I currently have a 2008 model Mexican Std Strat,with Rosewood fretboard, its a somewhat average guitar. Im Looking at buying a nicely aged American strat mostly because of my positive experiences with my 95 Jap Custom Tele (Black/Gold “50th Anniversary” model). I really like the neck profile on that Tele and the way it feels to play on the aged neck/fretboard. Information that I have found on this Gat tells me its specs are: “C Shape” neck, The TLG94 features a basswood body and maple neck with a 25.5” scale rosewood fretboard (21 frets). Im wanting a strat with a maple neck rather than rosewood, to try something a little different. Is there a prefered year for American std strats with maple boards within the 80s and 90s period? There is an 89 American Std strat thats for sale near me that im going to try out.
