I'm a telecaster guy. Everyone has a strat, but not this strat. I'm telling you, I don't like strats but this guitar is now the one I always reach for. I used to have a 2017 EBMM St. Vincent that had an all Rosewood neck that I absolutely loved and as soon as I saw this guitar with the shell pink(scientifically proven to have a better tone) I had to buy it and I was right to do so. I still don't consider myself a strat guy, I just love this guitar so much. It's amazingly ergonomic to play and the satin feel of the Rosewood neck is just phenomenal. The darker tones from the neck combined with that strat chiminess just creates this unexpected synergy. Absolutely buy it if you're on the fence. This is now my daily driver.
Easily one of the best guitars I've ever owned. The rosewood neck is warm and smooth, the pickups are next level, and the color/finish is just a bit unusual in the best possible way. Immediately clear this isn't run-of-the-mill. And working with CME couldn't have been better.
First of all, this was the first guitar I've purchased from CME and it was easily the best online purchasing experience I've ever had. I had a few questions about shipping so I called and was immediately connected to Geoff, no transfers or holds. He set me up and got my order placed in just a few minutes, thanks Geoff! As for this guitar, its great! It's still an American Pro II, has the push-push tone knob. The rosewood neck is beautiful, at least on the one I got and I like the more naturel feeling back. The description shows this comes with custom shop fat 50's pickups but I haven't notice much of a difference from the v-mods in my other strat. One thing I would point out is that the picture on CME's website is a little washed out, the guitar is a much darker shade of pink in natural light. I've added some pics here and I also noticed you can see images of the same guitar over on Anderton's website and it's a much more accurate depiction.
