OK you are just a moron or really bad at comprehension

I never said 5150 wasn't a super strat. I just said it wasn't a Kramer.

I asked you to tell me what the Charvel I posted was or what a hard tail RG would be defined as because they are super strat with or without the trem. Just because the first Van Halen guitar with a FR is your idea of SS genesis doesn't make it so.

By Definition the FrankenStrat had a FR. You can call the pre-FR EVHs frankensteins, but by definition they are not SuperStrats.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankenstrat

Overview of the Frankenstrat

The Frankenstrat represented Van Halen's attempt to combine the sound of a classic Gibson guitar with the physical attributes of a Fender. It was originally made from an ash Stratocaster body, with pickup routing that Eddie altered to fit a Gibson PAF humbucking bridge pickup.[1] It had a maple neck and fretboard, and chrome hardware. It developed through several early paint schemes ultimately into the now famous combination of red, with black and white stripes. It is a six-string guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo.

How am I wrong? I know what the Frakenstrat is/was. All I did was correct you when you claimed it was a Kramer. If you really want to think Eddies Kramer's were anything more than a Rebranded Barreta go crazy, I don't care. I know they are Super Strats.

I then asked you to tell me what a hard tail RG or Jackson would be defined as. I'm still waiting for an answer. I don't mind being wrong, it how I learn and I'm a good learner.

Educate me.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superstrat

"There is no formal definition of a superstrat"

"Differences typically (but not necessarily) include more pointed, aggressive-looking body and neck shapes, different tonewoods, increased number of frets, usage of humbucking pickups and Floyd Rose tremolo systems."

Alright, break it up. Ground rules:

- If it doesn't have a middle and neck single coil, it's not a Strat.
- If it has a Floyd Rose, it's not a Strat.
- If it has a humbucker in the bridge, and doesn't have a vintage trem, it's not a Strat.

I think that covers everything. Give me loopholes so I can close them.

this is about as retarded as arguing over the unique specs that define a OD pedal from a distortion pedal. why do we feel we are qualified to assign exact meanings to vague definitions on this forum?

"i feel a super strat is these things so you better see things my way!"? wtf is that?

6 of those aren't Superstrats.

They've got to have a Floyd Rose/Kahler locking style bridge on them.

Ibanez, Jackson, Kramers etc with locking trems qualify as SuperStrats. Any guitar without a locking trem does not.

I thought "superstrat" meant mainly the shape.

EDIT: Lol, after reading the last page I realized this argument already happened, and that this thread is going down-hill pretty fast.

Does my SSS Charvel count because it's a Charvel.

I was thinking SuperStrat only took shape into consideration. Since there's no definition regarding trems, etc.

LP only makes threads like this and posts like this so that he can force feed his opinion down every other person's throat. That's what I see him do anyways.

Sorry guys I did not mean to start a big heated debate, was not my intention at all.

This Wiki Link posted earlier explains it all pretty good, especialy the 'Comparison" chart on it.


That's a Double Fat Strat.


Thanks for posting the definition and very interesting article, Way Cool!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superstrat

"Superstrat (sometimes spelled as sooper strat or super-strat) is a name for an electric guitar design that resembles a Fender Stratocaster but with differences that clearly distinguish it from a standard Stratocaster, usually to cater to a different playing style. Differences typically (but not necessarily) include more pointed, aggressive-looking body and neck shapes, different tonewoods, increased number of frets, usage of humbucking pickups and Floyd Rose tremolo systems.[1][2][3]"

Nothing wrong with an educated discussion. It is those that resort to juvenile insults that ruin intelligent discussions on these forums. All you and I did, Way Cool, was post good information, there was no reason for others to go berserk and start flaming childish insults.

Or those too stupid to read posts or answer questions and contribute to a discussion any further than using cut and paste quotes from wiki that they clearly haven't read, clutter up threads full of people who are willing to talk about hear and who have forgotten more about guitars and gear than you will ever know, to then bitch and wonder why the regulars here get annoyed.

All you do is turn up and make stupid comments or try to force you uninformed, retarded half formed fetuses of opinions down people throats. So either grow up, think about you are going to post or discuss. Do some research and actually contribute to this forum or **** off.

Ad hominem insults are indicative of a weak juvenile who cannot articulate his opinion and gets mad when an alternative opinion is expressed. Since the juvenile is incapable of expressing himself intelligently, he resorts to insults which are a violation of forum rules.
