A 'real' 1972 Fender Thinline Telecaster is usually a great guitar. The builders spent more time on them due to the upper hollow chamber and f hole.

The MIJ and CIJ (crafted in Japan) Fenders are as good and sometimes better than the USA Fenders.
MIM vintage style Teles are more often than not better than their American counterparts ... and I have no idea why.

*The current 'American Professional' series (which replaced the American Standard) seem to be of very high and consistent quality. At least the one's I've tried so far.
Gibson quality is back to shit again, except on the $2500 and up models.

Yeah there is something good going on with the MexiStrats in my experience too, I haven't played a boatload of them but I haven't played one that was bad yet, and I have set up and played at least one that to me, felt and sounded better than the 07' American Standard that I have now. Up here in AK you can find a used one for $300, sometimes a bit more depending on finishes, customization etc.
I haven't tried any of the Japanese Strats yet, but maybe I should.

This one I think is probably Mexi or Japanese made. I may have to give him a call. rolleyes.gif

At this point too, the Japanese Fenders are priced about the same as the USA models - both new and used.
