I used to have a very complicated pedal board.

If you really want to improve your sound, invest in a nice tube amp and a good pedal rig with lots of pedals.

. A better instrument will also help with improving my skills on the guitar. Being able to play faster, improve technique..and so on.
The are some things I want this guitar to have.. I need my guitar to have a tremelo, a rosewood fingerboard, 6 strings, a stratocaster body shape, 22 or 24 frets and if possible stable in value. I prefer new but second hand will also be an option.
Any suggestions ...and why?

I have a couple of Fender Custom Shop Strats/Tele's one being a Masterbuilt that's amazing, but if I were to get another guitar, PRS is at the top of the list, they have some of the best playing necks I've ever played. The stock wammy's on a Strat can be more than a challenge to keep in tune, so if you plan on using it much I wouldn't recommend that route. I loved my Les Pauls but have sold them off mainly because of the weight and a bad back. Which brings me back to the PRS if I were to purchase another axe. I would go play a bunch of different guitars and go with what feels right to you. If you play enough of them you'll start to get an idea of what you like and don't like.
What style music do you play? That's a major factor in buying a guitar.

Ultimately it's not about the instrument; it's about your technique, and the passion you bring to the music.
Personally I would rather hear a kid with a cheap Korean 6stg. playing and singing from his soul and heart than a person shredding repetitious wank fest on an overpriced big brand artist model.
What do I know...I'm a bass player....
