The Standard Stratocaster Swirl model looks and sounds out of this world, with one of the most vividly arresting looks a Stratocaster has ever had—a swirling, multi-colored marbled finish that looks like something from another planet.
Each Standard Stratocaster Swirl body undergoes a unique finishing process, resulting in a design that is as random and one-of-a-kind as a thumbprint—simply put, no two are the same!
Features include an alder body, maple neck with "modern C" profile and satin urethane back finish, 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, single-coil neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching, three-ply black-white-black pickguard and black plastic control knobs, and a vintage-style six-saddle synchronized tremolo bridge.

The sustain on this guitar is amazing! The looks and sound of this Strat are incredible for this kind of money. The workmanship is real good. The ONLY negative thing I can say (and I can say this about any off-the-wall guitar) is that the frets definitely need to be dressed and smoothed. A few frets stuck a bit out of the side of the neck and you can tear yourself up after a while jam'n on this. The fret ends need to be smoothed out and the need a little more crowning and maybe one or two need to be brass-tapped down just a hair. But, I normally have all my guitar necks dressed by a qualified guitar luther or professional. Gene Liberty in Sheridan, IL is one of the best guitar luthers out there. Call and ask him if you need help. The pickups are actually damn good on this. I was going to put DiMarzio H3-H2 and DP100 setup on it, but these sound great. After a $60 fret job investment, the neck is like glass and it keeps perfect pitch much better than an off-the-wall USA strat, or even Pauls that come out of the factory. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I walked into the local music shop for strings and saw this guitar on the wall from across the room. I have never really been a Strat fan before but I love EVERYTHING about this guitar! The look is one of a kind. Looking to make this my front-line guitar for all my surf music!

This is my third guitar. I own a Jackson with active pickups and a Ibanez with passive. I've always wanted a Fender and now I see why. Coolest looking guitar I've ever seen. When I plugged it in it make me upset that I bought by other two before this one. The sound from this strat is amazing.

Bought this guitar for the look, but they are all individual and in my opinion, some look much better than others! My one plays great, sounds great, and looks awesome. Pleasantly suprised by the quality of the Mexican workmanship (am used to US made guitars), and have had loads of people ask me about it so far.
Should come with a gig bag though fender, hence 4 stars
