SO recently ive been dealing with a guy from craigslist who has this beauty of a guitar



Sorry for the extremely large images.
But this is a 1987 MIJ Stratocaster.
Before you all go saying LOOK AT THIS AND THAT, im aware of the neck haha it is not the original neck but a custom Vneck the owner had made for him.

Im not sure about these guitars, ive heard they're real gems of some sort but i want to know your opinion on these. Is it a good buy/not? Its flaws? Etc, etc.

Thanks UG!

The pickups are quite good actually, better than the tex mex's imo.

funnily enough I have some tex me's in another. I like them both for different things. The tone is completely different from the tex mex strat. It's not very useful but... it's all down to preference. I'm an SRV fan big time so I thought tex mex's were the best PUPs ever when I got them but i've been re blown away by the Jap's original PUP's.

I'll be posting a clip soon so you can hear it!

looks like my mij 62 ri. shame you don't have the original neck, it's a sweet neck.

i wouldn't offer much over $275 for it as is. the pups are good imo.

even with the hard case.
