OK you are just a moron or really bad at comprehension

I never said 5150 wasn't a super strat. I just said it wasn't a Kramer.

I asked you to tell me what the Charvel I posted was or what a hard tail RG would be defined as because they are super strat with or without the trem. Just because the first Van Halen guitar with a FR is your idea of SS genesis doesn't make it so.

By Definition the FrankenStrat had a FR. You can call the pre-FR EVHs frankensteins, but by definition they are not SuperStrats.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankenstrat

Overview of the Frankenstrat

The Frankenstrat represented Van Halen's attempt to combine the sound of a classic Gibson guitar with the physical attributes of a Fender. It was originally made from an ash Stratocaster body, with pickup routing that Eddie altered to fit a Gibson PAF humbucking bridge pickup.[1] It had a maple neck and fretboard, and chrome hardware. It developed through several early paint schemes ultimately into the now famous combination of red, with black and white stripes. It is a six-string guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo.

How am I wrong? I know what the Frakenstrat is/was. All I did was correct you when you claimed it was a Kramer. If you really want to think Eddies Kramer's were anything more than a Rebranded Barreta go crazy, I don't care. I know they are Super Strats.

I then asked you to tell me what a hard tail RG or Jackson would be defined as. I'm still waiting for an answer. I don't mind being wrong, it how I learn and I'm a good learner.

Educate me.

"There is no formal definition of a superstrat"

"Differences typically (but not necessarily) include more pointed, aggressive-looking body and neck shapes, different tonewoods, increased number of frets, usage of humbucking pickups and Floyd Rose tremolo systems."

Alright, break it up. Ground rules:

- If it doesn't have a middle and neck single coil, it's not a Strat.
- If it has a Floyd Rose, it's not a Strat.
- If it has a humbucker in the bridge, and doesn't have a vintage trem, it's not a Strat.

I think that covers everything. Give me loopholes so I can close them.

this is about as ******ed as arguing over the unique specs that define a OD pedal from a distortion pedal. why do we feel we are qualified to assign exact meanings to vague definitions on this forum?

"i feel a super strat is these things so you better see things my way!"? wtf is that?

Ibanez, Jackson, Kramers etc with locking trems qualify as SuperStrats. Any guitar without a locking trem does not.
