    No pics for now as it's not mine, but my bandmate recently bought a used sparkling grey G+L US legacy. Hands down my favourite non-Fender strat so far.

    I really like this Kramer Focus classic I have. Its a 80s MIJ, 22 frets heel adjust neck, with nice grey bottom alnico pickups, vintage spaced bridge, and gotoh deluxe branded kluson style tuners. I upgraded it to a steel block and put a white 62 reissue pickguard on it. Recently refinished the neck in nitro:

    Obligatory Hondo 2 cents

    I've posted it before but I love my Hondo Strat. I bought it in the early 90s. It was my first guitar.

    I have it tuned down a half step with Blue Steel 10s and I swear sometimes I pick it up, plop it to the neck pickup position and it sounds better than my American Standard.

    These guitars are a great platform, and the older versions were made in U.S.A.

    91 G&L SC-3. I have been on strats for 30 plus years, and this is hands down the best single coil tone I have ever played.
    I have or have had awesome Fenders, signatures, stock and modded, customs...but this is number one...
    Poor picture....

    Tradition G12M. Every bit as nice as a MIM Fender. I've owned a bunch of them.

    A friend of mine had the Tele version of that, though I think he's sold it now. I don't have any pics, just this one video clip.
