Quick heads up to folks, Musicians Friend must be trying to move the remainder of these - MIM Strat with reverse Jimi-esque headstock. I just bought one from them for $499 after getting a 'special sale' flyer when I bought a new pedal from them (MXR Carbon Copy...awesome pedal!). You have to call them and reference promotion number 805T that is on the back of the flyer. Anyway, just thought I would share as $499 is not a bad price. After playing it last night the neck finish/frets are not Made in America quality but that's to be expected, however the paint, pickups, neck shape are great. I'm going to Frankenstein this with some Fralins, Callaham bridge/block, etc. I though this was a good base to work with that includes a unique neck and can be made into a nice workhorse guitar.
