    If it wasn't for the vintage frets and radius I'd have my credit card out.

    I have one and love it! Plays great, stays in tune and sounds fantastic. Wish I picked it up for that price. The quality will surprise you.

    I assume this is a Mexi Strat. I have a 50's Classic Reissue and I love it as well. Had my guitar tech flatten the radii on the fret wires up towards the 12th fret and I really don't have a problem with bends etc. At $399 it is a great deal.

    I have one. Think the specs are wrong... the frets are not vintage size and the radius feels like 9.5.

    Deals like this definitely doesn't help dealing with G.A.S. issues!

    The one I played at Guitar Center definitely FELT like a 9.5. I picked up a japanese strat not too long ago that is a 7.25 and it feels absolutely different

    According to Musicians Friend it's a 7.5 radius with vintage style frets.

    My 60s Classic has 7.5" and vintage frets. Love it. Best neck of any Strat I've played, a nice full C shape.

    That made my stomach sink into my damn feet. I've been wanting one of these, they sell at $699 new. They are KICKASS guitars. I want one so badly, but I REALLY REALLY can't afford it.
