so you want an all round fender?
I'd say a strat with HSS config, eith MIM and change the pick-ups or MIA/MIJ (if you can get a japanese one) and stick with the stocks
Get a new amp first, assuming that your Squier doesn't have extreme playability issues.

I like Thinline Tele's personally, but they aren't necessarily the most versatile Fender.
Fat Strats = Versatile
i'd suggest an upgrade in amps beforea new guitar ... a fender hot rod deville if you can afford it

John Mayer's sig strat is amazing, it really is one of, if not the, best strats you can get if you ask me.

I love the Big Dipper pickups.

To thread starter: Amp first, then guitar. There is no best Fender because that is all subjective, however, I am partial to strats.

and I'm a strat man.
