I just noticed this message just now! I think must have said something confusing. I have a strat plus (gift for my father in law) and a I have a Squire Pro Tone. While the Strat Plus is an amazing guitar, I'd say the body and the neck of the Pro Tone is every bit as good. The Pro Tone is a great guitar to mod if you get a good deal on one. Better than the CVs I have tried for sure.
