Well, after Weeks of internet searching, and review reading, and several trips to the guitar stores...

Today was the labor day sale at Guitar Center, the whole, come in early before they open thing. i really didnt expect much of a sale, retail stores do that crap all the time, where they say its a sale, but they damn well know its the same price they always sale at..

But guitar center was different today, i have been looking at the MIM strat for a while now, with a 400+ price tag, they had it for 369, which didnt make me **** myself, but still was a good deal, but i wanted cheaper, Long story short, i left the store with it for 300 bucks! a guitar stand, an Amp (****ty but free) cable, picks strings, all for 350! in my eyes i think i got a great deal, so everyone get your lazy asses up on this labor day, and go barter with guitar center! they are making freaking deals right now! GL ALL!

Mexican Starts are like 1/10th the quality of an American quality.

Although they are probably 10x better than squires. Money doesn't grow on trees. Good luck with the new axe.

Bull****. MIMs are more bang for the buck than americans, although i daresay americans are still much better.

Don't open the amp if you need it. Take it back in a week and you can get money for it. Unless you need it. I saw some guy stock up on cheap guitars (Epi LPs) and he said he will sell em back to GC and get about 100-150 back in the long run. They had a Epi LP STudio for $50 and I was like snaggage and sell it back.

You're an idiot.

When you find a really good MIM Strat, there's not much difference between that and a USA Strat.

And there's a gap between regular MIM Strats and USA ones, but it's not that huge.
