May I add to that... generally (<- keyword) which are better? Mex Strats or MIJ Strats?

MIJ Fenders are usually better, but that in no way means the MIMs are bad. In fact, some can be better, but overall MIJs are better, but a lot rarer.

MIJ Fenders are very good, I hear the ones from the 80s are the best quality. I feel 300 for a 96 is a little steep, but still check it out. See if you can find one from the mid 80s, I recently bought one used for $350 and it is an excellent guitar that plays great.

why thank you for answering my question. I buy most my gears from ishibashi webshop, they got some nice MIJ Strats. If anyone wants to check out, I highly recommend.

the couple of MIJ fenders i've tried have been far superior to any MIMs i've tried. i'd also take a look at japanese-made tokais, some of them are/were made in the same factory as the MIJ fenders, and they're generally cheaper, and often better too.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.
