Also new at Swee Lee are the Deluxe Strats- pictured above, the Roadhouse version.
And this one, the regular Deluxe version (Both models listing for: $1,239). We note that, despite being Mexican, the new breed of Deluxe models are replicating selected American features (rounded string retainers, 22 frets, etc.). So the psychology of being in this price bracket (formerly the American Special's price point) is that you get American specs albeit the Mexican label. Worth it? It's a personal take.
