You might have seen my recent post about selling an SG...
And if I were to sell it i think that i would get a fender 60's stratocaster and i had a few questions...

Does anyone have this guitar, and if so is it good?

Would it suit music like the red hot chili peppers, pink floyd, led zeppelin, and the general genres Classic rock, Psychadelic rock, alternative/indie, and funk rock/metal?

Would the fender 70's Stratocaster be a better choice?


if you could answer any of these questions i'd appreciate it.

Thing is that half way through the 60s was when Fender got bought up by CBS, and it's generally agreed that there was a serious decline in quality. So pre-65 they're classics, post-65 they're theoretically not as good. However, Hendrix used CBS Strats (sometimes, he had a lot), so maybe it's all bullsh*t. Meh.

To the guy who mentioned Clapton and his Strats; although Clapton started using Strats in the 70s he only used 'classic' (ie, pre-CBS) Strats at that time, so 70's Strats don't represent his tone.

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.

It really would suit that stuff well, play one before you think about buying and see for yourself.

I've played quite a few of them, gorgeous guitars, sound really nice, but the bridge pickups sounded too thin and trebly to me compared to my MIM Strat.
