Hey guys, I know this forum for a while but this is the fisrt time I register to make a question. So here it go. I'm about to get a new strat, the one I have is a cheap brazillian copy that was given by my father more than 10 years ago as my first guitar. Now I want to meet the real deal. Unfortunately, I cannot afford an American one, either I choose a used MIM or a Squier CV, that's my money limit. I've been going through some reviews on Youtube and it seems like Cvs deliver a good tone compared to the MIMs, some say that the CVs are the new MIJ. But I don't know, there is this luthier that wants to sell me his 2004 MIM for $800. He is the second owner and the guitar doesn't seem well preserved. I dont know what you guys think but, for me, is not much worth to have an used guitar unless it is from a vintage era, like the 60s. The other option is for me to go for a brand new Classic Vibe 60s, for the same price of $800(taxes). So, I'd like a second opinion on this, this it worth to go for the Classic Vibe or may I get the MIM?
