Hello all, I'm currently considering a '79 anniversary (the silver ones, not the hard to find white)

The '79 is way to far away for me to try on a whim. I know that the '79 anni's have a 4 bolt plate for the neck which would (hopefully) fix the tuning stability of the 3 bolts. Can anyone confirm or deny this with real world experience? is it true how awful the 3 bolts are? Some say dreadful, others say fine! Basically it's either this or a used CS strat!



The 3 bolt pattern was fine and it didn't cause tuning instabilities or was inferior to the 4 bolt. What was inferior was the construction and QC of those 70s Fenders. I'd say that's more indicative of issues of the era than a missing screw.

If I had the scratch for a CS, CS please.


It's still a lot of saving, but some used ones come around at an OK price! I honestly imagine that a nice strat and a nice humbucker loaded guitar is it for me on the guitar front (much bigger fan of amps and pedals) so I'm justifying laying down £1500+ on a guitar as a "Well this is it" buy. Also on the fact that it should hold value better, meaning once you're in the circle of high end instruments, you can move around in it without coughing up a load of cash every time.

And thanks for the advice on 70's guys. I might wait until one close pops up in nice condition for now!

3. Good luck with that.

Just got a guitar shop to order down their other LSL Strat, for me to A/B test this weekend. I'm super excited - the pre owned model I tried is amazing, and comparing it to a new CVST which has locking tuners and noiseless pickups. Likely I'll get one of the two at the weekend...goodbye money.

Looks great! But how does it sound?


Better than it looks. Its not the prettiest of strats imo but just blew all the fenders and suhr strats I have tried (without going to like the £2500+ Custom shop models). Only strats that have got close to this one have been pretty old. It's just a very well made new 'vintage' guitar

Was curious how my modded squier would handle drop C, so whipped this shitty improv together to see. Kent Armstrong Powerblade in the bridge, i think it handled it nicely!

Fiesta Red anyone?

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.

Dammit, I was ready for a gorgeous '50s Strat

Looks great, even if it's an inferior choice of guitar

How about my main guitar, a partscaster, started life as a Spectrum Strat I bought at a thrift shop for $20. The only original things are the body and neck. Hot rail in the bridge, Fender pickups (covers removed) in the neck and middle, Fender machine heads, the bridge plate is off a Cort, the saddles are from an Ibanez, the bridge block is out of a MIM Strat. As for the stickers, I play in a hardcore punk band, so.

Looks like the Super Stacker personality card for my Deluxe Plus should arrive today. Looking forward to seeing what I can do with the in-series tones of positions 2 and 4.
