Best strat for under $300-$400?

I like my squier strat....and it was a great first guitar, but everything is cheap, and i don't think that it's worth upgrading almost everything except the main body. I bought a set of GFS pickups, so if everything but the pups are nice, that's okay. Suggestions?

Hunt yourself down a nice Japanese made Fernandes. They're identical to the Japanese made Fenders, except for the headstock design, and they're usually 250-400 bucks.

 

They are discontinued, so you'll have to find a used one. They suit what you have because the stock pickups are not exactly stellar and usually need to be replaced.

It's a little bit different from a strat, but I played an Ibanez Blazer a while back that was nice. They come in various pickup combinations, one of which is s/s/s. Build quality should be very good, hardware should be decent at the least.

You may think they're fugly of course, but that's different.
