Make damn sure you play loads of them until you find a really good one, generally, Fender's quality control isn't great, so there's amazing guitars, avarage ones, and lemons, make sure you pick up a good one.

Also, I've heard that the 2006 Fenders have a load of upgrades, so try one of them.

I've always wondered why people call the duds for "lemons"? I mean, lemons is aestethically beautiful fruits, not something to compare to a bad guitar

Come to think of it, you're right, I love lemons.
Maybe it's because they're sour? Or some people might not like yellow....

Mangos taste rather nice, but the texture of them.... isn't too nice.

I got a great Mexi Strat, and I've not had to change anything at all since I bought it (except strings....), so chances are, if you find a great one, it'll hold together for ages.

the wood, the neck is finished better, the electronics inside, the pickups are usually specialty, or wired with s-1 switching.

i still love my mex made too, they are Great for modding. mines over 10 yrs old.

they have a lot of mex made out there now. get ones that suits ur playing.
also if u need a humbucker then get a humbucker.

Exactly, it's like eating a fruity squid.
