1) which one do you like more?
2) which one plays better?
3) what the **** are talking about?
4) which of the many many different types of strats and thinlines are you talking about?
5) when will you answer question 4 so I can actually help you by telling you which are better quality.
6) when will you try the guitars out?
7) what amp do you have
8) do you have any other questions
9) what are your other guitar(s)
10) ... We can only tell you which are better quality, but only you can decide which one feels and sounds better.

strats arent really made for punk


Strats are good for most genres... but a fat strat might be better suited for punk
Hai UG!

My friend is in a metal/hardcore band and he plays a strat, and so does the rythm guitar.

I wouldn't say that a Thinline was an obvious choice for punk either though. Get a Strat and whack a Humbucker in the bridge and you're sorted.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Boss Metalzone
Peavey Bandit

No. He didn't. It has Noiseless pick-ups, but that is the only mod that the old owner made to it. His dad painted it red over the worn finish. Metal!!!

sorry mate but i use a fat strat regularly and well single coils have more bass in it then the bridge humbucker but then again this was an older model

there are many different types of strats, so be more specific. Anyways, we cant tell you which one to get you have to decide depending on the feel and sound. Also, strats are more for like blues and clear music. Not distorted punk music.

(Epiphone SG's are good for like punk music)

single coils are a tad thin for metal, there not too trebly

listen to dimebag, he was a trebly mofo

My god, I had the best expierience in a local music store recently. I had an EJ Strat, going into a Vox V847 wah, running through a Marshall JCM800 Half Stack. All this in a sound proof room in which I could crank the amp.

Needless to say I almost creamed myself.

Lol, when I wanted to try the EJ I made an ass of myself. Here's how it went...

"Hey man, can I uh.. try the Eric Johnson guitar out and uh... not plugged in or anything... and er... um... really quick too!"

Really hard to form a sentence with a $2000 guitar in your hands.
