Either the nicest playing example of a late 50s Gretsch 6122 I could find.

I like that but would want the wrap-around bridge. '54?

For me it'd be a custom-built Strat. I don't think there's one out there that ticks all the boxes so I'd have to spec it myself. Wouldn't go vintage for the same reason.
