Does anyone have any experience with these: http://fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0265106537 I'm looking for a good strat and I am able to get anything at cost from GC. I played this Special Edition Koa Strat and I fell in love with the feel of the neck. It played much better than any Mexican strat I played in the store and the construction and setup was top notch. From what I understand, the body is basswood with a Koa top. I'm not very educated when it comes to wood types and the sounds they produce, but the finish is beautiful. These guitars are made in Korea and I'm wondering what the general consensus is regarding that fact as well. I also have questions about the bridge and tuners. Do you think this will hold up for the long term or will I be in for replacements? Lastly, I'm not in love with the Seymour Duncans Alnico Pro pickups. I'll probably swap them out for Texas Specials since I love the warmth and bass of SRV. I've been playing guitar for 10 years and this will only be second guitar I have every bought, so this is quite a big deal for me. (I am currently playing a PRS Mccarty) Would I be better of spending a little more cash on something American?
