Is this worth the extra $170 or so over the Fender Standard MIM???? I played a Honey blonde with rosewood board sounded good. Am I better off buying the MIM Standard then upgrading on my own. I don't have the money for an MIA. What is the difference between rosewood and maple boards??? Tone wise. Thanks
What fender strat's does everyone recommend as far as quality and sound priced below $650
I would get a deluxe over the standard. In fact, I've had the Deluxe Powerhouse model for a while and it's great. You may want to upgrade some stuff later though. Ive changed some stuff to help it stay in tune better and I just got some new pickups for it.
