Well im no a fan of EMG's, they are just not for me. I am a fan of strats though and was thinking of getting a HSS strat and just saw this one. Im just comforable with strat necks and in general. Do fender do a fully recessed model or is it not worth having it fully recessed. Just after opinions here.

those are MIM standard strat with FR. i've had a eye on them for a while. the FR is flat on the body and you won't have any pull up. sortos VH style. the brand of FR it has is Ping. i've hear mixed reviews from that brand. try and check it out.

It's not gonna stay in tune because it doesn't have a locking nut (at least not one I can see)

another option is to get a regular strat, and put in a super-vee trem. its a double locking tremolo made for strats. im not sure how good the quality is on one of those Floyds on the strats, i think id go for either installing your own good quality FR or the super-vee.

Bleh, why would you put something like a Floyd on a strat?

it's a real floyd rose but the body isn't recessed so you won't be able to pull up in the trem like you would on ibanez/jackson/that stuff


It just says floyd rose tremolo so im assuming that its an LFR.

A strat? I can understand it. EVH did it along with a lot of other people. A Les Paul, on the other hand....

But yeah, TS, you'd probably be better off buying a used MIM strat and an OFR and getting it installed.

i've seen that super vee but the only vids on youtube i found were from the company. anybody here have first hand experience with these? maybe a vid doing crazy whammy dives?

^ i kinda remember that someone i talked to had one, but i dont remember who it was. the person liked it, but i didnt really get too much info. i really want someone to do a nice review of one so i can see what its really like. ill probably end up with one myself eventually, but that wont be for a while. so someone needs to get one and try it out.

if i find that MIM strat for 95 bucks at my pawn shop i probably will
