on a topic of how you would like to be buried...

Alot of people say the differences between an American strat and a Mexican Strat aren't that huge. So, if you're looking to spend a grasnd, I'd go with the first one.
Guitars:
Fender Standard Strat
Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass
Martin DX1

Amps:
Peavey Classic 50/212

Pedal Board:
Gator 8-Bus
Boss TU-2 Tuner
Digitech Bad Monkey
Ibanez CF7 Chorus/Flanger
ISP Decimator
Dual button footswitch

How about one of the 50's/60's models? The necks on the 50s ones are amazing, and I'd hope you could get a good vintage tone out of them.

I'd say go for the first one. and if in time you don't like the pickguard you can always just change it

I meant these:
50's
60's
70's


Those are very nice. I considered buying one because I love the glossy vintage neck. But I don't like the fact that you can't adjust the truss rod without having to remove the pickguard. The truss rod nut is hidden in the neck pocket.

Also, these classic models are MIM. I've seen an Esquire of the same series have misaligned tuners, which was a disappointment.

That's just the 50's one, right? I wouldn't really let that stop me. SOOO good looking!

Yeah, the 60's Strat has a special routing in the pickguard to let you access the truss rod. And the 70's Strat has a bullet nut at the headstock.
