You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I had a Strat once. It was so shoddy. The bridge even tilted! Talk about tuning instability.

everybody sells them used so cheap they must suck right?


LOL. US made Strats aren't exactly cheap even used. guys sell them when they find out they aren't man enough to play one and go buy a Les Paul.

What you need is a new amp. MGs sound pretty sweet.

Even though this isn't a serious thread I'lljust say strats are super comfy to play whilst leaning back on a couch. They just fit right.

Yes.

Trade it in and get a kazoo.

You can also smoke pot with it too.
