I just got my first American Strat, I've had a mexican strat, and a couple Squire's, but nothing like this. Ok, it's a 2017 American Special, with Texas Special pups, Jumbo frets, satin neck that plays like absolute butter, The build quality of this particular guitar is phenomenal!!! I can not get over how great it is, nor can I put it down. I've already changed the tuners to Fender lockers, next is either a new Trem, or new saddles, I haven't made my mind up yet. I have about 12 other guitars, that are generally shred/metal guitars, with a ton of distortion. I'll put it this way, I've used the clean channel on my amps more in the past 2 weeks, than I have in the last 5 years. So vey very happy Here she is!!
