Re: G&L Tribute vs MIM Fender
The build quality of Fender Mexico vs. Korea is extremely comparable these days. So when it comes to the necks and bodies, my opinion is that you have no difference in quality there. What you have to look at is the features/cost and that's where I think G&L Tributes absolutely slaughter the Fender MIM. The pickups are cooler, the bridge is cooler, and the guitar overall speaks to my preferences. If you have to buy sight unseen, get the G&L. If you get the chance to play both and the MIM Fender feels better to you and sounds better (I'll bet it won't) then buy the Fender. But that's the only reason! Otherwise get the G&L. Also, did I mention you should get the G&L?
