Well I finally noticed the U.S. made Hwy 1 Strats ( and Tele's) selling for $630.00. What intrigued me mostly on the Strat was they comes with a vintage trem and a 9.5 inch radius. And they appear to have greasebucket tone controls. I really enjoy my simple AM Strats and have maintained pretty much a workingmans approach to my electric guitars, except for my acoustics. I thought these looked like a great bargain and I have been looking for a Maple neck strat. I wouldn't mind the satin see through finish at all. At any rate thought I would mention them and see if anyone has any thoughts on these not being the bargain they seem to be.
