    Great guitar, was set up really well except for the pickup heights all being too close to strings for me and all at the same height, once those were adjusted the guitar began to sing a lot more. String action was lower than I usually have it so adjusted that as well. To be fair those adjustments most customers could do anyway, so no biggie. Main thing is the neck is great as is the playability, The guitar quality is top-notch and very well built. Weight is a bit heavy compared to my other 3 strats, not sure if that's just my other two being light or if it really is a bit heavier than average for that type of guitar, not heavy that it is too much though. The guitar stays in tune well but not perfect. I prefer the bridge to not float anyway, so once I set that the tuning was perfect and has stayed that way. However, if you want it to stay as a floating trem then the tuning is gonna go off a bit now and then. I could definitely live with it as it's well within what I would say was acceptable especially for a floating setup. And it all depends on how much and how hard you abuse your whammy bar. The atomic Coral colour(shell pink to be precise is what it really is) is lovely. The fit and finish was perfect all over actually, not a blemish anywhere. All in all a very nice and easy playing guitar. I have seen some people suggest the pickups sound the same as each other and it's a one-trick pony tone-wise. It's really not true. I suggest if it's like mine, to adjust the pickups and string height and this guitar sings. You will find the sound between the pickups is different and noticeable when you change giving you all the tones you want for any genre and the string height if adjusted a bit higher will help with that too. I am surprised just how vintage this guitar sounds and yet plenty of rock and modern tones can be had as well. I prefer vintage warmer sounding guitars and this does that really well. Just a great guitar all round and a proper strat with a little twist here and there.
