Does anyone know if it's any good? I'm searching for a good cheapie to lug around without worring too much. I'm also considering some MIJ Fenders, so it would be nice if anyone could compare both.

Thanks :)

I have no experience w/ the ST360, but if you're in the market for a Yamaha you should definitely pick up a Super R'n Roller 400 or 500. From time to time you can find a 70s or early-80s model on eBay. They totally nail the vintage Strat sound/vibe; excellent build quality, too. I had a 500 that was my number 1 for a couple years (bandmate dug it so much he traded me his PRS CU24 for it). I paid $350 for it originally and intend to replace it at some point.

Did some research and, as far as I could find out, it's pretty much the same guitar with a different headstock. Being the SR a "law-suit", they probably had to change it. Can anyone confirm it?

That's likely the case. If you're interested in an SR 500 I just checked one of the eBay sellers I keep an eye on and he has a very nice one from the 70s. He's only asking $325 w/ free shipping from Japan. I am not affiliated in anyway with this seller; just like to check out his instruments when I'm on eBay.

If interested:
