I'm looking at Strats but there's a ton of models. Apart from vintage models. At a guitar show today I saw two American made Strats that caught my eye. One was $2300 and the other was $900. Other than the obvious difference in tuners, where's the additional $1400. The $2300 is not a Custom Shop Strat. Also, the truss Rod was not visible at the nut on $2300 Strat. Is the cost difference in Body Wood. FYI, I'm looking for a Strat for my Studio and want a quality Strat with "THE" Strat tone. I also want a Maple Fret board. But I'm not looking to break the bank. Any advice is appreciated.
