American standard doesn't exist anymore, it's now called American Pro.
Beautiful. Simply, simply lovely.
Probably the same set-up as per the Epiphone Les Paul that is made in China, under licence. You only notice a difference in sound if you have the two next to each other. For a relative newbie like me, it’s hard to justify the extra £1k for the American Gibson! Having said that, it is only the price of a mobile phone so what the hell!
MN means Maple neck. This is a real fender strat but it's made in Mexico. Nothing wrong with it at all but you can buy American ones on the used market for this kind of money.
:) I thought so it normally says American Standard on the expensive ones. I have a Meixan Strat love it!
