The price difference between this strat and the american ones are like, 600 bucks easy. So, I was wondering, is there that much difference that I'm not going to be satisfied with the mexican made one? A guitar a pro would use?

Been Looking into buying this, it's a great price, but wondering why the price would be so low.

The pickups and hardware and electronics aren't quite as good, but you're right, it's not worth the price difference.

You can currently buy left over new USA Highway 1 strats for $499 with free shipping at Sweetwater. Why bother with a Mexican Strat if you can own a new American Strat for a $100 difference?

Because they have things like bills, living expenses, or they are satisfied without spending that extra couple hundred that can be invested in a better amp, or just other assorted things.

I like the way that highway 1's play and sound. I'm thinking I'll invest in one with a rosewood fretboard, and upgrading to an HH config,and I don't see any point in investing a thosusand dollars in a guitar that i'm gonna change the electronics in, when I don't feel the difference in playing..
I listen to music and I don't need your opinions about what I listen to.

the mexis arent bad.. only problem ive had is they didnt stay in tune quite as well as the american strats, but other then that theyre pretty decent
