well im thinking about getting a new guitar really soon. preferably a fender strat (unless you have anything better to suggest).
my price range is like 500-1300 canadian

so my guitar teacher found this mex strat that he put some american lace sensors into...
hes saying 500...

is that a good deal?

also, are there other better options? like the american standard strat - are the stock pups any good? what about other brands?

ps; im looking for a good funk clean to a pearl jam type distortion
