hey

i was wondering if 1996 mexican fenders were any better/worse than ones made today (like how 80's japan squiers blow todays out of the water, and seeing how various companies quality control goes up and down at various points) and was wondering if anyone on here could tell me?

thanks

the mexican electric fenders do not come recomended by me.
for one thing you have to buy a voltage converter for your amp and for your guitar lead.
but if you love the smell of chilli then you will find it worth getting.

Birdy, you're a fucking idiot.

06 VS 96 = the 06 has better QC. BUT if you find a good 96, which is good if you like it... than by all means, go ah ead.

I have a 97 Jazz that is perfect, I got it for 150.

Threadstarter, play the guitar, then compare it to newer MIM Fenders, see what you think.

ive got a MEX standard strat from 95-96'. play it every day, never had a problem.

i think (in general) they are better than the strats they were pumping out the past few years, but they just upgraded the Mex strats for this year.
worth checking out.



just make sure the frets arent worn from years of use.
but thats true of any older guitar.
