the pre-cbs years (when Leo made them by hand) are praised as the holy grail of strats. However, (espcially for the price) I think the replicas and reissues sound as good if not better in most cases.
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!

The CBS are THE best strats around, they feel so much better than those of today.
If you ever get the chance, play one.

Id say either a 62 or, if u like the headstock, a 70's strat. Im not sure about the year for the seventies one tho. Alot of big Strat players have nice 70s Strats, like John Frusciante.

wow, so many noobs in this thread.

Leo Fender handmade each strat before CBS?

The whole point of Fender guitars is that they're machine made.

I remember reading somewhere the Frusicante only plays strats that are older than himself, I could be wrong, but someone that is heacy Froosh fan would sort it out...
Wheres Kensai when he's needed.

57.THE best year of strats. soft-V neck profile, introduced alder bodies, 6-point tremolo, and teh sex pickups.

1957. the year of strats. this year is the 50th right?

'62 IMO. '54 is the next best of course - the first ever year. Mark Knopfler's '54 Strat is ridiculously hot. But so is Rory's '61 Strat. All lovely
