id buy USA made or jap... The real problem with the Mexican ones isnt the quality or the cost its the
street cred of being "A Mexican Strat"

Depending on model and type of Fender, i would expect to pay $150 to
$300 dollars more for a nonmexican one... most have slightly different
hardware too I've noticed... different pups in some cases...

Cheers

Buy my Japanese Profile Stratocaster.
It's heads and tails better crafted than ANY current-production Stratocaster.
Not to mention it's about 30 years old...

I heard that the difference between the US and Mex was-

Mexican Fenders are made in Mexico by Mexicans.

U.S.A. Fenders are made in the U.S.A. by Mexicans.

Might not be true, and I'm pretty sure the Japanese Fenders are not made by Mexicans. I just heard so I can't confirm.
