I just bought mine 3 days ago. I saw these when they first started coming out. I had played one but didn't think it played or sounded that well for the money. I saw one at Guitar Center and it sounded real nice and easy to play. I was impressed. I had some stuff to trade so I got a good deal. I love the fact that is lightweight an has real good tone. And it cranks when I plug it into my amp. I've always liked fender guitars. Leo was my guitar hero when I was growing up. Thanks Fender. D.Jammer

As a loyal Fender customer I think this guitar is a real hoot. Where else do you get a piece of history like a Strat neck(excellent) and Strat Body shape for $300 dollars? It sounds okay acoustically for practice, but sounds really good through any Fender tube amp. Just watch the settings, acoustics will tend to resonate. It plays great with the Strat neck once you correct the super high action, (sand down the bottom of the bridge to the correct string height). This has a beautiful rosewood fretboard, not richlite or bakelite but real rosewood with a rosewood bridge. Be sure to get one before they are gone forever. This is a must have for any Fender devotee especially for $300.00. Keep on Rockin'.

I bought my Stratacoustic several years ago as a retirement gift to myself and it has become my main acoustic guitar ever since,even though I own several more expensive models.The feel of the neck is unequaled for an acoustic due to the famously comfortable Strat neck and the action is perfect right out of the box.The glass fiber back is even more comfortable than the best of the shallow-bowl backed Ovations and allows endless hours of comfortable playing.The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars in every category was that when played acoustically, the tone and volume are a bit on the thin side and far from the tone and projection of a dreadnaught.When the guitar is played through an amp you can easily forgive and forget any of its acoustic shortcomings because when put through a good amp it absolutely booms out the most tremendous tones that you could imagine.The size of this guitar belies its ability to ring out heavy bass and mids that you'd expect to hear coming from a D-28 or a SJ-200 plus the highs ring out clearly too.When I plugged into my Blues Jr. for the first time the monster tone that came from it-even from this small an amp-just amazed me.The Fishman electronics do a more than adequate job of turning this guitar into way more than just a pretty face. I wouldn't hesitate for one second to use the Stratacoustic as my main acoustic not only at small intimate settings but due to the incredible fidelity of the amplified tone I would gladly use it at a venue on the scale of Woodstock....should I be so lucky,lol.
