Now, this won't be the first video of this type you've seen before, and we know that. Today's video isn't a comparison, but more a celebration of everything the original 'Strat' design means to different players, and what it's gone on to become under the influence of several of the world's greatest guitar designers.
Everyone knows that Fender likes to honour their heritage by utilising its Custom Shop to create some of the greatest re-interpretations and replications of its classic designs, providing the customer with a plethora of options, to sculpt the design & tweak the spec to the player's requests. However, they're not the only ones to listen to what the players want out of their instruments, and the boutique guitar market is bustling with top talent, eager to impart their own techniques & visions on the plentifully versatile S-style platform.
So, today we pick four of our favourites, show off their strengths, and let YOU judge which works best for your needs. Which satisfies the ultimate 'Strat' sound in your head or, like us, can you simply not choose just one?
