Sorry, but I couldn't resist. By the way, I have the Monoprice California Classic Stratocaster clone and it's worth every penny of the $70 I paid. Sorry about the trolling.

A note about this particular Strat, which is taken from the product description on the Adorama website:

"The remarkable new American Deluxe Strat Plus HSS guitar is the next step in the evolution of that great tradition, giving you three humbucking pickup-equipped Stratocaster guitars in one with an innovative design featuring easily interchangeable personality cards" that instantly give you a wealth of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations.

One card comes in the guitar and delivers standard Stratocaster HSS pickup wiring; two extra personality cards are included and let you re-wire" the guitar with specialized pickup and circuitry modifications quickly and easily. Simply pop the color-coded cards in and out of the easy-access compartment in the back and you've just modded your Strat in record time. Further, the American Deluxe Strat Plus HSS features fully solder-less electronics that literally make other great circuit mods a snap."

In a nutshell, the pickups are not the traditional kind, so if the card gets lost, then the guitar does not work. It'll take some doing to replace the pickups if one is so inclined. No word on if this new card system is the way of the future or just a lark, but judging by how often this guitar has hit this price point lately, I think it's safe to say that Fender is sitting on a bunch of them...

Holding out on American Standard Tele to go on sale. But, I would buy this if it is not for the tele.
