I was looking around for a strat (not a big fan of superstrat shapes) so I went to my local music store and saw a Billy Corgan Strat (In White)

I absolutely love this guitar. The pickups are great, it looks fantastic, and I love the shape and feel of a strat. The only problem is, one of them main reasons I wanted a strat was because of the trem bridge. The BC strat has a hardtail bridge, which doesn't bode to well with me. I'm also looking for something with higher output pickups, like the DiMarzio's on his strat.

tl:dr:
Looking for strat with similar specs as above link,
Don't want a superstrat,
In the 1000$ price field,
Not a big fan of double locking trems either.

I have a Lite Ash Strat with comes stock with some bloody good pickups.
I'm recommending them as they're being discontinued - once they've gone, they're gone - but are bloody good value for money!
