    Aristides can make a fine bloated Saber with speed holes and a few token single coils, but not a Strat. :lol:

    I was really hoping that would be the case, then i realized i don't like their body shapes and they don't offer anything more traditional-looking.

    Nick always puts out guitar pre-orders after I buy stuff. He secretly doesn't want my business I guess. But if he gets me a MiJ trem 8, neither hell or high water or my adulting will stop me!

    I'm already excited for the NAMM 2020 thread so I can hope for guitars I won't get again.

    The SSO definition of a strat is something with single coils and a non-floyd trem. The NGD will use the phrase "quack sound".

    Well those can’t be strats. They need 3 strat single coils.

    Ah, I left out the need for a middle pickup, otherwise you can't use the phrase "quack sound". But yea, with middle pickups these would all be SSO strats.

    According to the militant tele group any tele shape without tele pickups isn’t a tele.

    So checks out.

    We're just being pedantic at this point. We all know what a Stratocaster is, and we all know that having a couple base specs of one doesn't necessarily make any guitar platform a Strat, in either feel (neck shape, fretboard radius, body cuts, bridge type) or sound (pickup type and location and bridge type again).

    Just like not everything with two humbuckers a stop tail is a Les Paul.

    I thought we were talking Strats. :lol:

    These are all just typical Aristides-style guitars, but made of wood. +1 for the plastic there, but that's just a thin layer, ideally the whole guitar would be made of multiple layers of such material with some sort of foam insides.

    Like obscenity I’ll know it when I see it.

    I think riff trauma’s Aristides in his ngd is pretty close. But it’s not really a strat.

    Then what makes a strat? Fender has several revisions on the base 'strat' model, if it's the sum of it's parts then how much of it does another brand need to use to be able to make their own take on a strat and call it that? If it isn't design then the Silver Sky can't be labeled PRS' take on a strat, and neither can Suhr's Classic S Type.

    It's just kind of pointless to make distinctions of that level because not even the Fender Strat can have a pinpointed replicate-able tone if we're going to acknowledge that no two guitars made from the same woods will sound completely identical. IE: SRV's original guitar vs his replicated signature, which can be strung the same and have the same setup but inherently the woods will not be a 100% match to his original sound.

    Inherently putting single coils into a guitar with a smooth/vintage feeling tremolo will get you in the same ballpark and vibe as picking up a strat would. When I owned my SSS 060, I played the kind of music and licks I would play on my Suhr Strat.
