That looks awesome. Great color too. Glad you found the right guitar for you!
Nice CV .
HOLY CRAP! I was going to suggest you acquire an inexpensive Strat, that feels and plays well, and begin your journey with pickups, and wiring, and tone controls, and string gauge, and setup, and neck angle, and fret size, and pickup adjustment, and love, and hate, and on, and on, and on. It seems you've acquired a very good instrument for a GREAT price, and now you can begin the same journey. Enjoy the journey.
I would go for a CV Squier, or Fender Player, but I'm not in the market for a Strat at any time in the future.
Idk my CV plays and sounds better than my plus slightly better playing feeling neck. When the CV came out 08 or so.... thinner necks but by 14 it's a thicker C imo, for sure thicker than the mim.
The newer player. I don't care for the two point trem I like the 13 to 17. I just think it's a matter of really playing a few, no different with mia. Either way some play better than others.
He did - look at page 4.
I missed that thanks.
Find an older MIM Strat on CL they’re prevalent and can often be had for a song. Update as needed and you’re all set. Much better than a Chinese Squire.
The above is a ‘94 MIM Strat (almost mint) I bought for about $100. Added new hardware - bridge/ block / tuners, pickguard, had a winder I found on eBay in Texas make some late 50’s style pups ($40), did a blender mod. Turned out great! Entire guitar after upgrades was well less than $300. Torino Red too, unique color.
94 MIM necks and bodies were manufactured in Carona Ca and shipped to the Mexico plant for finishing and assembling. This was a “Squire Series” which was essentially mim standard with crappy hardware and electronics to lower the price point. The guitar is light and the neck is fast, great playing guitars and perfect for modding.
That’s a great colour, good choice!
