I just pickued up a new (06 - hangin in the shop for a while) Fender 60's Classic Strat MIM in 3TSB. Wholy moley I tell you this is a nice guitar. Got it in a trade just cause I was stratless for a while and was craving that sound and feel. I have owned a few American Standards, an EC sig., an American Vintage 62, and a Classic Players 60 and I'll tell you this is the best sounding and feeling of the bunch. They all got sold after a while cuase I didn't love em. Nice weight at 7.7 pounds, super tight neck joint, 2 peice (wow right 2 peice on a MIM but yeah I looked real close and i'm sure) body with excelently matched seems, very fat and rich tones, it's quiet for a single coil guitar, the neck is beefy and that's about it. Outstandingly resonant peive of wood and dead on quality control on this one. I decided that I prefer vintage appointments on my strats so I decided to bag my American Standards a while ago. I just can't believe this rather affordable little guy is so spectacular. I just can't see letting this one go. After so many years I can't believe I found a great strat that's so cheep. Its amazing you don't see more of this model out there.
