The standard is Mexican made. The factories are only about an hour or so drive apart from each other though, so don't let that deter you.

Apparently Rosewood is better?

I think maple is better for strats, but it's all personal choice.

So is this any different from a beginner fake strat?

It's not fake
Also, if you're not too quirky about name, try Squier Classic Vibe strats, they're cheaper, but IMO they sound way better than the MIM Fenders

Rosewood is warmer sounding, maple is brighter sounding. They have different textures/feel to them as well, its all preference.

I would find a Standard Strat that plays well and just choose the colour and fretboard that suits you. They are good guitars if they are what you are looking for and for me alot better than the low to mid range Squier guitars.

At the price in the ad it has to be a Mexican. It won't be an American. Serial numbers on Mexican's usually start with "MZ".

It's made in Mexico, so its less expensive than a USA strat. It has slightly less quality electronic and pickups than the USA, but is by no means a poor quality guitar or a poor man's strat. They were just upgraded this past year, and play and sound great.
