          I played a ton of strats before buying the XV870. All manner of Squiers, Standards and several of the higher-end MIM Deluxe Series.



          I ended up wanting the Deluxe Players strat (it played the best to me and I was intested in noiseless pups for line-direct recording), but I wasn't interested in shelling out $600 for one.



          The XV870 has the same fretboard radius as the deluxe players, but I think the neck is a bit chunkier. I love the neck, though I did end up taking some of the poly off the back of the neck to slick it up some, but I do this on all my guitars.



          Out of the box:



          Fretwork was better than what I was seeing the Fender Standards, though they did need to be polished up. The first thing I do with a new guitar is clean it and set it up the way I like it, so this was no issue.



          Hardware is comparable to the Squiers. If I had bought a Squier, I would have eventually changed out the tuners. Same goes for the XV870. I have Wilkinson locking tuners on it now, and it was definitely an improvement.



          The electronics is where the XV870 kicks ass. The pups sound as good as Fender Standards to me - great quack in noisless positions 2 & 4 due to RW middle pup, and just a little hotter than vintage.



          Like I said, I wanted the Fender Player's strat (but I also wanted a project), so I ended up with:



          Xaviere XV870

          GFS Neovin Power Rock pups (pearloid pickguard and rear cover)

          Wilkinson Vintage trem w/pop-in arm

          Wilkinson locking tuners

          Roller saddles

          Roller string trees

          GFS strap locks



          I have about $450 into this with the case and upgrade parts. I'll never sell it, and everywhere I play it I get asked about it.

                  You've been added. Nice to see an XV 650 in action.

                          What do you think about the 620? I just bought the 610 with the Dream 180s and I'm really impressed. Thinking about adding the 620 in Monaco Yellow to my collection.



                          What are the pickups like on the 620?

                                The 620 is a real player! I just had to re-solder the pots. I was turning the volume up/down, and it actually became loose and the whole pot turned, so 2 wires became unsoldered. Jay (xaviere) was nice enough to tell me exactly where the wires went, to get me back in business. That is the only problem I have ever had with it, and I've had it for almost a year. It's probably my favorite of the Xaviere's. The pickups are not too hot either, great for country, blues and rock! Very versatile guitar!



                                I have money saved up for a 835, but wold like to order 2 guitars at once to save on shipping, any suggestions?
