I'm sorry, but I hate fender and squire. I've played every strat and tele and the only one I liked was my friend's scalloped 52 telecaster reissue.
The best cheap guitar, HANDS DOWN, is the Dean Evo Xm. its $99, gibson style body. Its absolutely gorgeous, the action out of the box was excellent and the pickups have decent tone for a pair of single coils. For acoustic I have a Fullerton, again, $99 and it's an excellent deal.
Trust me on the Dean Evo though, go play one at a local shop, and compare it side by side to those cheap-ass strats. I've played every cheap guitar out there and Dean is choice.
