ok so I am selling all my junk so I can buy ONE guitar and ONE amplifier.

Now I know I will buy an stratocaster, but I don'T know if I should buy the CLapton signature, the John Mayer or the SRV?

is there a big sound difference? I play mostly blues, and old school rock (clapton, SRV, Tj Mahal, JM, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, even some U2)


As for the amp, I guess a twin reverb or a deluxe?

dont get a signature guitar, find your own custom look

Get a custom, if you can only get one guitar may as well get one that's exactly right; see if you can find a local luthier to make one to your exact specs.

The Eric Johnson strat is the best on the market. If you aren't a fan of him, ignore the name. It's just a REALLY good instrument.

yeah but can I can something descent for 2000$? I mean in my head, custom sound expensive. I've always been a strat guy. I just thought a signature guitar was a garanty of quality. I don't really care about the name, just about the sound

Says the guy who owns a Les Paul. That's rich.

Anyway, go play all of them in a store and see which you like best.

Signature guarantees nothing but someone who's willing to sell their name.

Pick one of those and as long as you try it and like it you can't really go wrong, or at least, you shouldn't be able to for that kind of cash.

YES! Someone with good taste, I would go for the American Vintage '57 reissue maple strat, it's my dream guitar. Twin would be better. But if you want natural tube overdrive, go for the deluxe.

If you're looking for versatility in that price range and want a Strat then I don't think you can go wrong with an American Standard Fat Strat or American Deluxe Fat Strat. I don't think you're really going to get as much of the classic rock overdriven/distorted range you might want unless you've got a humbucker in the bridge.
