Just wondering, not planning on buying one. Which one's good for punk music with lots of distortion? (Since there are so awfully many of them)

one of the ones with a bridge humbucker

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Bridge P90 models work, too. So do singlecoils. Do a search for punk rock + Strats, and you'll find all kinds.

Any guitar an do the job with the right amp and pedals.

Any of them, punk is about being loud and agressive so any guitar would hypothetically do.

Literally any guitar works for punk sounds. People think it has to be humbuckers, but look at Jim Adkins from Jimmy Eat World. He plays a semi-hollow Tele with P-90s.

I find it funny that people think there are specific guitars for punk.

Punk isn't about specifics, it's about doing what you can with what you have. DIY.

If you want to emulate a particular guitarist, that's a different story but guitars for punk? Anything and everything, that's the beauty of it.

As much as I generally agree with you, this time I have to say I don't!

Any guitar really is fine. It's punk. You think Joe Strummer ever pondered the configuration when recording White Riot? Nah.

It don't matter, brother!

Almost any strat. My £80 jaxville strat and my £30 amp can play punk.

I couldn't disagree more. Punk is a wide genre of music, you damn sure would not use single coils/p-90's to play Strung Out or Pour Habit now would you

So many people equate punk to the shity ass sounds of the Sex Pistols/Ramones but since the late 80's Punk started getting more technical and heavier ex: Pennywise,NOFX,Lagwagon,Good Riddance,ect. These bands have very good tone and it is not from playing what ever is lying around

OTOH, you'll find singlecoils and P90s on recordings by The Ramones, Black Flag and The Clash.

Punk isn't about the pickups, its about what you do with them.

Yes I know you will, but what I'm saying is there is punk that single coils and p-90's would not be my choice at all.

There's an ultimate preference, yea. But I'm just saying that the ethos of it is that being strict about it is against the ethos. You can use anything, it don't matter!

But whatever.

Get whatever Strat feels nice to you and is within your budget. The amp will play a big part in your sound as well but I'm not going to bring that up...

You may need to change your amp to get any kind of "good" tone, imo.
