This thing is amazing. The custom shop 50's with the neck sound amazing. Plays like an absolute dream, the neck is super sexy and smooth, trem is great. Stays in tune. You should definitely buy one. I wish I could buy 2. You would think this is a custom shop

I've been searching for standard strat with. Rosewood neck for a long time. I tried a few at L&M and some of them lacked resonance or sustain. Some had ugly discoloration on the neck (there's a certain type of mold that can happen on rosewood thicker than quarter inch). Also it's a bit on the pricey side for a strat. However I asked at one of the stores to open a new box and his thing was just amazing. It's the most resonant strat I've ever had and the neck is very dark. The fender logo etched on is really different than the norm. I wish no one else buys this as I want to be....unique

I tried this guitar out A/B with a nearly identical LE American Standard, same body, pickups, strings, everything but the neck. I was literally SHOCKED by the difference in tone. Given it is $500 more, but I think it is totally worth it, especially when you think of what PRS charges for a solid rosewood neck. Go try it next to a regular neck, you'll be blown away

Has a very distinctive and warmer balanced tone from other strats I've played. The neck feels great, very smooth. Pickups are great. The only thing I had to change were the tremolo springs due to all the weird alternate tunings I do but that's just me, love this guitar to death!!

I saw this online, and had to check it out. It looks far better in person as the rosewood just pops, and the 3 tone is darker then normal, and shows off the grains of the wood. I plugged in to a supersonic as thats what i have at home, and holy crap!!!! The tones are incredible. I just got off the phone with Rob, and viola! I pick it up next Wednesday. So So stoked!!!!!
