    Well I've gone to the dark side and purchased a Fender Stratocaster! It's a Classic series 50's in Daphne blue and all I can say is , WOW! It may be made in Mexico but I can't fault it, the neck is super comfortable even for my over size mitts! I'm just getting used to the 7.25" radius fretboard but it feels so natural to play other than that. The low output pickups are right up my street, it sounds fantastic through my JTM45. This guitar is absolutely a keeper.

    +1 What Slater529 said!

    I have an 08 Road Worn Strat in Oly w/ rosewood. I love the MIM line of guitars and the 50s and 60s models really shine.

    Congrats on your strat. Nice specs on that model and from what I've heard, the factory setups are very pretty right out of the box.

    That's a beauty for sure. Congrats on the new Strat.

    All the MIM Classic 50's and 60's Fender Strats I've tried have been amazing.

    Now days it's makes it very hard to spend $1400 on a new USA strat when these Classics are this good.
