1995 MIM Strat w/USA Pickups
1995 [MN5923xxx] $ 449
I was saving the USA Pickups/Pickguard for another guitar later,
but this one is so beautiful and the old pickguard was so bad
that I decided to go ahead and use it on this MIM.
This guitar looks, plays and sounds as good as any USA you will find.
I also put new strings (09's) on it today.
It has been set-up and has a Hard Shell Case included.
It is amazing how good it looks for being almost 18 years old!!
The real legend at a price real people can afford.
The Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar is the guitar design that changed the world. New features include a tinted neck, parchment pickguard and control knobs, and a '70s-style logo. Includes select alder body, 21-fret maple neck with your choice of a rosewood or maple fretboard. Standard Strats now feature a thicker bridge block for increased sustain and a more stable point of contact with the strings.
At this low price, why play anything but the real thing?

=ONE MAN'S OPINION=
Mine is a Sunburst model which I've owned for a while and even though it's a (Gasp!) Mexican Strat,
I would gladly put it up against any US made Strat any day of the week. Fender has improved upon these vastly underrated guitars with the jumbo frets, thicker trem block and the shielded body compartments.
I have used this at many gigs without any problems whatsoever and have gotten many a compliment on it. This is the best guitar going today and as soon as I get my income tax return I intend to get another one to add to the herd. I'm a Strataholic and proud of it!
To hell with the price hike. if the guitar is good, then the increase is well worth it. I say! Viva Le Fender Mexico!
