Avis Fender American Vintage '57 Stratocaster Ash - White Blonde Maple
1 personne a trouvé cet avis utile
- Le modèle exact c'est "American Vintage 1957 Commemorative Stratocaster®".
Fabriquée aux US.
21 fret, 3 micros simples american vintage.
Manche en V.
Mecaniques et chevalet type 50s.
Dans les goodies, on notera les mécaniques dorées, et la vernis blanc transparent au travers duquel on voit les nervures du bois.
Le selecteur est 3 positions (mais comme à l'époque on peut choper les 2 position intermédiaires), un selecteur 5 positions est fourni avec.
C'est vraiment une belle guitare.
- _Manche/accès aux aigus/ ergonomie : c'est une strat, donc vraiment très bien.
Le vernis est super doux que ce soit sur le corp ou sur le manche, c'est très agréable.
Ce qui est aussi étonnant, c'est le poids de la guitare, extremement léger.
- Cette guitare à LE son typique de la strat comme on l'aime. C'est hallucinant et c'est un grand plaisir immédiatement. Un son à la dire strait/pink floyd/eric johnson.
Elle est superbe en son clair, et en crunch. Elle conviendra au blues/country/rock/rock style anglais actuel. Elle est pas géniale avec les grosses distos, donc pour hard rock et métal, c'est vraiment pas ca (mais qui acheterai cette guitare pour ce type de musique?).
Sur un twin avec un ts9 c'est énorme. Même sur les marshalls orientés rock (TSL) elle rend vraiment bien.
J'ai 3 autres stratocasters, et en la faisant écouter à des amis amateurs de musique, mais qui n'y connaissent rien en guitare, ils ont direct entendu la différence. Ca sonne du tonerre.
Dernier détail mais pas de la moindre importance, les micros sont étonnament silencieux.

- J'adore cette guitare, c'est sans doute la meilleur strat que j'ai jamais joué, dans cet ordre de prix (avec la signature eric johnson). Si vous rechercher le son typique stratocaster c'est cette guitare qu'il vous faut (ou la johnson).
Le rapport qualité/prix n'est pas mauvais, surtout si on l'achète en Allemagne. Elle est quand même 500euros plus cher qu'une american deluxe, ce qui me semble exagéré. Petit plus: ce modèle ne sera produit qu'en 2007, ce qui en fera vite une rareté.
Vous aimez le son strat, vous ne jouez pas de hard ou de metal? cette guitare est sans doute l'un des meilleurs choix du marché. A acheter sans hésiter.
- One of the single greatest accomplishments in musical history. Fender is probably the biggest music company in the world when it comes to amp and guitars. They have been played all over the world from beginner learning guitar players to the best professionals in the world. The Fender Stratocaster is easily the most recognized guitar and one for the most versatile guitars in the world.
These guitars have been played by almost every guitar player in the word at one time or another. Any guitar who has ever been playing the guitar longer than a few year most likely have picked up owned a Fender Stratocaster at some point. They have been feature on countless recordings and touring from every stage under the sun. They even have a tribute festival dedicated to the guitar it self for its 50th anniversary. So to say that these guitars has left an impression on the musical world would be an understatement.

- When it comes to the sound of a Strat there really is no other. I hear guys talk about finding a Strat sounding guitar and look to Suhr and Anderson and completely bypass the sound that started it all. The sound is everyone from Jimmy to John Mayor and in between. The tone from this guitar is very good. It can get beefy with the humbuckers and lighten it up for some single coil action. This is an extremely versatile guitar with the 5 way selector and humbucking and single coil operation.
I play rock music and this guitar is great for my style. I love Charvels and will probably put this guitar down when I get one of those. I prefer humbuckers to the single coils.

- This a guitar that I will have forever. These guitars are no longer available new. They have the same guitar but just in different colors on many retailers websites. If I ever buy another Fender Strat I will have someone take off the lacquer on the back of the neck. I would recommend this guitar to any guitar player. Everyone needs a Fender Strat in their arsenal. A great everyday guitar and a players dream. So many tonal possibilities that will accompany anything musical genre from pop to modern rock.
- This guitar is basically trying to replicate that old school '57 mojo. It has an alder body with a maple neck, a maple fretboard with 21 frets, black dot inlays, vintage six screw tremolo system, SSS configuration, standard neck joint, one volume, two tones and a three or five way switch.
- The neck on this guitar felt pretty awesome. It's a big neck compared to most modern Fenders out there, but I enjoyed it. The frets on this were nice, too. They were properly crowned, and there were no edges sticking out that could potentially cut your hand while moving up and down. The neck joint was nice and tight on this model, and that was a welcomed addition with so many Fenders out there with slightly sloppy neck joints. The radius wasn't my favorite thing in the world, but I usually always hate the Fender radius because it's too round.
- This guitar had the five way switch already installed in it. The pickups themselves are very much a classic type of sound. They had this really cool woody kind of sound going on that was real apparent when you started adding just a touch of gain. I wouldn't use these for metal or even hard rock because they're pretty low output, but it all depends on what kind of setup you like. They definitely can't do metal, though. The cleans on these were glorious, and the overdriven tones were to die for. Think of that classic SRV kind of tone at times. The five way switch is a huge upgrade, too. The in between positions are amazing for funk and cleans.

- The guitar just oozes with mojo. However, be absolutely sure that you like the radius. That was a pretty big deal breaker for me, but considering how great the guitar sounded, I couldn't rate it down too low. Also, the guitar isn't quite as versatile as other guitars in the Fender lineup.
