This has nothing to do with what models you choose or how much they cost.
You could very well build the guitar yourself from scrap metal but what’s important is that you’re comfortable with holding the guitar in your hands, playing it and the sound it creates.
In the 80s and early 90s, Japanese Fenders were well known for being superior to any other models and the quality is still top notch.
