I had an SX LP Jr "copy". All mahogany with a set mahigany necm and 2 P90s - had an awesome growl when pushed and very clear tone when pulled back. Great lead guitar but I don't play much lead. Cheap guitar action set up well and sounded great on either/both pickups. I don't own a Strat and am more fond of Jazzmasters but I don't even own a Fender. They're not the same since pre CBS models.
