so i already own a fender mexican hss strat. i was lookin at a 60th aniversary sss american strat with a maple neck for 699 with case. i need some help pullin the trigger. im probably trading in my les paul since i dont play it at all. but would u guys justify having one humbucker strat(with a coil tap) and an american standard?

ps. it plays really nice

Get it. Having more than one of the same guitar isn't a bad thing, and here they are two very different ones! It's like having an M-1000 and an M-II. Not only are they different models, they are different quality levels too.

Do it, I'd find a way to keep the LP for the melancholy (but it is an epi, if it isn't higher end epi not worth keeping around for LP tones when needed).

Having a straight sss strat ain't bad either. You can more easily do feedback stuff with that pickup (all the coil splitter humbuckers don't like to feedback still in my experience) and you can keep one in Eb or something or install new pickups on one to define it more than the other.

As said earlier, two strats, but the models are different and the overall tone is gonna be similar but different still. I'd bargain that they have completely different woods being used.

Get it man. When you sell your LP you can use the money to mod either of your strats to make them less similar.

This, I love Les Pauls, SGs, certain Teles, and Strats are great too but I'd be exstatic if next to me were these 5 strats and thats all I had for life...

1) SRV sig strat (lefty tremolo and Texas Special Pickups)
2) A fat Strat
3) an HSS strat
4) a SSS strat
5) a GnL sss strat

of course, all with different woods and probably with different strings. I'd turn the fat strat to a metalish guitar with light strings, HSS as a mellow guitar with some bite with 10s, SSS strats with .10-52 or .11s for classic rock and alternative, and the SRV with .13s or .12s. for blues-rock goodness. Of course, if I had the

i bought that same exact guitar in a local shop for 200 dollars, it is amazing and ever since I bought it it has never left my sight, my main guitar now it is absoulutley fantastic, I would buy it for sure, the pickups sound fantastic also, I recently replaced the neck and pickups but the body style is some what diffrent then standard american strats, I would buy 5 more if I could find them and if I had the money.

I've got 3 strats and I'm looking to get 2 more in the near future. Having 2 isn't a bad thing.
