I love strats! My favorite guitarist (Gilmour) is a known strat man. The only thing that I don't like about them is the feel of the body, cause I'm kind of a small guy. Other than that, few things compare with the tone of an overdriven strat! You must be a happy man!:applause:

Nothing wrong with Strats, or any other guitars. It would be too boring if we just stuck to those from one manufacturer.

Nice guitars, I have four, so they must be :)

Indeed I am! But, it's a culture shock...I have to make friends with it.
I've been playing Gibsons for so long, it'll take some getting used to!

HG....that's a beautiful strat!

I agree, John! Well said! It seems that no matter what, you can only get
that Strat sound....from a Strat! I've seen Gibson type guitars with coil
taps on them, and even with single coils switched on, it still doesn't come
close to the Strat sound.

I've also noticed that alot of guys like Townshend, Clapton, Beck...that I used to see playing Gibsons...they're all playing Strats now. There must be something to it!

I mean...what a great clean sound, and so many varieties! Ed King
said that he played a Strat on "Sweet Home Alabama" because it
"sounds more like Ala-bammy!"

*LOL!*
Well, they're not for everybody, I agree! Hey, I just think that some things
sound better on a Strat and some on a Gibson. I wanted another tool to
add to my toolbox!
I agree, finding a good one is tough. Then again, for me, finding a good
guitar, Gibson OR any other brand is tough.

Ya know I dont really know if this is a good one or not. Ive never played it, I cant. She just gave it to me, and said do something with it, she tried to give me his PRS, and SG but I couldnt take them I told her to keep those they were his favs. Just told her I would see what I could do with the strat so far all Ive done is just look at it, thats hard enuff to do. I would have loved to had the other guitars but some things just arent right, if I sell it I'll give her the coin. But I'll damn sure never play it. Just cant do it. It may turn to dust but I wont play it.

IMO everyone needs a Strat for those 1 or 2 songs that require that sound.

I think they feel like toys compared to a LP, but that's just my opinion.

I added the Clapton circuit to my Am Std Strat, I highly recommend this mod.

I have Duncan JB's on my bridge and neck, and Fender Hot Noiseless
pickup in the middle, which sounds like two regular humbuckings
but when used with middle pickup sounds like a strat.
The sound of the guitar is reminisant of Jeff Becks Les Paul from
Beck Ola album
Doesnt sound tinny at all.

My white strat has Gilmore EMG's and preamp.

But my Gibson Les Paul is still my favorite, i just couldnt
afford one till this summer!
Both my Strats together cost less than my Les Paul (even with addons)

I am positivly nuts over a Jeff Beck Strat ( more recent) at one of my local shops here , and the owner says it sounds absolutly killer in my hands tone wise, I was running it mostly thru a Mesa Rectoverb, and not a major Boogie fan but this combo cooked :applause::applause:
after hearin the Clapton Pre Amp Mod Its a worthwhile, I'd take it with new noiseless Fenders , with Lace Sensors its not as good IMHO
