    I got a MIM strat recently, and it was kinda underwhelming. I really wanted a strat but I wanted stainless frets and this delivers. It also has a "Silent Circuit", which reduces hum and retains true single coil sound. It works really well too.

    The cool thing is that it sounds really good too. It does lowgain great of course, but it also sounds good on with high gain which I didnt expect. It feels and plays pretty great.

    Nice guitar dude! Finding stainless frets on a SSS guitar is tough, but those always seemed really nice to me. Great color too.

    Single coils on high gain have a really peculiar sound which I like personally. Other than the obvious example of Yngwie, check out Devin on Terria (all stock strat) or Kevin Hufnagel with Dysrhythmia

    been thinking about these..MM build quality is top notch and that those trems are good too..it also ticks the box of no volume knob directly next to the bridge pickup, the number 1 reason i cant stand strats. HNGD!

    The new ones with roasted necks look particularly tasty, didn't realise these had SS frets as well which is a big plus for me.

    Not totally sure about noiseless pickups /silent circuits when it comes to strats, I get this suspicion that some of the stratness goes along with the noise, but there's definitely scenarios where you couldn't live with the hum.

    That's a pretty nice looking guitar and the colour too which looks translucent so you can see the wood grain. I also like the way the volume knob is out of the way compared to a regular Strat guitar. I also like the five neck bolts to ensure a real good connection between the body and neck. Congrats on your very fine purchase. It looks like a real player of a guitar.;)

    It's not very metal but I bet it absolutely owns. Music Mans are nuts and that one looks so clean. You can't really go wrong with them.
