Mexican strats are good and look into the OLP guitars. They sound good stock and have nice necks. They look like the old Eddie Van Halen Musicman guitars.

Fender Strat w/Duncans
Hand Built(by me) guitar w/Duncans
Ibanez RG321MH
Bugera V22
Peavey Vyper 30 Watt

Well personally I think an upgraded standard strat can be a fantastic guitar. What's your budget, exactly, and what type of music do you play?

yeah, those should be fine (i haven't tried the ibanez though). yamaha pacifica would be a good call, too (112 or above).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Yes, the MIM Strat would be nice, but the Ibanez ART100 wouldn´t be bad either. It all depends on what you like best. Just go to a guitar store and play some guitars and pick the one that feels best in your hands and sounds best to your ears.
