Fender or Squier for the MIM?

Squiers aren't made in Mexico. He's referring to the Fender Standard Strat I think.

before even playing the guitars i'd want to go with fender just because i know their customer service and warrantees are decent. if the xavier plays well enough for that not to matter then go for it, but i voted MIM just because in my opinion thats where you'll find the more reliable and better playing guitar.

MIMs are kinda hit or miss. you've gotta find a good one. i can't really vouch for Xavieres cause I've only played one, but it was nice. the stock GFS pickups will be better than the stock fender ones, and the xaviere comes with a graphite nut... idk if you can find any to try out though.

in summary, xaviere has the potential to be nicer but the fender is probably the safer bet.
