...between a

Standard Telecaster $400

and an

American Standard Telecaster $1000

Where the Mexicans stand when they build them. The factories are only like 80 miles apart from each other.

Kidding aside, the MIA guitars use better quality parts and have more attention to smaller details. Whether or not that is worth $600 is something you'll have to decide. For me it was at least, I enjoy my MIA strat.
