I'm got out of the US Air Force after Vietnam and have lived in the Philippines with my Filpina wife now for about two years. I read reviews about Ocampos guitars here in the Philippines and decided to have one made. This guitar costed me around 8,000 Filipine Pesos and that's about $175.00. Best $175.00 I ever spent. This was made just two months ago, right here in the Philippines. It is called a Miltone because the guy who made it is Miltone Ocampos. It is made by hand. 22 Frets. Solid top, made out of Ash. Has two tone and one volume control just like a Fender strat. In fact, I gave him my Fender Strat to go by, but I wanted a Floyd Rose tremelo system, showed him a picture of one and he did a perfect job. Has 5 way selector switch and three HOT single coil pickups. I told him I wanted a metal strat and he wound these pickups and they are absolutely incredible. Ocampos made pickups, with a mid range boost like a Fender Deluxe Powerhouse Strat. Body is Ash, neck is maple, finish is high gloss black with a white/black/white 3 ply pickguard. Body style is stratocaster, perfect copy. Has great weight to it. I like a heavier guitar, something I can feel. Floyd Rose Tremelo, grover tuners, all the hardware is black, even the tuners, no chrome at all on this guitar, which is what I asked for. Nice C shaped neck, very fast, medium frets, rosewood fretboard. Came with a hardshell case, made by the man himself. Folks, this guitar is every bit if not better than my Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster. I gotta give it a 10.

I play heavy metal but not the new stuff, I'm talking Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Cream, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple and then I also have rockabilly and country moods. This guitar gets it all perfectly. The cool thing about this guitar maker is he asks you to play for him and he judges by the way you play what kind of guitar you need. He even measures your hands and arms and height and stuff, so it is like having a tailor made guitar. The other guys who wrote these reviews were not fuckin bullshitting. This guys work is awesome. I use this with a VOX AC 30 for gigging and have a Washburn Bad Dog 25R at home. No effects, just a foot switch for channels. No noise. Overwound pickups, single coils, but no noise at all. Makes my Fender sound noisy though and it has the Vintage Noiseless Pickups. Has nice twang at the bridge position, gets darker with each switching to a nice black sabbath dark tone on the neck pickup. This guitar does it all and the Floyd Rose and Grover tuners, well, you can wail away on this mother fucker for days and it won't go out of tune. Most versatile guitar I have ever owned. I play it more than any of my other guitars and I have quite a selection. I love everything about it.

Guitar was set up perfectly because he sets it up the way you want it right there on the spot. Action nice and low, fast, no fret buzz at all. Pickups adjusted perfectly. This guitar is flawless in every respect. You could not touch this guitar for less than $1,200 in the states.

It withstands live playing 3 nights a week. Built like a tank. I have gigged with it without a backup. GREAT!!! What else can I say.

Absolutely awesome. Tailor makes the guitars, guarantees it forever. Now, don't get me wrong, he don't make it in one day. It took him a month, but the wait was well worth it. His warranty is for life.

I have been playing since the late 60's. Also have a Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster, Fender American Standard Telecaster and an Epiphone Les Paul Standard. This guitar puts them all to shame. I would cry if I lost it or it were stolen, but then again, it is less than $200. I am telling you, it is worth a round trip airplane ticket to come here, have a guitar made and take it back to the states. The quality, sound, looks and playability are fucking incredible.
