The local/national music shop here in Canada had an inventory blow out sale. So I went by about 30 min before they opened, only to realize people had been waiting since 8 am! I'd seen a used 2011 (I believe) MIM Candy Apple Red Strat on the list for $329 CAD. Always been a Les Paul/two hum buckers person, but figured at this point, I needed a Strat to round out my collection. I managed to get in quite quickly, saw this on the used guitar rack. It was basically brand new. Not a nick on it. Just some fingerprint smudges. I plugged it in and it sounded good though the strings were dead. I showed it to the place I get my guitars set up and was confirmed, I did pretty well on this. Fret ends are out a bit, so going to try to humidify and see where that gets me. I now, definitely know what the strat sound is. Told my wife...wait til she sees the Valentines gift she got me! Question for the strat folks regarding the trem - I changed the strings and think this got a bit higher. Does the bridge look right? Should it be this high? I understand floating the bridge, but is this a bit much? I'm actually contemplating having it tightened so the bridge is flat.
