Pedro Strats

I thought these Mexican stratocasters are not actually made there but assembled in Mexico from prefab American Parts?? Especially the signature strats.......Jimmie Vaughn, Robert Cray
Does anybody know if this is the case?

There is the artist models like the Robert Cray which is MIM with premium parts (some from the US I'd guess). IT would run around $750 or so compared to $500 for a MIM standard.. The Custom Artist models are the MIA signature series - the RC Signature would run about 3x+ as much. (In the US $650 vs. $2099)

I guess if someone local was looking for that guitar, they are saving the taxes. Otherwise it's a tad on the high side, I'd say $600 to $650 is the best most would do for that particular guitar. Notice the pale necks on them since last year. Prior to that they had the vintage tint which I prefer anywho.
