I wavered on phrasing the responses to the poll in a clearer manner. I regret having not done so, as it is a bit confusing. If this helps: "Yes" my number 1 is NOT a Fender or "No, my number 1 IS a Fender.My No. 1 Strat is a Warmoth neck on a B Hefner body, with Lace Sensors. The only Fender necks that are big enough for my old hands are on their basses. Hopefully, I interpreted the question when I voted 'Yes', meaning my No 1 is not a Fender. I suspect @nosmo is not the only one who would vote 'No' on the basis his main Strats are not Fender. To that extent, the wording of the question is a little counter-intuitive.
Oh wow that Tokai is gorgeous!

Tokai, same as my other guitar model types.
I got all nostalgic about the 80’s with a couple of Roadstar II’s. One is ok, but needs a little soldering help. It’s a project for later.Nope. #1 is my maple board strat. #2 is my Rosewood board Strat. #3 is my Tele. #3.5 is my ES-335. #4 J-45 #5 Paul.
All "cork sniffing" American name brand instruments. There's a lot of good internationally made gear out there. Much better quality than what was coming out in the 90's & 2000's. I just don't have any of it right now.
I might get an Ibanez one day to relive my 90's glory days. Who knows.
I bought a 70s Fender Tele that somebody had removed the Fender logo and replaced it with a Schecter logo!At the moment my only "strat" is a Schecter Nick Johnston Traditional:
In the future? Who knows; I'm still enjoying the Schecter but their necks are bit on the thin/flat radius side so often it sits while I play my Tele (which is a Fender ) or my Les Paul. I may eventually need to move on to something with a little bit larger neck - frankly my Tele, an American Performer with Fender's typical "Modern C" neck, is significantly larger feeling than the Schecter neck.
