Well, I've decided I really want a Strat. They play like a dream. Now, I don't have the excess funds for a really high end one; but I feel the Standard will be sufficient.


Now, what's the difference between the triple single coil, or the HSS?


And, while I'm at it, is it a good guitar for the $500 I'll spend? I liked how it played, from what I could tell.

The HSS has a humbucker in the bridge. IMO, it's not a strat without 3 SC's, but whichever fits your style better, get.

Mainly, Punk to Metal. I've got my other guitar for the deeper tunings/therefor the heavier songs. So the Fender will probably be dedicated mostly to the Punk/Classic Rock.

Go with the HSS then

Edit: ^ awesome, the Humbucker in the bridge adds needed umph when playing punk or classic rock, if he needs a single coild sound he has the middle.

Well if you go for the HSS you've got more versatility. Screw the buggers who say a real strat is one with single coils, maple necks and mia..

Although I am partial to Strats with maple necks over rosewood..
