Not had a problem with that myself with my 300. I'd say it was twangy, but not really more so than most Strats. But I do tend to use vibrato a lot for sustained notes, rather than just hitting it and letting it decay, and that'll naturally tend to keep the note going.

TBH, I suspect any difference will be in the instrument itself, not the electronics. Given the state of the guitar's construction, that's likely to be the problem.

And FWIW, I got significantly-improved playability on my 300 by carefully taking sandpaper to the fretboard for a bit of reprofiling. Ideally I'd have defretted it and refretted it, of course, but the quick-and-dirty option has worked OK.

I believe the more expensive 600 has a lefty version. But like most makers, the mass-produced low-end versions don't cater for lefties.
