Considering a new guitar

Post by bluesman1950 » Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:24 pm

I'm seriously thinking about getting a MIJ Strat type guitar.

Does anybody have any thoughts about which one might be the best?
I typically like really low action and tend to use 9's-

I like a maple fret board, preferably with a darker tint-Not sure about
which pups come on these guitars-

I'd much rather hold out for a vintage guitar as opposed to a new one-

I have just discovered the excellent quality of these MIJ instruments-
Took me long enough-I'm 63!

Thanks, guys-Jerry

If you like a really low action, something with a bigger radius might be worth considering. Problem is, most of the MIJ strat copies (that I'm aware of, anyway) tend to have the vintage 7.25" radius. It's a newer model, but I think the tokai gs100 (there are still a few available in shops here as new old stock, I think) had a slightly bigger radius (don't quote me on that, though). I should also point out that I haven't tried it.
