I'm in the market for an affordable strat...700-900 neighborhood and it's been a while since I've been strat shopping. There seems to be a bewildering variety of models and series to choose from. I could use some sage advice on what to look for, what to stay away from, etc. MIJ, CIJ, E series, U series, American standard, hotrod???? I just want a decent knock-around strat...as always, I appreciate and value the advice from my forum brothers!
