Stevie arrived today, all nicely packed and safe in a nice sturdy box.
Opened it up, took her out of her Fender bag and there was a pristine Fender Stratocaster, only 2 tiny blemishes on her top edge under the arm which can polish out though they really can't be seen.
Tuned up with what looks like a new set of 10's on her, she has a lovley low action, perhaps a tad too low on the bottom E, as theres a tiny buzz if hit hard, but easy to resolve.
Feels like a near perfect set up Stratocaster.
Plugged into my amplitube amp on IPad, she sounds impressive...select a clean setting, turn up the tone and...
Those Texas specials are utterly utterly amazing.
This is a stunning guitar, just stunning, depite being a fan made copy of a very pricey custom guitar this has had love and money spent on it and it shows.
The sounds this thing makes are.....oh wow. It blows my much more expensive Suhr equiped Fender Strat Deluxe out of the water in terms of crunchy hot blues tone.
Quite possibly the best, and I mean THE best 200 quid I have ever spent.
