Hey, a while ago i tryed out a 2nd hand american fender strat and it was really nice but the guy was wanting £600 for it and its a bit steep for me.

so after sum looking on line i found this

is this strat any good, i know it wont b as good as the MIA one i tryed but is it going to be worth the money?

thanks

i would def say so.

as long as youre not worried about being an elist and having an american strat, then go for it.

the specs list for that price is great.

alos there are classic player 50ies, 60ies, and 70ies strats too http://www.thomann.de/gb/search_dir.html?sw=fender+classic+strat&x=0&y=0

(cant belive the site you found the guitar on is cheaper than thomann!!)

thomann isn't all that cheap usually, digital village is far better for pretty much everything. main differences between those strats is the neck dimensions and fretboard woods, the 50's is by far my favourite, lovely to play and the vintage neck looks gorgeous especially if you get daphne blue

Pickup magnets and windings, tuners, pickguards, electronics, headstocks, logos, tremolos, string trees, strap buttons....


That stratocaster went through an AWFUL lot of changes in those 30 years. Yes ok a lot of them very subtle, but if you're a sad strat fan like myself, there's a lot. And they were the best in the 50s


I could list all the differeneces in detail if you would really like...

you could always consider an 80s tokai copy...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

you're aware an 80s tokai strat copy (assuming decent condition) will annihilate that classic players strat, right?
