According to the font of guitar knowlegde here on UG:

Quote by LP1951
If it does not have a Locking Trem, it is not a SuperStrat, ie, A basic fat strat is not a SuperStrat.


Quote by LP1951
EVH's Kramer with the Floyd Rose, defined the species. Without a locking trem, it is not a SuperStrat.





So if you own a guitar that doesn't quite meet the strict standards required to be a Super Strat, congratulations, you have a "NQSSS"

So my fellow NQSSS Owners please post them here and we can try to keep the not so rare breed alive!

NQSSS

I think my Aria Pro II Magna MA-15 fits the bill here.

Big pics so I shall put them in spoiler tags.




My Kramer also fits the bill, but it's really ugly and it's been posted a million times here.

I like the look of that, is that one of the Japanese ones?

You should post your Kramer. Guitar porn is always good. No matter if its a bit of a butter face

Does a guitar with a floyd, but single coils only, also count as a not-quite-a-SuperStrat Strat?

Nope my APII is Korean made, but HOLY HELL does she sound fantastic.

Okay. Ugly Kramer coming up.



Before anyone asks. No my Kramer does NOT have a locking trem. It has a crappy OFRII and a plywood body. Still sounds killer though.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

M-I?

They are seriously good guitars, I'd probably have one if I hand lost my job, I found one for silly money for sale the other day.

Really good guitars, simple but so fantastically put together.

Also, I found a picture of my old guitar. I wish I never sold it

Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Because there are apparently different classifications. It wouldn't be fair to exclude certain types.

Gotta respect every type, you know.

Quote by Roc8995
I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

The slugs in the pickups for telecasters are from old winchester rifles, which is why they sound so country.
