Cheap Stratocaster vs. Expensive Stratocaster:  Can You Hear The Difference?

Cheap Stratocaster vs. Expensive Stratocaster: Can You Hear The Difference?

"Today we're taking a look at different ranges of Stratocasters-- a "cheap" one, an "expensive" one, and something right in between. The Squier Affinity, Fender Player (Plus Top), and American Professional II Stratocasters all follow the same formula: 3 single coil pickups, tremolo system, satin neck finish; but at 3 distinctly different prices, can you hear the difference? Take a listen to the demos of each of these, and see which one you think might be right for you."

Fender American Pro II HSS vs. SSS The Difference a Humbucker Makes

Today we're looking at a couple great Fender Stratocasters from the American Professional II series-- one of which has three single coils (SSS) and the other has 2 single coils and a humbucker (HSS). The addition of the humbucker adds a whole new sonic palette that is available to the Stratocaster, but is that tone right for you?

Taylor AD17 vs 317e : Take a Look at the Most Affordable USA-Made Taylor.

This comparison was a no brainer for us, and for many of you-- since the inclusion of the American Dream series in Taylor's lineup, we've wanted to compare it to the relatively-new 317e, which is another great Grand Pacific body style guitar. Both of these guitars are American made round-shoulder dreadnoughts with V-Class bracing; however, their wood pairings and adornments differ slightly. The AD17 utilizes a spruce and ovangkol pairing, while the 317e uses spruce and sapele. Take a listen to these demos and let us know which one you prefer! 0:00​ Intro 0:42​ Specs 10:38​ Demos 18:00​ Wrapping Up Shop Guitars - https://www.alamomusic.com/guitars/​
