So I just picked up a new Strat the other day, a new 2011 American Standard. I REALLY don't need another guitar right now, but this just spoke to me. I saw the Olympic white color and just had to pick it up. I've had it for a few days and this is a hell of a guitar! Very resonant, light, plays great. Fit and finish is fantastic, although it could use a little set up; but very impressed. I even like the pickups, they sound like classic strat pickups. My main Strat is a Suhr, which is the best Ive ever played, and this new Strat is no slouch. Over all, I'm very impressed with an instrument of this quality for less than a grand. Still not sure if I'll keep it, because I really don't need another guitar; but it might be hard to sell this one!
