Nice man. Love that color.

+1. Put a solid set of pickups in it and this is a perfectly fine strat. I've always liked the MIM line, especially when you can get then used at a good price like you did.

Thanks for all of the praises. I was honestly on the fence about buying it cuz $300 kinda hurt my bank account tbh :lol:

That being said, upgrades will be a ways down the road

That's pretty much identical to my first guitar. Let a friend borrow it to learn, and he sold it... :cry:

The stock pickups will do well to get you started. No need to rush to upgrade them. I’ve heard way worse singles than those. Should you upgrade them? Yes absolutely. And there’s tons of good options out there.
