No, I saw them on that documentary, Jurassic Park. They walked around and ate electric fences and people.
I recently bought the HSS and i love it but the 60th anniversary one is also nice and i think it has slightly better pickups but i guess it comes down to what type of music you play and if you want/need the humbucker or the classic 3 single coils.For myself i play mainly blues/classic rock but i also like to metal out once and awhile (even though im old now lol) so i went with the HSS.
Well, i'd get that one in brown sunburst with maple fretboard.
But just because i'm up for that certain S-S-S thing.
The one with H-S-S is a little more versatile because of the humbucker. So if you want to have a really versatile one, get the Fat Strat.
