2 post, like a tune-o-matic?

For a 25.5 scale length (most strats):

25.562" (±0.030") from nut to center of treble-side post. Mount bass-side post 1/16"-1/8" further from the nut.

Stewmac fret calc.

I'm pretty sure he means a 2 point trem, like on an american strat

Are the cubes modeling amps?

I think so
Quote by Blckspawn
SO i should get the Roland Cube 20x, but then what kinda of effects should i get?

In my opinion I think that most modling amps with effect pedals sound lame...

Get a Vypyr with the switching pedal.

yeah I checked around on craigslist but I'm not quite sure what is and isn't a good deal...
So I have been saving up money for a while and I now want to buy a new guitar.
After going to guitar center to try out some guitars I found out that I prefer the looks and overall playability of a strat

I play blues/rock like Cream, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, SRV, etc...
My amp is a fender hot rod deluxe
