Just pulled the rigger on this.

Yes there is a difference in an American made Strat and a non American made Strat.

um yep.

It has S1 switch giving me 10 different pickup configurations, 5 phased and 5 in series and or phased.

Makes for some awesome tone variations. I'm loving it.

Look at my moniker.

I can relate. It presents me with a bit of a handicap.

You have options! You should try the mandolin or the ukulele!

Mandolin is an awesome instrument. Also octave mandolin or bouzouki both great instruments with small fretboards, just longer.

I came to acquire a cheap little mandolin a couple years ago and it's been a pure delight. Fun to play on its own, but there's something extra special and transformative about it in a room full of guitars in a jam session.

I have a Mexican Strat. I love it. I had stacked humbuckers put into it.

I considered dropping a stacked humbucker in the bridge and make it a fat strat like I had years ago
