I was gonna either buy a MIM HSS strat or one of the Carvin bolt kits(strat copy). They are both the same price but which one would be better quality. I know the carvin is made in U.S.A but i cant play one first. I have had plenty of time playing MIM strats in the store and i like them alot. I dont know what to do

the diy carvin is better if you have to capability and time to make it, much much better actually

time and capability is not a problem. there isn't much to do, i don't even thnk the pick guard needs wiring. i was just worried i wouldn't like how it felt
