I had a super-sweet Jimmie Vaughan MiM Strat. There it is, in white. Even with the pickup swap, the whole thing cost $200. The neck was terrific. If "MIA" Strats were "better", I could not see how. This thing was great. Then, I got the MiA Strat Plus you see up there. I sold the MiM. It was a lot closer to its USA counterpart than an Epi Les Paul is to a Gibson.
