Love strats that aren't made by fender. Carvin Bolt is where it's at.
I had an american deluxe strat and enjoyed it a lot. Replaced noiseless pickups as soon as I got it
I think a black strat with maple fretboard is my favorite looking guitar (yes, I'm aware how simple and plain that is), and they are comfortable as any guitar could possibly be. So yes, I love strats. But I do not own one currently.
I love Strats, mostly for their "modability". Mine started out as a 90s Chinese Squier. I changed the neck for a US one (Highway 1), got a loaded Highway 1 pickguard, replaced the bridge pup for a Super Distortion, and added a Gotoh Floyd Rose. It sounds and plays great, and I love its look too.
Being a big Maiden fan, this is my personal version of Dave Murray's Strat.
For years I hated my Fender Stratocaster - was my first guitar (parents shelled out the $$$) but I wanted a "metal" guitar
Although it eventually took a backseat to new guitars, I always hung onto it for sentimental reasons.
A few years back I decided to spruce the old girl up with a set of SD Blackout singles and now she absolutely CRUSHES! Got 'er tuned to drop C and she can absolutely do metal!
Snagged this cheap USA FM Top Limited Run
I love strats, there was about a two year period where all I played was a vintage style strat (a Knopfler to be exact.) I still love the vintagey ones: 21 small frets, 7.25" radius, 3 low output singles. I still maintain that Fender makes the best strat out there, never played a knock-off that I liked.
I absolutely love my American Strat Plus to death. It was my dad's from the 80s, has traveled a long way in its lifetime and was the guitar I learned on, so its got a TON of sentimental value. I've also modded it a lot and its been my main 6 for years.
I'll throw in a neck pickup some day.
That's another thing actually -- so many parts available for literally every little detail on a Strat. I don't think any other guitar out there has quite so much you can tweak, adjust, change, fine tune, etc.
love strats,gassing for another right now,candy apple red,mmmmmmmmmm....
Love the strat body, and love the strat headstock, but I prefer it to say Charvel and have a Floyd.
You know what I'd like to try some day?
Actually I'd like to know more about Charvels too. I guess I never really paid attention to them... but it seems like that's where Fender has chosen to sell what are effectively modernized Stratocasters?
I LOVE Strats!
Strat respector joining the fun.
You guy have me GASing for a Parts Caster. . . . .
You should get a 7 string Tele to match those
iron maiden sig strats are all you need \m/
charvels are essentially strats with a compound radius 12-16 and a floyd rose. Charvel necks are awesome as well.
I love my jim root sig!
