im gonna be buyin a fender strat soon and i was wondering if there are any major differences between the standard mexi strat and also the 50s, 60s, 70s strats which are also made in mexico. The difference in pickups doesnt matter cause i can get some really good ones if i buy the standard. Basically, im just wondering if the extra cash is worth it for the 50s, 60s, 70s strats. (for me, the standard is half the price of the others, $631au compared to $1300au)
different pups, trem, possibly woods, etc.
Different pickups, prob woods used, hardware and so on, but if the standard's that much cheaper, get that, try a load first and choose the one you like best.
