i'm looking for a stratocaster thar is versatile. i'm want a sweet and clean sound for blues and jazz but i also want one that gives me a good crunch...

well, which strat should i pick?

do i have a more versatile strat with one hum and two single-coils than with 3 single-coils?

and what are the characteristics of maple, ash, alder, mahogany, etc in both neck and body?

and what the hell is a fat strat?

oh, i forgot to mention that i want a tremolo bridge guitar


PS: i'm a nOOb


EDIT: and what is the diference between a highway strat and a "normal" strat?


thanks

a fat strat is a normal stratocaster with a humbucker instead of a single coil in the bridge position...

you can't get more versatile than with a fat strat, it will cover your styles without any problem.

you would want a fat strat with a pickup swap for sure.



is the pickup swap a switch? don't all strat have that?

No, he means get a better, aftermarket pickup. The stock pickups on Fat Strats are notoriously weak.

Oh, btw, as far as how certain woods sound in certain applications, no better resource than www.warmoth.com Go to guitars --> bodies --> body wood descriptions, and they have the same for necks.

And there is no appreciable difference between a Highway Strat and a Standard Strat other than the Highway Strats are made in Mexico but assembled in the US. And they're painted with a flat ("satin") finish.
