Fender Standard Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar

Fender Standard Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric GuitarUpgraded version. Alder body. Standard hardware.

Alder body, 3 single-coil pickups and standard synchronized tremolo — it’s where the tradition began and still carries on today.  Check the price.

Features:
It gets some pretty decent classic rock sounds, and with the right pickup selection you can get a decent metal tone out of the pups. The neck is fast and the action came set perfect. With that being said…. This guitar was made very well, it plays Great and looks Fantastic! It makes you want to play it.

Quality:
The natural wood grain is clearly visible under the lighter brown portions of the burst. The maple neck is strong and ‘fast’ and the electronics/tuners do their job without any problems so far.

Tone/volume knobs and switch all work just fine. The pickups aren’t too bad, but it really depends on taste. With the stock strings and stock pickups, it’s a decent guitar. It really comes down to taste. Right now, it sounds beautifully bluesy to me with everything stock, but the pickups can be a bit muddy and tinny at the same time.

Sound:
There is a difference between ceramic and alnico magnet pickups. It isn’t just the differences in their magnetic qualities. It is the fact that alnico magnet pickups have 6 small magnets and ceramic magnet pickups have 1 magnet with 6 steel pole pieces. If the presence or absence of tone pickups in the chain affects the tone.

Value:
A great guitar for the money spent. Check latest price.

Ease of Use:
These aren’t very well crafted. that translates to an uncomfortable neck profile and so-so frets. But overall its OK.

Overall:
Great for beginners and for long time users, the recommend changing the pickups and tuners.

ESP LTD Standard AX50 Electric Guitar

ESP LTD Standard AX50 Electric GuitarThe ESP LTD AX50 is an EXTREME guitar to fit your EXTREME style of music! The wild AX series body style will definitely get the audiences attention. But that’s just the start. The 0 AX5 has an agathis body, a 24-fret bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and dot inlays, black hardware, a string thru body tune-o-matic bridge, and an ESP LH-100 pickup set.

Feature:
It basically has what you need for a beginner or pro. Two humbuckers, tone and volume knobs, and the guitar comes with a good magazine so you con buy more stuff.
could do with a tremolo arm and some cool fret markers, but you can put those on yourself if you got the kaching$.

The only reason i gave this guitar a 9 is because it came with a toggle pickup switch which you normally not a fan of but that doesn’t change anything. This guitar in silver and the black hardware on this beast is sweet. Pretty sweet looking, No accessories…. but that’s okay.

Quality:
It is a nice build , a bolt-on neck, but bolted on very good. it is matte and not shiny and wall scrapes will happen and show much easier , as it is matte. The build is strong and parts do not come loose easily.

Everything seems fine here, my only complaint is that the guitar just seems too light, which makes it feel quite cheap. As far as the actual quality of the guitar is concerned though, everything seems great except the tuning machines are a little sloppy and not as smooth, however, they’ve had no tuning problems or the like. There practically steal cables.

Sound:
This guitar actually sounds really good for the price, especially with high gain using the bridge pickup. I own an esp eclipse as well, and unfortunately the eclipse just blows this thing out of the water. This guitar is definitely made for metal or hardrock. some lead work, but probably best suited to rhythm playing. But for the price, you really can’t go wrong as far as sound is concerned.

Value:
This product is ridiculously cheap for how sweet this guitar is. Great product for the price. Probably not worth $250. They own a BC.RICH warlock and i got that for $50 less. Check latest price.

Ease of Use:
The guitar has amazing playability, extremely fast neck, 25.5 scale, great fret spacing. The boy actually won an ax in a contest on the ESP website, so the boys down there did a custom setup on mine, d’addario 10-46’s, no fret buzz, low action, needless to say its perfect to play.

It is actually very comfy to play. For sitting. It has a nice rounded leg spot and for standing, its still comfy. a comfy strap would be a good idea, too. The neck is nice and relatively flat, thus making it easier to hold. So easy to use standing up.

Desirability:
There are guitars that are much better out there, but don’t get you wrong this is one great guitar!!! Everything is sexy about this guitar. And so freak cheap.

Overall:
Experience was great, especially the time it took to get here(3 days!)the price(sweet and low) and the look(absolutely amazing). It is an overall amazing guitar and the boy highly recommend it. The boy would slap a tremolo bridge on there and rock away to high heaven. The thing you like most about it is the look and playability sound is a bit weak. , really light, good for gigging, comfortable to play for the most part., The boy least would have to be that it’s too good to be true.

If you are a beginner you want this AX, if you consider yourself pro you might want to do some more shopping for a higher quality guitar. But if you want it go for it and buy it.
