Hi guys, I honestly didn't think I'd find myself ever GAS-ing so hard for a Fender strat as I am right now, I always saw myself as a Jackson (I know, owned by Fender but whatever) or Ibanez guy. I have this cheapo 150$-ish strat copy that is getting a lot of play recently but it really isn't that great of a guitar and I want something better. I've started to play more and more rock and E standard in general and I really want a guitar that isn't a shred machine so I'm thinking about going for the MIM HSS Standard Strat but here's the thing, I've tried some MIM strats in shops around Sweden but the shop owners really don't seem to care too much about setting up the guitars well so most of them have had very sharp fret ends and high string action. They feel good in terms of build quality and I like the neck profile though. Realistically, I can't really play the guitar before I buy it since most stores around here don't stock too many of them so I'm asking you for your opinions on some good 500-700$ strats, it doesn't necessarily have to be an HSS model but I'd really like the body to be routed for at least that. And oh, spell checking has stopped working on my computer but hopefully you understod what I meant. Thanks! Swedish chef, out!
