I already have a am strat and I'm looking for another strat-type guitar for a backup. My options are as follows:

1) new american strat candy cola / maple - $750
2) new old stock G&L Legacy fullerton red / maple - $700

Which is the better value for the money? Which one would you choose? Thanks.
They are both made by fender so they would be about the same
