    hinguys, i bought a strat yesterday, tinkered it to my personal preferences and i just can not believe how good that guitar is. i have two other strats, that can not come close to that rich, warm but still clear and rocking tone.
    maybe the fat 50 pups do the trick with that block. i play pretty fat strings too.
    took me almost two hours, to get the setup right, but that is a fabulous guitar.

    Congrats Eddie!

    Strats take a little wrestling to get them the way you want them, but once they once you get them tweaked juuuuusssst right....they are so much fun.

    Enjoy! And post a pic!

    I own quite a few guitars and the problem I have is it's hard to play any other guitar because I've been playing Strat's for so long. When I plug something else in it either does not feel right or sound right.
