Stratocasters, by far. Les Pauls actually aren't copied all that much in comparison. Strats are far cheaper to make and there's more demand for them so that's what all the copy brands go for first.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

As has been said, strats. Hell, even big-name brands derive a lot from strats in their big models(RG's, C-1's, M series ESP's, etc.).

strats. just about every guitar company out there makes an entry level strat knockoff. even fender

on top of that there's so many "superstrats" which i'd count as a strat copy in the way that the design is basically a strat except more pointy and with more "shred-friendly" features.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I think he's talking about people at home modding their own to look like famous guitars. Ex: EVH's frankenstrat, Buddy Guy's Polka Dot Strat.

This is off subject kinda, but I always loved Zakk Wylde's LP with the bottle caps hammered into it.

starts...this also includes all super strats...which are just a slightly different strat
#12
These are the one's I see so often

Edward Van-Halen's Frankenstrat
Edward Van-Halen's Bublebee Charvel
Edward Van-Halen's 1984 and 5150 Kramers

SRV's #1/First Wife 59'/63' Strat

Kurt Cobain's 69' Competition Mustang
Kurt Cobain's 65' Fender Jaguar
Kurt Cobain's 1993 Fender Mustangs (the blue and red ones from the In Utero Tour)
Kurt Cobain's "Vantalistm" Stratocaster

Most of these have a reason

EVH = The Frankenstrat is too expensive, nobody has made an accurate reproduction of the Bumble Bee (which is probably a lost cause now because it's buried with Dimebag Darrell most likely, RIP), and the 1984 and 5150 were reissued by Kramer (Music-Yo!) for a few years.

#1 because the remake by the Custom Shop is too expensive for most people, and the cheaper alternative is not anything close to #1 from wear and looks.

Kurt's guitars ALL are not issued officially, and unavailable. I hang out at the offset/Jag-Stang forums and while Japan does offer Kurt-alikes, there are some minor differences in pickup placement between Kurt's and the Japanese customized. Seems the Compstang and Jaguar are the most wanted. Sure the Jag-Stang was out for a few years, but it seems most people build them because it's pretty well questionable what Kurt had in mind to some people (contours or no contours? what pickups did Kurt want, what about the bridge...etc).
My Current Mains
- 1996 Fender Jag-Stang with EMG Pickups
- 1998 Fender Jaguar with Cool Rails
- 1982 Hondo Paul Dean II (DiMarzio Super II X2)
- 2010 "Fender" Jazzmaster (Home built)
- 2013 Squier VM Bass VI (stock)

I'm pretty sure TS means imitation guitars > copying shape and design.

In that case I would say, don't know. I know no guitar players who soil their guitars to look like famous people's guitars. I can only really imagine people copying EVH themselves. As for other popular artists with distinct guitars, manufacturers often release signature models which defeats the purpose.
#14
like, i know the most copied shape is a strat, but i mean like REPLICA builds or something like that. people making their own copies of EVH's gitar, or steive vai's.

The Nigel Cuntworthy Taint-o-caster is by far the most replicated signature model.I'd post pics of it,but they're illegal in most developed nations.


Also,the EVH Frankenstein has to be up there too.

Look at it this way, I would never buy a high end strat simply because it would constantly remind me of all the cheap knockoffs.

That's why I like my guitars pointy and original.
