    I have 3 signature guitars by Fender. SRV Strat, Yngwie Strat, Kotzen Tele. The SRV Strat is just the perfect Fender for me. The neck has a great profile it just feels perfect in my hands and I really like the tones I can get with the TX Specials (though many people seem turned off by those p/u).

    I bought the SRV in 2002, the YJM in 2007, and the Kotzen in 2014.

    Clapton Model. Feels the best to me, and I find its specs the most versatile.

    Fender Kenny Wayne Strat. Nice fat C neck with jumbo frets.

    I had a SRV and played several others. To me the SRV is a great guitar. It has one of the nicest neck profiles of ant strat ,nice pickups and just a solid guitar.

    I owned a couple SRV strats and totally loved that neck, the gold hardware and urethane finish were turn offs though. I currently have a Eric Johnson Strat w/maple FB...if they made a quarter sawn neck with the SRV profile I would throw it on my EJ strat in a second...I know, musikraft. I was just looking at their site.

    I agree with this- probably lean towards the EJ.

    Marr Jag. All the great things about Jags, none of the crappy things. Great sized neck, thin nitro finish.
    Perfect guitar if you're into offsets.

    I picked up an EJ two weeks ago and haven't been able to put it down since. Comfortable, albeit different, neck profile and pups that nail the classic strat clean sound.

    Jeff Beck Strat. Perfect neck shape, locking tuners, LSR roller nut, no string trees, 2-post trem that works flawlessly, great balanced weight, contour heel, Hot Noiseless pickups that sound very good, sexy tweed case, and comes in two of the best colors....Surf Green and Olympic White.

    I have an EJ. I did change the pickups but this is not really needed, the stock are fine. My EJ is about as good as a Fender gets as long as you like the flatter finger board radius. My EJ has the best fretwork I have ever experienced on any guitar. The only downside is it takes some time for the nitro on the neck to lose the sticky feel.

    EJ or SRV strats! The best "mass production" Fender guitars out there!

    The only one I own, the Warren Haynes Es335. If I was to own another it would definitely be either an EJ Strat or a Steve Morse EBMM.

    I own a Warren Haynes Les Paul. Love it. Great LP tones, has a great neck shape. Ton pros locking bridge keeps it in tune forever. The internal preamp is great for keeping the higher frequencies when you turn down the volume.

    Dave Murray and Jim Root strats. Because they're not some old blues-playing white boy axe. ;) Just a kidding.
    I've had the opportunity to buy the EC and SRV sig strats for great prices, but passed. Just not my thing.

    My choice is pretty obvious...

    Specs match my tastes really well... 22 frets, slightly thicker C neck, rosewood board with LSR roller, locking tuners (Sperzels on the CS model), contoured heel, custom wound hot noiseless pickups, and the two coolest colors in the Strat world IMHO of course...

    The Fender JA-90 Tele. Gibson scale semi-hollow with two P90s. It's like the perfect blend of Fender and Gibson.
