Hello and good day to you all. I was having this discussion the other day and thought it would be a valuable topic for anyone shopping for a used Stratocaster. What model Strat would you buy if you wanted the absolute best bang for your buck? I've caught some stellar deals in all of my days but nothing so far has been a better buy than the Fender Deluxe Lone Star Stratocaster (MiM Edition) What I think makes it such a good value is: Fender Custom Shop Texas Special pickups in the neck and middle Twin Head (or Pearly Gates) humbucker with S1 switching 70's large headstock 22 Frets (instead of 21) Gig Bag included Unique colors not found on Standard models. (Mine is the same color as this one: Ghost Silver w/ Silver pickguard) I picked up one like this a few years back for only $450 shipped So what do you think is the best bang for the buck on a used Strat?
