Sorry about all these topics asking for advice, I'm not good with decisions. ><

Anyway, I'm looking at a used 2008 American Standard strat on the local craigslist(originally sunburst, refinished in black nitrocellulose, series/parallel switch added on, includes the case, strap, whammy bar, all the goodies you expect a mid-high end strat to include, $600). I love the strat, and I've been set on a strat for a while, but another one of my favourite guitars popped up for cheaper.

An Epiphone Casino(Cherry Red, Bigsby Vibrato installed, which I intended to do with any non-tremolo guitar I would buy, includes original trapeze tailpiece as well. Also includes a hardshell case. $400).

I love the P-90 pickups, as well as the ability to play acoustically, but I prefer the kind of feedback you can get from a strat a la Hendrix rather then the acoustic vibration feedback a hollowbody or acoustic gets. At the same time the Casino is cheaper, and the price of everything on it new(including the guitar itself,) comes to about $800. Plus I can actually afford the Casino right now in contrast to the strat, and since, after the upgrades and add-ins the Casino would be twice the price new, I'm worried someone will snatch it up and I'm stuck if I decide I want it instead of the strat. The only thing is I play the occasional metal song, and I've heard hollowbodies are awful for metal and hard rock(albeit Malcolm Young uses a White Falcon, so I assume their at least usable).

If you need an idea of what I play, look at the band list for my non-forum UG profile.

Thanks for any help you guys can provide.

Go for the strat you will only regret it if youve had your mind set on it. Both are good guitars though :x

Depends on your style matey, if you play blues go for the Epi (the feedback works well for that style) and for the rest take the Strat
