    i have a few mim strats my favorite being my first one; a deluxe super strat that i modified w/ custom shop pickups and kept the switch to activate the bridge. i would put up against any strat for sound and playability(of course i have worn it in since 1999)lol
    you have to ask yourself: strats made by mexicans in mexico or mexicans in california? personally i think the mexican strats are awesome guitars!

    if you want a high qualitly fender go for a mij strat in my opinion they'r better quality than the usa made strats and they cost less too bloody hard to get a hold of but its well worth the wait.

    Well said ... I totally agree ... :applause:

    My MIM Powerhouse Strat (mid boost) was a nice sounding guitar, but my MIJ Fender ST54-120DMC kicks ass ...
    CS specs and a typical strat sound at an affordable price ... purchased in Japan ( USED ) ... :slash:

    ... the alternative could be an old Tokai ST80 ... from '79-'80 ... but they are rare and sought after models and ... expensive ...
