Little bit of everything

Left to right

Vintage Thomas Blug - now has the EMG David Gilmours in it that are shown in the blue strat
Squier Vintage Modified 70s - scalloped ala Blackmore, got rid of the middle pickup and put in a CS69 in the neck and bridge
2012 MIM Deluxe Strat - Now has a set of Seymour Duncan Antiquity Texas Hot....holy cow those are nice pickups
2015 Fender 10 for 15 Blackout - pair of Seymour Duncan Slash pickups and a ebony board. Killer
1979 Strat - sparkly clean

‘90 something MiM Strat, I love this guitar. It just feels perfect. I tried not to be a Strat guy but it’s impossible. I plan on replacing the Pots, jack and wiring soon, it’s a little finicky but worth it. I need a maple board HSS to go with it.

Just replaced the wiring, pots and jack in my MiM Strat, love it even more now, it’s got I think vintage noiseless pickups that someone had previously installed. It’s just the perfect guitar. That being said, I can’t wait to get another LP.

Forgive me... I had my first Gibson Les Paul (red one, left in my avatar) before it dawned on me that Gibson Les Paul models have different neck profiles and so got my second Gibson Les Paul (to date) (I lucked out too since I found the finish and body I wanted in my 2nd Gibson, the gold one on the right of my avatar pic)..

... I should play more Fender Stratocasters... IDK.
But, I love my Fender I do have, I've already shared my Fender Stratocaster in here, but, I wonder, do Fender Stratocasters have different neck profiles like Gibson Les Pauls have different neck profiles?

I know Fender do different woods, my Fender's neck's maple and it's an ash bodied American Fender Deluxe model from 1999/2000 I bought in 2016 (because it was my most saught out finish that's apparently hard to find since it was the first one I saw in 15, 16 years, so I bought it, because I wanted that finish)...
I'd admit, I really wanted the rosewood version, but... it's all about that body and finish for me; Ash bodied/teal finish.
It sucked more when I learned of Reverb in 2018 and in trying to get the one I wanted, I couldn't when I learned what CETS was and that rosewood was now going extinct, so, that sucks since I really want that one, but, maple, way cool still, Hendrix and Clapton and others had Fender Stratocasters with maple necks, so, what's not to like IMO.
