I am very impressed by what Fender is putting together in Indonesia. Frankly, I think the Squire’s out of Indonesia are every bit as good or better than Fender’s mid-priced line. I have a strat with three lipstick pickups that’s killer. Among those instruments, I would include the new Mando-Strat, a reissue of the classic Fender Electric Mandolin that was made from the late 50’s through the early 70’s. I’ve owned a ’63 and this mandolin–which I paid $250 for through Music 123–is every bit as good as that one but without the price tag.
