Been thinking about buying one of these for a while & finally pulled the trigger the other day :thumbs

It's nice to have something a little different in the herd & this sure is, some peeps think they look ugly with the reverse headstock & bridge pup but I like it! It does have a nice unique sound (vintage '65 grey bottom pups) when playing with a lower gain setting & it's very easy to get in Hendrix territory with it but wind the gain up & it still rocks......hard :headbang

The Mexican QC is on top of it's game these days too, this things fit & finish is superb, you really can't distinguish from the US built stuff :nono

Nice!!! I've had my eye on one of those for a while. Actually thinking about building one myself so I can put the tremolo upside down like the way Hendrix and SRV both played it. I mean, if we are going for something different, right?
The patina of the white paint on your is perfect!!

Looks great to me, I love the reverse headstock too.

Mex Strats are top build quality, the only thing different to US ones is the lower grade wood used.

Thats a really nice looking strat - i think the headstock looks great.
There was some really bad reports about the early Mexican strats so its good to hear things have sorted themselves out.
I recently got back into strat type guitars after a long (20 year +) break with them - and like you say its so easy to wonder into hendrix/srv territory when you play them - and for me thats been a real positive.
Great buy

Make sure to post up some video if you decide to take LSD and set it on fire.
