Hi there, I'm thinking of pulling the trigger for an "as new" Player Strat in Buttercream finish. I have to say I always owned MIA Strats (still have two) and never was a huge fan of mexican Standards (I owned a 2014 olympic white one for a few days). I hear the Players are much better than the Standards. Pickups are Alnico, for example. But what about built quality? Quality control? And the weight? In my own experience (MIM I owned, tried, owned by friends) MIM Standards almost always weighed more than MIAs. Thanks a lot to everyone who will chime in!
