Some good things... Contrary to reports I'd read, this store (Denver) had lots of stock. At least a dozen nice historics, within reach. I'm not racing to buy one, but I liked the wider fretboard a lot... And the nut did not register as different while playing it. At the other end of the scale, I picked up a $129 Squire Strat with a rosewood fretboard... Super light, well set up, and a very nice player. It needed the fret edges filed, but in this dry winter climate in the desert that is to be expected. I'd guess the electronics need an upgrade, but did not plug it in. And then... There were of course the three typical wankers playing bad 80-90's riffs way loud and looking around to see of anyone was impressed... But that's par for the course.
