Alright, had my SX strat for a few weeks now and...WOW! Sweet neck, solid body, stays in tune nicely and I dont have to block the damn trem!The finish is sexxy and the only complaints I have are the bent switch and the vint. white covers and knobs. Otherwise awesome.
PROS:
Nice Neck
Good Stock Pups
Solid Construction
Stays in tune
CONS:
Bent switch(CURSE YOU UPS!!!)

Upgrades to come:
Repaint. White backgrnd. w/graffiti all over it (I mean COVERING it)
Drop in one of THESE!
MAYBE a coil split or momentary kill...:rolleyes:

Call or email Kurt at Rondo, I'm sure he would be more than happy to send you a new switch.

How does the guitar sound acoustically? compared to Mexican strats

~BETTER~ the mexican strat is very weak compared to this, and the SX has a bit more range. It has a more modern feel, the mexi strat in my opinion just sounds kinda cheap compared to this.

Falldowngoboom4, how is your strat coming along?

Are the bodies on the SX guitars the same dimensions as those from Fender? In particular, are they thin bodies like the Squier Affinity series or are they like the Stander series? Do they easily accept aftermarket Fender parts (new bridge, pickguard, neck, etc.)?

Hmmm... Their blue and green teles and vintage white strats are enticing for modding.

hollowbodies: 1960s kent americana - 1960s truetone speed-demon
solidbodies: 1996 fender standard james burton tele - 2005/6 squier deluxe trans strat
---> rat 2 + rat 2 + deluxe memory man + c.bread semaphore + e13 soda meiser + zvex lo-fi loop junky
OR (noisy, not true bypass at all) ---> 70s morley power fuzz wah + dod 490 phasor
---> randall commander 210 - epiphone valve junior - univox minimax u4100: 1x15

THE FALL: totally wired ++ THE FALL: big new prinz ++ THE FALL: bombast/crusiers creek
DEVO ++ THE DIRTBOMBS ++ THE KING BROTHERS

they are actually very near to the standard series. mine cant take a fender bridge b/c its a tune-o-matic. otherwise yes. they DONT feel like they might snap. Progress is good. Probably going to star paint in a week or so. After the new pup gets here the pickupp is going to be milled.

For the most part no, you will need to do some modification to get Strat trems and Tele bridges to fit. I believe the Strat hard tale is interchangeable. Lots of good info here http://www.agileguitarforum.com/
