Fresh from scoring my first MIJ Bass guitar, I stumbled upon this MIJ hardtail Strat at a ridiculously affordable price! This is a no-frills design with 2 humbuckers, 3-position switch, volume and tone, string through body.

It has what FGN calls the 'Circle Fretting System' (CFS). If you look closely, each fret is very slightly curved so that they are concave towards the nut, the idea being that since the string spacing widens from the nut to the bridge, CFS will allow each string to cross each fret perfectly perpendicular to improve intonation.

I don't know how true that is, and it does take a little bit of getting used to, but this guitar on the whole feels and plays amazing and sounds great.

Thanks!

I have a lot of Strat style guitars, but this is my first hardtail. I gotta say I should have gotten a hardtail sooner! It is so much easier to play with the strings in tune!
