To me, it looks like you are paying for the name rather than particularly quality.
Out of those two, I'd pick the Music man, purely as it is wood finish rather than paint - but it's still rather overpriced.
Guitar value above the 1200- to 1500- range is from age and rarity in my book, new ones are simply not worth going that high.
If you are happy with a paint finish, you may as well get a Fender HH strat, for far less money..
(Not necessarily in black like this one, though)
If you want something worth more, look for a vintage one in a style you like, in reasonable condition & get it refretted etc. as required - that's far more valuable and authentic than any new "fake aged" one.
I have a couple of strat style guitars, but I mostly prefer Les Paul or SG style - and for an HH pickup one, the Gibsons are of course the classic type for that setup.
