Here’s a little something that will make almost anyone happy. Even the most hard-bitten jaded nitpicking curmudgeon would have trouble finding fault with it. To quote one of my coworkers who fits that description “That guitar will make you a better player.” Indeed. It’s no exaggeration to say that it almost plays itself. The neck shape is fantastic, the fretwork is flawless and the set-up is perfect right out of the box.

Even before it’s plugged in you notice that single notes just hang. There’s as much bite as most Strat players could ask for but it’s tempered with a tonal girth that is rarely apparent in bolt-on guitars. Chords are still nice & articulate but FAT while bends are truly objects of beauty. This guitar is an absolute solo monster. Harmonics jump & sustained notes just drip overtones.

The SC1 pickups breathe single coil sparkle in a hum-canceling package while the H2+ is a well-balanced medium output humbucker. The neck is slim and fast but not too skinny with a consistent feel from the first position all the way up. The contoured heel provides easy access to the upper register. The wedge neck pocket provides more contact area between neck & body and literally locks the neck in place. Fretwork is immaculate & the Buzz Feiten tuning system insures that even the tightest chord clusters play in tune all the way up the neck. Fit & finish are absolutely flawless.
