Thumbs up Fender 68' Strat Reverse Headstock MIM anyone?

Hi! Im about to buy a new strat, and i dont really like the standart one. I love strats with reversed headstocks.
So, i found one in store. Its cream white Strat 68' with reversed headstock. But its made in Mexico. Year 2007-2008. Also its used.
Is it worth to buy one? Becouse, i heard they are rare guitars, not sure about MIM's.
Price is around 280-299.
So, is it worth to buy or not? I really love how it looks like, is it really rare guitar?
I hope you help me guys, with your advice!

Price sounds about right for a second hand MIM, if its in good condition.

The questions you're asking suggest you haven't played it... I would stop worrying about how "rare" it is (not very, and even if it was, its a MIM so who cares) and get to know it.

Nobody else can tell you if you should buy it.

Mexican Strats are good guitars. It's not very rare as such unfortunately.

Buy it!
