Hi all, I thought to join the site/forum with a NGD. Had a USA Standard Strat before but sold it a year ago. Now I have some time for playing and got a 60’s classic lacquer for a great price. Guitar seems not to be played or almost not played. Let me tell you... Mexico is really doing a great job. When I compare with the 2012 USA standard, one is really hard pressed to say it is much better if any. And I hold USA made strats from 2012 to 2015 in a highest esteem. I will post pictures as soon as I get home. Cheers.
