Fender Stratocaster made in Mexico with gig bag
Fender has taken to producing standard strats in Mexico with a slightly lower targeted price range than normal. To achieve the more wallet friendly retail value, slightly different materials are used, but the MiM (made in Mexico) strats are designed to reach the same performance and overall specs as any other guitar that comes down the main Fender assembly lines. While this has sparked a lot of debate about the quality of the instruments, most reports indicate that players purchasing the Mexican made Stratocaster have been incredibly happy with the results.
