The best sounding strat I ever played was a 1964 which was so light i thought it might have been made of pumice, had the most incredible neck pickup I've ever heard, SRV chops just made sense on this thing it was so different to any strat I've ever heard.
But then again the second best strat I've ever heard was heavier not in the heavy class but on the upper heavy end of medium weight. That thing didn't sound particularly resonanent unplugged but you plug it in and it has everything and makes some very nice strats just seem like toys in comparison.
I'm in the middle of finalizing a deal on another 60's strat which is amazing and I don't need two strats so was going to sell my 63 neck but I just can't, it's so addictive to play, worn in and comfortable, twice I picked it up after work and all of a sudden it's 4am and I hadn't even thought of dinner ha ha. The necks in 63 seem to be thicker which I think is why they are a favorite of John Mayer, I love how they are a medium C shape up top and get thicker as you go down the neck. Mine is pretty chunky from the 7th fret but not silly chunky. My favorite les paul has the same neck shape a standard from 92 that blows away all the historics I compare it two it terms of the feel on the neck. My favorite fret wire is .103 wide a bit wider than Gibson but narrower than jumbo wire, I first discovered it on a LR-10 Lee Ritenour signiture ibanez from 1980, I was learning songs and struggling then pick up the Ritenour and it was so effortlessly easy to play.
Would love to hear about your strat journey molly or any others and what to your learnt along the way
