My question:

Are there ANY good (comparible with Fender) Stratocaster Copies? Or is Fender basically all I would look at for a strat, and thats that?

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and I can get a good Fender MIM strat for about $500 so it's no big deal, but I'm curious. Theres tons and tons of LP copies, but I never hear about any good strat copies.

I couldn't name one, but without comparing them yourself, you wouldn't really tell, and peoples feedback might not help all that much either. I would just say, if you can get your hands on them, try them, see what you like, ortherwise, if you like the sound, get a real strat.

Well my Austin is in NO way comparable to even a MIM Strat, but still, it has a solid alder body, maple neck/fretboard, 3 single coil pickups to emulate the 50's rock sound, wilkinson vibrato, and i got mine on sale for 345 with tax, its made in China, so MAKE SURE you test before you buy, but get it set up well, and its a sweet guitar. Mine is in tobacco sunburst...the main reason was cause i couldnt afford a decent strat, but this one caught my eye, and i loved it, so i bought it

tokai are the closest you will get to american strat, that , or a jap spuier from the 80s
" the lick is simply a diminished harmonic minor arpeggiated sequence of dominant stitonics descending down in whole steps in the Phrygian mode...with a raised fourth.

Warmoth Strats are sweet. Got a chance to play one not too long ago.
