gitarrelernen passt dies gut!

Squier muss sich hier vom großen Bruder Fender auf keinen Fall verstecken - Spaß hat man mit der Affinity Fat Strat IL MBK auf jeden Fall :)
