I sold my only Strat last year - an American Special - because I couldn't bond with the jumbo frets, but I'm GASsing for another. I've played a couple of AmStd Strats recently but none really spoke to me. I'm considering a Classic Player 60s Strat but can't find one locally to try, so I'm looking for opinions from the Strat gurus here on this model. On paper, it sounds promising with its '69 CS designed pups and 12" fretboard. Are the current models still worth buying, or is an original '06 model the one to own? Am I better off with a used MIA strat for the about the same $$$?
