Hey everyone!

I was just wondering if anybody knew about the routing on a regular Mexican Strat in recent years (since 2010). I'm looking to pick one up relatively soon but I'm not sure what kind of flexibility I would have for switching out pickup configurations. I would likely keep it in SSS but I'd like the peace of mind of having that option if I ever changed my mind.

iirc, MIM Standard Strats are HSH routed. But some series of MIM Strats are not like others. The Road Worn's for example are SSS routed, Road Worn Player is HSS routed etc.
Roses are red
Violets are blue

Thanks! I poked around on Google and it seems like the consensus is that the Standard Mexican Strat is routed for HSS in recent years, which is really the only other configuration I would want. Interesting that some of the other ones are different. I may have to keep that in mind..

yeah i thought i heard HSS but i've never looked at one under the pickguard...

the usa standard and deluxe (and i assume elite, but could be wrong there) are normally HSH-routed i think

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

the standard comes in more than one pickup configuration so in the interest of keeping production costs down they just do the HSH thing so they can use any body off the line for any type of Standard. Fender does this for most of their production guitars as it is more efficient.
