ST Special S v’s ST59

Hi, I new here and have just started to add Hohner guitars to my collection. I’m looking for a Strat and really like the ST special S but struggling to find one. I see ST59 guitars are more readily available but are they as good?

ive got the ST59 and a Special S and there isnt much difference. the Special S was the first guitar i ever bought, I dont think there is much difference outside the colours available.

Thanks Dave very helpful
