    21 fret Strats always sound the best.

    Nice. There's something appealing about a good ol' Strat.

    How are you finding having no humbuckers and how does it compare to the unsellable black Strat?

    This is actually my first, I'm pretty sure. But the last 4 were HSS and I pretty much lived on the bridge bucker 95% of the time . I haven't noticed the lack of 22 yet, but I also haven't spent a ton of time on that side of the fretboard. Similar to when I got the telecaster, I've been pretending I'm any good at 12 bar blues in A .

    I don't know if the previous owner did that or it came from factory, but it sounds pretty even through the positions. I may ask the tech to leave them as is, as it sounds pretty good.

    I really dig the bridge tone on this one. It's not ice-picky, it just sounds like a bridge pickup. The neck on this versus the player series is definitely thinner, though I've accommodated. It does re-confirm that I love thick necks on Fender style guitars though . Fortunately the Nocaster spec neck on the tele and "thick C" of the jazzmaster sort that out for me. I also experimented with positions 2 and 4, which normally I'd avoid. No specific use for them yet, but that Hendrix preset from Fractal now has my attention. I did whip up an AC-20/JTM-45 thing based on it, but I may just copy the JH preset and add the effects.

    I think once I get the 10's on it, I'm going to love it even more.

    Though I will say, I wasn't expecting the sticky feeling of the nitro neck after the matte finish of everything else .

    A good strat is a good thing. Love the matching 'stock, too.
