Which do you think is better? I found an early 00s mexican strat for about $80 more than what I can get an SX strat for from rondo music.
Mexican strat? As in Fender? If so, get it!

I bought an agile and really liked it. I was just wondering if the mexican strats of that age are really $80 better than the current sx. I did play an sx strat in a pawn shop once, and thought it was a pretty decent guitar, albeit heavy.
i imagine the fender might have better resale value, if thats a factor.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

you used the right form of "their!" i commend you sir!

Yes, thats a great price. There could be a catch to it, its that cheap. The Mexican Strats are quite good.
How much is it?

As cheap as SX is, it's pretty much built for the price, that's about it. You'd do much better with the Mexi-Strat, honestly. If you clean the SX up and give it a once over with the upgrade pick, it could be a pretty good guitar but stock, the Mexi is better.
My SX SST57 Looks and Plays better than all the MIM's I tried out at our local GC. I'm not kidding - it's a sweet Ax. The new stock is coming in with better workmanship, QC, etc. My action was PERFECT - no buzzing - no intonation problems, frets were sweet - hell they felt like they'd been polished. My Pickups and electronics all work nicely and it stays in tune for days on end!

The high-gloss Maple Fretboard is amazing - better than any MIM I tested and sure beats ANY of the SQUIERS I was looking at too. Super Slick and fast as snot!

I put the Whammy back on it now and I use it sparingly but haven't really had any tuning issues doing so.
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!
