I'm thinking of trading in my FX-400 and laying down a few more bucks to buy a Fender MIA Strat, putting DiMarzio HS-2 pick ups in it like Eric Johnson. Seem like a good idea? The more I see people play strats, in any way, makes me want one badly. Weird thing is I used to despise them...

Does this sound like a good idea?

I'm making a LP guitar with SD Alnico Pro II pick ups anyway, so I got that for harder stuff.

Any opnions?

ive had this urge too, but in my case, it was an MIM strat, due to the lower prices.
i ended up sticking to my LP.

Well since my LP is almost finished, I think I'll try to get the strat. Kinda depends on how much I get for the guitar.

Am I the only one that thinks that MIA strats are a waste of time and that you'd get better bang for your buck by buying the Deluxe player's strat?

I mean, you could always modify the 6 point into a 2 point....

That's the other Strat I'm thinking of, cosmetically looks better =P And it's cheaper. I think I'll have to try the two.

Both the Deluxe Players and the MIA strats sound awesome.

I ended up getting the Deluxe Players Strat myself. The one I tried just played so well and had a great tone. Chose it over a few MIAs I tried.

Customize you own Carvin Bolt-T and get a better guitar for less money.

Congrats on your purchase. I'm looking at getting me a Strat. It's not easy with all these choices! It'll be my first electric and I don't know which one to get
