Just purchase two of them.

Better than most American strat, except the Robert cray 4700 strat.
Music background: Gospel

If you want a Strat, you want the Robert Cray MIM Strat.

They kept improving it, until the 2012 refinement should be selling for a lot more money. Somebody forgot to tell somebody to stop making it better. I just got it today. I am a very, no I am more than that, I am so pleased, I can't tell you how pleased. It's got all the fit and finish of a well-made Fender. It's got sound that DEFINES a Stratocaster, you don't need to change the pick ups they are perfect the way they are, hot , clear and yet do all the dirty that you want, they come through the way they should. It plays the way it should, easy--effortlessly. And, the way Sweetwater fusses over the set up, you can go at it right away out of the box. All the great reviews are for a reason, this guitar doesn't lie, it's the real deal. You'll like it so much you'll probably want to name it, like I did. I call it....Stratena, Goddess of FenderLandia. I think I'm in love.
Music background: Former pro muscian, returning to the music.
