Hi guys, I want to buy a Fender Stratocaster but I have no idea what to buy; so I need your help. I want one with a maple neck and an Olympic White finish, three single coils, a tremelo arm and preferably MiM as I can't afford a MiA.

Thanks

Indeed.

TS, just go into a music store and try some strats out. Most are roughly the same, the differences between the various MIM models are usually subtle. However, the MIM Standard has the features you mentioned and is available in white.

i come from a town with a bad name and the local shop does not order valuable guitars because the last time he did kids came in and stole/trashed them. and i dont want to travel for 3 hours (I do not drive and have a phobia of trains) to be honest XD

Yeah man, just get a MIM Standard Strat.

Has all of the features you mentioned, except not in Olympic white, but rather, Arctic White. They're both pretty cool, to be honest.

Unless they changed it, they do come in Olympic White. I bought mine in Olympic white.

MIM Standard Stratocaster. I doubt you can get a 50s or 60s for the price of the standard, I think those start approaching the $600 and over.

^^^This. I know you said a shop is far away, but I played 10 strats in Sam Ash one time (all MiM) and only liked one of them... and they were all the same model too. You might get a bad one if you order online.

Go for a 2 tone sunburst HSS strat thats MIM.Amazing guitar with an amazing sound, soft or metal.
#18
You'll have the exact same guitar as me! so far it's been very awesome, nothing broken of malfunctioning, I don't play metal, but i can vouch for it's awesomeness for blues. Oh, and BTW, the MiM's only come in arctic white. at least the 2008's did.
