Hello guys.
I have a squier cv strat equipped with Texas Special pickups.Now I am thinking of buying a Fender Mexican standard strat.Is it better quality than my squier?
#2
Probably not. Squier CV guitars cost about as much or more on the used market as MIM Fenders, and many would rather have the CV.

If you want to upgrade, you might look at MIJ or MIA strats from Fender, Tokai, Fernandes and Greco.

Question about the pickups though: did you notice a notable difference from the standard pickups when you switched to the standard specials? Is it a 50s or 60s CV? I'm seriously gassing for a 60s CV and just tried one at the store...

Yes. Yes, yes, yes, a thousand times, yes. I swear this question is asked every other week.

A MIM Strat or Telecaster will almost always be better built than a comparable Squier. It'll feel better in your hand and resonate better when plucked. The biggest weak point on a MIM Strat is the pickups, which if you already have a set of Texas Specials, you can swap them into the MIM and swap the MIM pups into the CV.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

i will +3.1415 that. you can find a decent MIM for under $250 any day of the week if you aren't overly picky.

the 1995 MIM strat i have now was given to a friend who made me promise to keep it. its the best MIM i have had. i have gotten them for under $200 a couple times, some needed a tiny bit of work, but its a good way to make money.

I have a Classic Vibe 50's Tele, the white version. Honestly, it is one of the best guitars I have ever played, and I own a Custom Shop Fender strat. It's outplayed every single MIM I have ever tried. What is it about the Squier that doesn't make you happy?
