FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / MIM vs American made strats

"Currently," I own two MIM Strats (Deluxe Roadhouse and Deluxe Fat Strat Floyd Rose) and seven MIA Strats.

I really like them all, but I only gig with my American Deluxe HSS Strats (which have more custom features than anything made by the CS). The American Dlx HSS Strats might not appeal to some players, but they're perfect for me in all respects. To me, they are superior to anything in Fender's MIM line.

The new MIM Player Strats have Alnico 5 pickups. Mine sounds and feels every bit as good as the American Series strat I had.
