SSS standard strat configuration.

Vintage Style Synchronized Tremolo.

Bolt on 21 fret rosewood topped neck,modern C shape, well made neck and fret job, intonation fine. Fingerboard radius is flatter than my Mex strat and 1 kg lighter overall. Enclosed machine heads non locking type.

5-Position Blade switching, standard , 1 vol, 2 tone pots mounted on a single ply pickguard. The high output single coils 6.3, 6.7 and 6.85 K ohms are fitted with steel backing plates for extra boost. I fitted shielding foil to the underside of the pickguard and eliminated hum.

This guitar is light and resonant. Body depth is 40mm and made out of a white and light solid wood that has a thin laminate applied top and bottom, not seen that before. Neck pocket well made a smooth tight fit.The hardware is durable and after 14 years, no rust, some components marked made in Japan but no indication of where it was assembled. I was second owner, and it had a few alignment issues that indicate a sloppy approach in initial assembly, the strings not quite centred on neck and pickups to strings. I moved the pickguard to set the pickups under strings and live with the rest as more visual than performance issue.

You don't need to plug in to practice with the Ranger, plenty of volume and tone options available, all while looking cheap.
