I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Japanese ones have been known to be as good or sometimes better than some American ones.

ok here is my opinion on this one:

get a neck that youll love to play. The neck in my opinion is more important than the body. I say go artist series or american deluxe. As for the body, a japanese strat body will be crafted much better than a mexican, but the sound isnt all that different. Your playing ability and tuner through bridge hardware and strings will make the biggest difference. For instance, solid locking tuners, a heavy bridge and good saddles, and good pickups will help you out more than the difference between a two peice or three peice body. if that makes any sense.

if you're making an SRV strat, definitely get a 7.25" radius. that's what his guitar had.

Neck Radius doesn't matter one bit for tone. The wood yes. Go with a flatter neck they play better, Bend better. Stay with jumbo frets.

Japanese by far. Our Japan Strat is just as good as US Strats, a lot of Japanese ones are even better than US ones and blows the Mexican into another dimension.

ya i have another question. The guitar body i want now is a 62 american body. It has a nitro finish. What does that mean? Is good or does it look too dull? And would it get me that SRV guitar look?

that's a "better" finish than polyurethane, which is commonly used on newer guitar nowadays.
Nitro ages lovely, is thinner so it lets your guitar 'breathe', and it doesn't look dull at all. it's what all vintage guitars had back in the old days, including SRV's strats.
