Hi,
Using the stock pickups it is a very good guitar.
I traded my Mk1 Katana head in for a mk2 head and use the power amp input
which bypasses the preamp panel and effect loop giving a good flat response
with no colouration perfect for bringing out the true tone of amp and echo simulator pedals.
Carl.

There were two Mex FSR Fiesta Red Strats. The first one was 'Classic' series & issued in 2017 & came with the Tweed hardcase , Gold hardware, & Fender CS '56 pickups & cost me £738 .

The second was issued in 2019 & came with Gold hardware, no hardcase, & came with CS Fat '50s pickups, which I did not purchase. It costs £699

They both appear to be decent guitars.
