I’ve got the horn for a strat, but not a lot of money - what’s the best value for say under $1000? This looks like it will get me a Squier CV or a G&L tribute. There’s also Vintage V6 with Wilkinson hardware, or Yamaha for a bit less $$, and in an ideal world we would swamped by MIM strats for $600, but this doesn’t seem to be the the case.
madness how much people want for their Squiers these days, if you don't mind a Japanese Stratacaster.. $900 buy now seems decent

The G&L and Vintage stuff both have good reps for the dollars. That's where I'd be looking.
Another vote for the G&L. I'm blown away by my tribute. Superb value for money. If you can find an older korean one, they will have same hardware asthe MIA versions.

Or a Sterling Cutlass from rockshop. $599 seems like a good price. Good reviews iirc.

Thanks for the suggestions, all. I sadly managed to buy a house without garage or workshop space, so tinkering is currently more trouble than it’s worth. What’s the width on the MIJ necks - my fingers are less refined and more agricultural, so I don’t think I’d want to have a neck tighter than normal. And YGM kdawg...

My first thought was: "Twat!" LOL. Then I thought, can't he afford a stand?
