I tried many strats before buying this one, Fender mim standards, American standards/specials etc i even owned a squier classic vibe 60's strat which is good for the money but not good period.
The classic player strat is good for the money but also good PERIOD, I would put it up against an american strat any day of the week (something i could not say about the CV60) It is a 100 times better than the mim standards and i also favored it over the american strats because it has something extra, the aged look, the 12" radius board, the custom shop 69 pickups...All these factors made the guitar look, sound and play better than the american in my opinion! It really satisfied my need for a 60s strat and is one of my favorites (out of 7 guitars)
P.S a mim standard with upgraded pickups can be nice, but then it is about the same cost as this anyway, so you might as well get this one from the start and you will have an overall better guitar too :)
I am happy about this instrument, the sound is really vintage/ single coil, and it has a look that kills. The finish is excellent with one exception: on the back (only) there are a few long straight lines corresponding to the joints of the various parts making up the body, probably due to a less than perfect sanding.
