The Electric Pro’s satin-finished “C” shaped neck features lightly polished frets with carefully trimmed ends. This guitar is a smooth player despite not having a super low action, and its intonation is reasonably solid. Set flush to the body, the vibrato feels a little stiff, but it stays in tune quite well. We didn’t try setting it to float, although this could be easily done, if that’s your preference. Compared to a stock Fender Strat with three singlecoils, the Electric Pro is louder and beefier sounding, with a snappier dynamic response and appreciably more sustain. It sounds fat and meaty though an overdriven amp, but it also nails most of the sonic signatures of a Strat, including the requisite cluckiness in the dual-pickup settings. The Electric Pro’s Ferrari-like body sculpting and tilted headstock might prove difficult for Strat lovers to warm to, but this guitar definitely covers all the familiar sonic bases, and then some.
