I'm a total novice and this looked the ideal way of seeing if I could learn to play guitar without spending £1500 plus on a genuine Fender Strat. (which I will buy if I can play at least reasonably well, though I have no illusions of being another David Gilmour or Steve Vie, especially at my age :) ) . The guitar is extremely well made, and the tone is nothing short of amazing and sounds great even through the amp included. Intonation is spot on, and I only had to adjust tuning and string height to get the best feel for my beginners fingers.I added internal shielding which has completely eliminated hum pickup and "Gilmour neck pickup switch" as cheap upgrades seen on the ‘net. Very highly recommended as a starter kit!
This is the most popular shape of electric guitar dating back to the early 50?s. It has been played by all the great guitarist including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Rory Gallagher, Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood?..
The Stratocaster is a versatile guitar, usable for most styles of music and has been used in many genres, including country, rock, pop, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, punk, and heavy metal.
This Stretton Payne Strat has a solid basswood body with a bolt on maple neck giving it that traditional rock sound.
The guitar has 3 single coil pick-ups with cut glass precision output. The selector switch gives you 5 options for using the pick-ups and you can dial in the tone and volume with the controls on the guitar. The vibrato system gives you the option to use the tremolo arm to add vibrato to the sound by changing the tension of the strings with a flick of the hand. The neck can be fully adjusted with a two way truss rod making the action really easy to set.
A great all round work horse of a guitar weighing in at 3.6kg.

My son loves this. Looks great, excellent buy for beginners.
his guitar combo arrived in Greece within 6 days! The packaging was intact. This alone was brilliant.I bought the package to upgrade from an Fender acoustic guitar that I had taught my self to play. I didn't expect too much as the price was excellent. Boy, was I wrong. The guitar is beautifully made, heavy and substantial.
Great package , grandson is delighted with it
Fast delivery, was a bit wary of buying without trying but what an exceptional guitar! quality sound. I am very happy with this purchase
