    Fender Stratocaster quality can run the gamut from worthless garbage to priceless gem. Independent builders are great if you're looking for something specific you're not getting in a Fender.

    What are you looking for? Vintage, modern?

    Two of the best playing Strats I have ever touched were MIM Strats. Both were Olympic White, too. One I traded and ended up buying back because it haunted me. It's not like I haven't played a lot of Strats, either....

    Fenders are so varied over the years. I just bought a '92 white Mexi strat for $200. and it is near perfect for me. I've had great used Japan Strats. If I needed to buy a new Strat type guitar, I'd look at Nash, Hahn, LSL, used Fender custom shop, OR build your dream Strat yourself from parts; Warmoth, USA Custom, even ALLPARTS.
    A monkey could do it.
