Anyone played one? Im thinking of buying one off ebay, and maybe putting a Seymour Duncan STK-S4 in bridge.

These Strats worth it?

They're MIM strats with a fancey neckplate. How much is that neckplate worth to you?


I know nothing about strats, but I guess MIM are bad?

I think for the price you would shell out for the anniversary model, you could get a Japanese Stratocaster which would completely obliterate the MIM.

I've heard that the last thing you want to do is buy a mexican strat without playing it. It's a hit or miss thing with them, some will be great and some will suck

If you think MIM Strat necks are thick, I'd hate to see what you play.

Must be like a toothpick! You should check out the '52 Les Paul necks. Now THAT'S thick.


But yeah, I agree with trying the MIM guitars out before purchase. Actually, I say do that with any guitar.

The Stratocaster as a guitar is only 54 years old. I think what you are looking at there is 60 yr anniv badge of Fender being in business for 60 years. I don't think there is lots of extra hardware goodies or anything like that and should cost about the same too. Now if you can find a Standard Made In Mexico HSS Upgrade that will give you extra stuff for $30 or 40 and is totally worth it.

I think they are very playable and comfortable and a good guitar for the money $400.
