If you can rent a strat, maybe try that and see if you use the bridge pup.
I never used it, so I replaced it with a jbjr(minihumbucker), and I use that a lot.

I usually change my strings every 3 to 4 months regardless of how much I've been playing. Sometimes I'm lazy and it'll stretch to 5/6 months. They definitely sound and look done by that point.

Thats a close race for sure. I would have to go with yamaha, I like the sound of the englemann spruce and the wider nut(for my sausage fingers) makes it easier to fingerpick.

You should really go out and try a bunch. You seem to know the sound you want.
