    Also...what's with the Squire Strat with two singlecoils in a "special configuration" to mimic a humbucker?
    That's been done before.

    I guess I don't see the point. How does that even sound? "Here's my brigde pickup...and here's my other bridge pickup!" Is it supposed to be humbucker-esque, or some unique sound combo of two (mostly) bridge single coils?

    I think you can wire them so that they're essentially humbuckers - although I don't know what the benefit would be compared to just putting a humbucker there where the coils are designed to work well together. I guess you might get better single-coil sounds than from a split humbucker? Can't think of another reason.

    Fender now also makes EVH guitars which do basically the same thing as these Squiers and Charvels, the 5150 models:





    Seems to me like there's a risk of bran cannibalization here, when they're making essentially the same guitar (just with slightly different headstocks) across several brands.

    I can agree with that, I also really like that one.
    And I never liked teles to begin with.

    The matching headstock made it complete !

    I've never liked normal teles, but "superteles" are somehow really cool - like the original 1980's ESP Eclipses, Jackson Telly's etc. Ibanez's TurboT is fugly though.
