Alot of novice Fender guys never knew (or cared) that in 2006, the MIM Standard strat got revamped.
The Poplar Body became Alder.
The small vintage frets became medium jumbo
The tremolo block got a lot bigger
The hardware is said to have gotten better.
But some players say the pickups on the old ones were better.....
And some people love vintage size frets....
So, what do you think?
Older or New MIM.....which do you prefer?
