I've been locking for a strat which delivers classic strat sounds as well as more powerful sounds. And this model exactly matches my imagination. It lets me dial in numerous different sounds and, against my primarily concerns, the pickups sound superb. No need to take a bunch of different guitars on the road, this one is actually just enough.
With the LSR roller nut it stays in tune forever and the compound-radius fingerboard feels like a dream.
No regrets here, in fact this guitar is one of the best guitars I've ever played and it will certainly guide me through the rest of my musician life.
This one is definitely a big step forward.

This Guitar arrived last Friday 14th.
Color: Sadly there are only three color for this Design, but the Sunburst is really cool, I like to see a little bit the kind of wood it has.
Playability: I like guitars when the strings are not so high from the frets, this guitar has that. It doesnt matter where the fingers are, it really sounds great. Note by Note, you can hear that. Frets above the 12th fret on the 6th string, the clarity of the notes, are pretty good, first guitar I know, with this.
Sound: I was not sure at the beginning about the Fender Twin Head Humbuckers and the N3, but I thought, "I will pay at lot for this guitar, so I hope those pickups will really work." Finally I stopped searching in Pickup Catalogs. In many of them they say that this or this pickup sounds like a Strat, well why not to buy a Strat and stop with this shxxxx?.
When I heard the pickups the first time, the Treble was really high, I thought, "Well, what people say about the painful treble sound of Fender guitars is true." I was disappointed. In the afternoon I tried again, and I found out that my little daughter was playing with the knobs of the amp, the treble was at 10 o'clock. I changed, and it was when I could really hear this guitar making her work.
For clean sound it is great, but for metal it is better.
Frets and Arm: Just a little bit of Fretbuzzing I found out, but it depends how hard I play. I remember a guy who always told me to try a guitar without an Amp, if it resonates great and long, it will make a nice sound with the amp. He was right.
Great guitar, and good idea for none Vintage guys.
Soon I hope to make a review on Youtube.
Body: Well balanced, thick but not to heavy, maybe because of the type of wood.
God bless you all!!!

This is the Strat I have been waiting for.
If I had designed my perfect Stratocaster this is almost exactly the spec I would have chosen.
I have 3 other Strats (1 Mex Standard, 1 U.S Standard, and another U.S Deluxe) with various pickup combinations,
but the HSH combination is perfect for the music I am currently playing.
The set-up was pretty good straight from the box and only needed very minor tweaking to suit my personal tastes.
I was able to gig it straight away and it felt like an old friend. The tuning was very stable and the Whammy returned to pitch
perfectly - no doubt helped by the Roller nut.
It did however have a couple of very minor flaws - a small dent and some file marks on the fingerboard, but these had no effect
on the playability.
Overall this is a real professional working guitar and should give me many happy years of service

I just got my Silverburst HSH Stratocaster a couple of weeks ago, and it is the best Stratocaster I've ever had my hands on.
It plays like a dream.
The instrument is just awesome with features you normally find on more expensive models.
Well done Fender, really fine craftmanship.
