Hi all, I am torn between these two models. I have had a Mayer Strat in the past and really liked it, particularly the pickups and comfortable neck. But I'm drawn to the new AVRI Hot Rod '60s with the compound radius, and other niceties... locking tuners, strap locks, nitro finish, etc.. The necks seem to be similar on the two. Anyone tried both and liked one significantly more than the other? How do the pickups on the Hot Rod compare to the big dippers? Is the S-1 switch worth it? Sadly, I am not able to try these out, so thanks to anyone for their thoughts or experiences.
