The legendary Fender Stratocaster, the guitar invented way back in the early 50's by Leo Fender that went on to change the world with Rock and Roll.

The modern version, still made to a price point for us poor people, is, famously, made in Mexico. And this is quite something, not having the expense of US made instruments, but not having come from the Far East just makes owning one more special.

So, what do you get in a Mexican made instrument for this sort of money? You should be very interested in finding out!

So, what are the controls? The top knob is the master volume, the middle knob is the tone for the pickup nearest the neck, the bottom knob is the tone control for the middle pickup. The bridge pickup has no tone control. The we have the 5 way selector switch, allowing a broad range of tonal variety from this uber versatile guitar.

The neck pickup, position 1, is fairly warm and mellow, good for metal, country and pop rhythm work, the middle position, 3, is brighter, good for most rhythm work and also lead. The bridge position, 5, is extremely bright, that famous Strat sound of course, made famous by countless players over the last 60 years or so, excellent for lead work in almost any genre.

Underneath the bridge pickup is that other recognisable Stratocaster thing, the Vintage Tremolo bridge and arm, sometimes called a trem bar, or whammy bar, or arm, it has a few different names.

What does it do, well listen to an old rock 'n' roll record from the 50's or 60's and you'll almost certainly hear it being used to slacken or stretch the strings, giving a slightly wacky sound!

There is not a genre of music that Strats haven't been used on, so it's not aimed at anyone in particular. Heavy metal and rock, country, jazz, blues, pop, rock 'n' roll, anything you want to play can be played with the Fender Stratocaster.

So, in all, a very, very playable guitar, and extremely popular, you just can't go wrong, everything feels so right, it's comfortable, versatile, light, easy to play, beautiful to look at, instantly recognisable, great value for money and you want one.
