Forgive my appaling ignorance;it is not always easy to keep up with all the strat variants avilable these day.
What is the spec of the Cray model and how does it differ from a standard stratocaster?
Oh a point about pick-ups. Someone seemed surprised the pups were as good as some of the after market pups availalbe for silly money.
A pup is a bobbin, pole pieces and a coil of copper wire. Too often, musicians fall for magazine ad rhetoric. Listen to some of the old 50's and 60's classic music, recorded before the pup manufacturers came into being. These were reocrded on stock guitars with stock pick-ups. I don't really need to say anymore.
I have a 65 strat and thank God I had the brains never to replace the pups with 'the next big thing'. Nothing can come close to that sound, except another 60's strat. Age does make subtle tonal differences to wood and magnets and windings, NOT the latest Billy Whizzbang super-dooper, humbucking, train-stopping, lip-smacking, dog-tracking, expensive-ad-costing effort from some indie pup manufacturer. Seymour D, Di Marzio et al would LOVE to be able to create a pup that was instantly 40 years old. They can't. New Fender pups are as good as anyones. Trust your ears, not shiny ad mags!
