I own a Fender Stratocaster, HSS configuration, burgundy with a maple fretboard. Made in Mexico - one step below the American Standard.
I previously owned an American made Strat Plus Deluxe - made in the 90's with 3 different Lace Sensor single pickups. Bought it used but in perfect condition for $500, and stupidly sold it a few years later for the same amount when I lost interest. Dumbass. Prior to that, a black Ibanez RG470 - good only for playing metal. You pretty much couldn't get a decent clean tone with it.
