Missing Twang

By Mary Miller

from Chattanooga, TN

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I was surprised that the was little difference between my standard stratocaster and the JV strat. It actually had less sound to it. So much for Tex Mex pickups.

This guitar cannot be beaten

By Tim-vhx.f

from Meriden,CT

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

The Fender Jimmie Vaughan strat is an absolute blast to play. By far the nicest feature is the soft v maple neck. The v is perfect and with medium jumbo frets you can really dig in when you bend. Pickups are really nice. The middle pickup is reversed so you get noise cancellation in the 2 and 4 position. The bridge is hot! Definitly have enough grit there when you need to get a little dirty. Neck pickup is very creamy and has a great bluesy sound to it. People complain about the single ply pickguard, but it doesnt bother me. This guitar is modeled after a 50"s strat and thats how they did it back then. The Clapton strat has a 1 ply pickguard as well. It's a classic look. If you are looking into this strat by all means order it. Between playability, looks, and tonal range, it is able to hang with guitars that are twice its price. If its good enough for Mr. Jimmie Vaughan than it should be good enough for anyone. Pick it up and play it hard!

Awesome!

By John-rhf95

from Missoula MT

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This guitar is completely under-rated! With its combination of Tex Mex pick ups and extra hot bridge pickup, not only can it produce clean bluesy sounds, it can really scream when you need it to. The soft-v neck, medium jumbo frets and vintage feel make it an excellent guitar for the price.

Best Strat for your money, period.

By Pete G.

from NY

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Vintage, American hardware, wiring, and Tex-Mex pups coupled with a neck that begs to be played...what more can you possibly want that this guitar doesn't have? Yeah, ok, the pickguard it comes with is the weakpoint but it's only a $30 remedy. Stop by your local store and play one. You'll understand.

Not very good at all

By Mitch S.

from Chicago, Ill

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I've been playing various guitars for fun and professionally for over 35 years. When I gave my '63 strat to my daughter I decided to try one of the new budget priced "Hotter" fenders for fun on the advices from friends. My friends said for the price this is a really great 'Hot' guitar which would go great with some of the vintage and blues I play. Well, I've had this Fender for a year now and it's okay but I really don't recommend it. As boxed, this is an Okay rhythm guitar but not the hot lead as implied. With the light gauge strings from the factory, the highs are very very thin on any setting with either a Marshal, Fender, Vox, Messa, Crate, or Line 6 amps. Therefore, to give it more high end punch I tried medium to heavy gauge strings in the Jimmy Vaughn settings. This turned out to be a disaster. After almost ruining the guitar I took it to the shop that I've used for over 25 years to have it professionally setup and they could not bring it anywhere into proper specs without the fear of severe damage also. The neck and hardware is not stiff enough nor is it strong enough. To compensate for the fading I switched the bottom pick-up to a Fender Custom '69 and the other 2 to the new SCN pickups with S-1 Switching using a Vox AC30 amp and the Tech21 SansAmp Classic peddle. Then the guitar came alive as billed. I could now finally get the advertised "hot" sounds with tolerable high end thinning by using the recommended Fender stringing arrangment. So after a year of experimenting I do use it for some blues and vintage gigging. And the 'Hot' pick-ups were put into an old Fender body that can support heavier stringing and it does have the 'Hot' sound as billed by Fender.

Great for everything

By John-hPy5l

from New York New York

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I've owned several guitars higher and lower priced than this guitar. This guitar is one of the best I've ever played. It has the best neck, but I like thick necks. Its tonal possibilities are endless. I play modern rock and I have no problem with distortion and in position 2 and 4 I have had no feedback problems playing through my peavey 5150 and through my marshal VS265. I hear great milky smooth tones and the one upgrade I made was a hot rail in the bridge for even hotter tones. I love it. It stays in tune and has the nicest tone you can find for that price. I even sold my Gibson Les Paul classic for a back up and to pay off my first one. The best ever.

Great Player for the money

By M-JyRwV

from Madison, WI

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I love everything about this Guitar! You can't beat it for the price. It sounds great on all settings and delivers tone that you find on guitars costing hundreds (maybe thousands) more. My only complaint as has been mentioned on other reviews, the one ply pickguard, which is easily remedied.

Perfect

By Dieter

from Pittsburgh

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is the perfect axe in every way! The neck is shaped just so that you never want to let go. The weight distribution is right-on. The action is set perfectly. I have no complaints about this axe except it comes with a stock one ply pickguard which can easily be swapped out for about $15.

INCREDIBLE!

By cjd

from albuquerque, nm usa

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This guitar is perfect for playing the blues. This guitar has several features only available on higher end artist models, and for the price is great. I run it through a line6 ax212 and it sounds incredible in almost any setting. After proper setup, this guitar plays perfectly. Even with the maple neck, it's great for playing fast solos and leads.
