I recently purchased a 2019 MIM players series strat. I have had the guitar almost 2 weeks now and I love playing it. Not sure if its the maple fretboard or what but I prefer playing it over both of my MIA strats with rosewood fretboards. It seems so much easier to play than my other guitars. I wish I had gone maple long ago, I play this guitar every night since I brought it home. One question though, Did the guitar come with the locking tuners or were they added?

Beautiful guitar, I made the switch to maple a while ago l love it. Nothing against rosewood , I have one but maple is great, and it looks really clean.

Beautiful guitar! I have a Made in Mexico Strat from the older Standard series, but also really enjoy playing it. Mine also has a maple neck, the first guitar I owned with one, as opposed to a rosewood neck. I think like the others on this thread I am coming to prefer a maple neck. In any event, hope you get much playing pleasure out of your guitar.

I've always preferred maple fretboards, probably because my first strat 42-43 years ago had maple and I got used to that as what a strat was supposed to feel like. And while I like the back of the neck to be satin finished, I'm fine with a full gloss on the fretboard. I'm so partial to maple that for a long time, I specifically DIS-liked rosewood. Lately, I've come to like rosewood just fine (although I've yet to play a Pau Ferro neck I didn't hate), but I'll still take maple every time if given the choice...
