You all must be tired of all the amp questions I've been throwing at you guys :P. Anyhow now I'm wondering about the Fender Twin 100 watt combo like the title implies. I love the clean tones but I have not ever played the amp with much gain when I have played the twin. I know the amp is infamous for it's clean tones but what about when you crank that gain up and really decide to rip somebody a new one with your hard rock or metal riffs? Or even something like grunge?

The Sex Pistols use gibsons correct? I'll be using a 65 reissue MIA Stratocaster with this amp.

Yeah, he used a Les Paul.
Really, if you add a boost pedal before a Fender it can get pretty savage. Not chugga, chugga, chugga, my strings are slapping against the fingerboard, chugga, chugga but pretty heavy nonetheless, especially if you EQ it right. If you are using a strat my guess is you aint a chugga anyway, correct?

I can actually get some good chugga, chugga with this stratocaster, I don't know what the deal is with this guitar but it can get some monster metal tone. I've owned high end ibanez's and I'd take this guitar over any Ibanez/Jackson i've played any day for metal. I really hit the jackpot with this guitar of mine. Like you said though.. I'm not looking for chugga, chugga specifically because I really only play things like that by myself in a room.

I believe they're Kinman pickups now that I talked to the person who gave me the guitar about the pickups. It was a gift from my dad, he said if I could learn how to play he would give me this stratocaster. I've been playing for something like 6-7 years now and I obviously got to keep it. I've played many guitars since then and this guitar is by far my favorite guitar. It has a black body and a white pick guard with a maple neck, and IMO that neck is what makes the guitar so special.

(sorry for the rant about my strat.

I still play my old Ibanez Blazer all the time complete with a worn out fingerboard and I own a custom built masterpiece as well. Nothing feels as comfortable in your hands as the guitar you learned to play on.
