So, my brother is looking for a new guitar, as his is dilapidated. He's not sure what he wants, but he kinda wants some sort of strat, and as he's a rock'n roll guy like his bro, he'll probably want a humbucker bridge for rhythms, since this will be his only electric guitar.
He's looking to spend about $250. What'cha got?
See if you can find a Squier '51. Excellent modding platform and super cheap ($100 or less) for a fantastic little instrument.
H-S pickup config, no trem, coil tap, big comfy maple neck.
