In your opinion, what is the best sounding/playing Fender Strat you've come across? I must admit that since I'm a vintage guy at heart, I tend to buy one Relic after another looking for that special something --- but I'm wondering if there are other models that generally sound and play better, yet I don't give them a glance 'cause they're not "Custom Shop." There are many boutique builders out there that arguably build a better Strat, but there is something about that Fender sound. I may go the boutique direction soon, but there must be Fenders that can match some boutique offerings. Is this a "run the racks" kind of thing where there is no consistency in models and you just have to play everything and find the best one, or does Fender really knock it out of the park with certain models that seem consistently good? Anyway, what is the best sounding/playing Fender Strat you've come across?
