I know there are a ton of guitar heads on this forum, so I'd thought I better pass along a great deal on an American made Strat.
The only color available is sparkle black, rosewood fingerboard.
If you can handle that, you've got one hell of a deal @ $799 free shipping.
It comes with 3 "rewiring" cards that let you rewire the way the tone controls and switches work on the fly (switching tone capacitors, or splitting pickups), so if you are the type that instantly has to start unsoldering capacitors and changing switch orientations, you are probably going to hate that this easy path is now offered to you.
But if you are totally offended by the training wheels, you can obviously bypass those circuit paths, and completely roll your own; just like the old days.
The only "odd" thing about this deal is that it is sold by Adorama - you know the giant NYC camera store.
I went to Guitar Center to have them match this deal, but the manager could not match it. The closest thing he could offer was a stripped down American Strat that did not have the Locking Tuners, HSS or roller guides for $1200 + tax. The an almost exact same guitar as the Adorama deal he said he could do for $1399 + tax (but it had slightly different hardware).
