Good value - Reviews Squier Standard Stratocaster

Value For Money : Excellent
- Manufacturing Japan, it must date from 1994 (Logo on the handle: Fender Squier big and small) around but has hardly been used by the previous owner. This is a Black Cherry Burst model I think (see attached photo found on the net) because I have not found it to AF.
- It is equipped with Floyd Rose II bridge that takes pretty good deal.
- The handle must be maple rosewood fingerboard. - The microphone set has been changed by a set EMG Steve Lukather it a little more modern guitar again.
- It has a 5-way switch, volume knob and a tone, which is not like the standard strats but it suits me very well.
- She has a gorgeous color that I love (see photo that is not mine, but it gives an idea)

UTILIZATION

- The neck is thin enough properly set it is very enjoyable to play, the finish is very good, no finished abnormally fret. Ergonomics is that of a standard strat, no more or less with the same access to acute.
- In tone with the EMG audio becomes slightly more crystalline, more acute in some cases too.

SOUNDS

Position 1: we have a good slamming his strat with a serious touch / midrange higher position 2. Position 2: we recover the typical sound and clear. Position 3: a more medium but used in some cases.
Position 3: I rarely use and I must say that I miss when looking fairly sound "country" (which may have on SSS models). Position 5: So the humbucker (EMG85) AC-blowing what to with mild or heavy distortion / saturation, compression as it should and little buzz.
I play on a rack eleven connected to an amp and cabinet Rocktron Velocity EVM12L.

OVERALL OPINION

This makes it a very versatile guitar but sounds closer to a Stratocaster anyway, making it a "super" strat! It may be less comfortable in his 60 'but is doing anyway with honors. It's not a guitar to 2000 euros but will do in 90% of cases. This is a good quality / price ratio nothing to do with what is happening now. I repeat that choice of course!
