    It's pretty cool. Tons of almost tele like twang. makes for a different/fun batch of tones to choose from.

    2011 American Standard Maple board 3 Tone Burst. Fralin Blues Special neck/middle and SP43 bridge with the Fralin Blender Pot on the 2nd tone and master tone for all 3 pickups on the 1st tone. Very beefy on the bridge, no icepick. Sounds great with overdrive which is my main sound.

    These are my keepers.

    94 Stratocaster Ultra - my local clist closet find. Bought from original owner, he bought it new and it stayed in its case most of the time. "everything" was still in the case. even the receipt.
    Most amazing neck I've ever held.

    My 2010 American Standard in candy cola. I put CS '69s in the neck and middle, and a SD SSL-5 in the bridge. I was going for a Gilmourish tone, but I still sound absolutely nothing like him... :(

    the trying is half the fun :thumb: I have my own setup for when I want to "sound like Gilmour", it's not what he uses, I'm sure no one would say I sound like him, but damn do I love it

    This is the closest I have - '77 Ibanez Strat copy that's been hacked beyond recognition. Happily it sounds WAY better than it looks!

    Go with the numbers in the neck pocket. Leo Fender had extra necks made as replacements. I have a 1968 and it must have had 10 necks.

    the 2 most beat to hell guitars i own are strats. the one is the fender earlier in this thread, the other a charvel strat. both have heavy checking, worn necks, and have been played to the point where both need refrets.
    this is the charvel strat

    Just going to lower the tone a little;-)

    Hello Kitty Squier Strat. Fun guitar that I sometimes get out for dafter gigs. Actually plays really nicely, I have put a lairier pickup in there, but it has a simple, straightforward appeal.
    [​IMG]

    I picked this one up recently very cheap due in part to the colour. Squier Standard Strat, an early one with the all maple neck, they did Teles in this colour too. Swapped out the pickguard for a black one, and added a Squier 51 pickup in the bridge. Flipped the jack socket over and moved the controls too.
