Cool
Do u have any idea about how those guitar fetish pups sound. I am plannin to order those bcuz no guitar shop over here stock pickups and guitarfetish is the only site which ships here.
Also those are the only pups in budget rt now


If you mean GFS pickups; yes, they're awesome. Definitely a bargain.

Gotta love strats!!

I own two strats, one is a Squier, but its a pretty nice beast, 250k pots and a Seymour Duncan in the bridge position, coil tapped. Got Schaller machine heads and straplocks on it...definitly my favorite guitar.

Also got a Maple Strat which I built myself, with TexMex pickups and grover tuners. Check out the pic below.

Anyone try the Jeff Beck sig strat?? Its ****in gorgeous!
My mate has a deluxe strat, its pretty noisy though....anyone got info on that?
Same mate also has an 88 MIA Fiesta Red.....he didnt know it was customshop until I took the pickguard off to rewire the pickups, and I noticed the customshop sticker. W00t!!

Jimmy Page ("that guy from led zeppelin) didnt play a strat. he played a lespaul, tele, and eds1275

and what about Rory Gallagher? He's like the ultimate strat player. looks like he never put his down

I love Strats, even the ones with a Humbucker ... another MIJ:

Mmmmmmmmm.... Strats. I love em. They are comfortable, have all the features you need, and have an awesome tone. I love single coils, and the glassy tone you can get from them. The cleans of my Strat played through my Sound City are amazing.

Anyway, here is my Strat. It's a 1985 MIJ '72 Reissue. All the 70s appointments; CBS headstock, bullet truss, three bolt neck plate, Ash body. Sounds great. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan Hot Stack, which I'm gonna replace for a normal single coil I think.





Still need to take some better pics. If it's nice tomorrow I'll go outside and take some. Might do some recordings through the old SC if I can be bothered too.

EDIT: Why does everyone crave noiseless'? They lack soul! They don't sound as good as normal Strat pups, which I don't find that noisy anyway TBH.

I also have a Stratocaster. Actually dunno what type or what, cause im new in guitars.
Its Black w/brown, and it has 'Mad Axe' on the head.
I like this guitar pretty much, it has a nice sound and it also looks nice.

I want to buy an American Strat... one of the new ones

Are they of good quality and craftmanship?
86% of the people who frequent the "Electric Guitar" forum would say that they have played guitar for under 5 years.

I've got a MIM sunburst Strat, bout 3 or 4 years old.

I love it, it's perfect, wouldn't change it at all, and it's all stock too.

The Burgundy Mist Metallic color was discontinued, so I got it for a lower price. The shop had 3 of them at the time they were getting rid of.

The Mojo "V" pickups I have aren't quite like the ones you hear on his site. They're slightly overwound (custom for me), so a bit fatter, although the bridge has a sharp tone to it. Very nice pickups. They're what Lace Sensor Golds and Fender Vintage pickups want to be when they grow up.

My strat is a bolt on. The neck is bird's eye maple.

It's an awesome guitar, great for funk and blues. I always play it straight thru the amp on clean with no effects. Great clean tone.
