Help me find a new guitar?

Budget $1200
I want it to be a Fender American STRAT... the only problem is i want it to be a white body,tortoise pickguard..sss configuration.. and maple fretboard.

but i cant seem to find a fender american strat like that.. the only one i found was the deluxe road house which i like the look but not the quailty.

Change the pickguard on this one:

If that isn't what you want, Sweetwater has loads to choose from:

Beyond that, there are other companies that make "Strats" that might meet your quality criteria in your price range. Check out G&L, Godin, Fernandes, Fret-King...and many more.

Agreed. A genuine Fender pickguard won't set you back that much.

Changing the pickguard takes 5 minutes and costs practically nothing. Also, why only US Fenders?

Fair enough, but there are some great higher end MIMs out there, some of them might just speak to you. Also bear in mind MIJ, they churned out some amazing stuff, and even a couple of special edition MIK models (I lust after a Lite ash and those things pop up for like $300-400...)

Also consider the various other brands mentioned that produce great strats, particularly G & L if the fender thing bothers you.

Leo didn't put his name on anything crap. Well, not often.
