You almost never see a Strat in any of the churches I've been to out here. I play mine occasionally, but I've got other guitars that sound better for rhythm, and since 99% of contemporary worship guitar is rhythm, they get the nod most of the time. Strats are great lead instruments, and mediocre rhythm instruments, IMO. Other than Brewster, there aren't many lead players in modern Christian Music, which is a real shame. And, I'm not saying it's a shame that Brewster plays real leads rather than the ubiquitous octave progressions many worship players fall back on and call leads. When we do sets that call for actual leads, I bring the Strat.
