Okay so its summer now. Which means my band is gonna be gigging more frequently. And I want another strat. I already have a Hwy 1 And i love it. I have been reading reviews on a MIM deluxe powerhouse strat. This seems to me like its my guitar. I really want to get a new strat very soon. Maybe im just impatient but im pretty sure i dont feel like saving up for an american deluxe with s-1 switching. What do u think MIM now? or MIA in later time when i have the money.

I got the MIM Deluxe its nice and the noiseless pickups are hella useful for recording, I havent quite got it setup exactly how I want it yet.. the bridge wasnt too good ( bought second hand they was a mess) and the volume pot is hmm odd... seems normal from 1-8 then 9-10 seems to boost the volume really high i.e out of proportion... tuners however are good, neck is fast and well made (im presuming this come from the corona plant?) the body is very nice, its Ash with a translucent blue top looks very good, the pick guard was a brown tortoise shell, had that swapped to black pearl.. Guitar looks very nice and plays very nice in all just that volume pot stopping me from using it (i like to mess with volume whilst playing) For the price second hand though £250..

btw I have a highway which imo is a much better guitar..

if you have a highway one why not try a new type of guitar? why not get a Les Paul or a PRS? explore. Keep it for the 30 days and if you hate it trade it for the strat.

I have a MIA deluxe strat, just put a mini 59 in the bridge, i can play almost everything with at gigs, from funk--r & b-- rock... it all works... and a nice tube screamer helps too...

p.s. i also have a MIM deluxe edition strat with a normal sized SD 59 in the bridge, and although it sounds nice, the electronics and neck dont compare to the MIA w deluxe w/ s1 that is my primary guitar. (mentioned above)
