I also have a Stratocaster. Actually dunno what type or what, cause im new in guitars.
Its Black w/brown, and it has 'Mad Axe' on the head.
I like this guitar pretty much, it has a nice sound and it also looks nice.

I want to buy an American Strat... one of the new ones

Are they of good quality and craftmanship?

I've got a MIM sunburst Strat, bout 3 or 4 years old.

I love it, it's perfect, wouldn't change it at all, and it's all stock too.

I own an agave blue MIM, which I'll be painting and upgrading soon.
The neck is nice, though.

I love Strat Necks most of all. They're so smooth.

I have an American Standard in Burgundy Mist Metallic with a 3 layer white pickguard, Stephens Design Mojo "V" pickups, rosewood fretboard. Bought it new for $600 or so in 2001.

Dr. No's Strat. I've seen those new MIK Fender Strats and Teles that are neckthrough.

The Burgundy Mist Metallic color was discontinued, so I got it for a lower price. The shop had 3 of them at the time they were getting rid of.

The Mojo "V" pickups I have aren't quite like the ones you hear on his site. They're slightly overwound (custom for me), so a bit fatter, although the bridge has a sharp tone to it. Very nice pickups. They're what Lace Sensor Golds and Fender Vintage pickups want to be when they grow up.

My strat is a bolt on. The neck is bird's eye maple.

It's an awesome guitar, great for funk and blues. I always play it straight thru the amp on clean with no effects. Great clean tone.
