It's just the most comfortable guitar in the world... to me.
My first guitar was a '57 Esquire , I gigged with it for 5 or 6 years , then I stumbled upon a '63 Strat and I played it and other Strats for many years to come . The Stratocaster is just so comfortable , was my performing guitar , but the Esquire killed it in the studio . You gotta have both a Tele and a Strat !!
Pretty much all of these things. The modularity of just swapping pickguards in a few minutes and having whole new sounds is awesome. Also, for that Wilkinson bridge on there, did you replace the Fender posts with the ones included with the Wilkinson or did the bridge mate up with the Fender ones just fine?
A clean neck pickup on a Strat is one of my favorite electric guitar sounds.
I sometimes think about building a "reverse shredder" one-pickup guitar - a Strat body with just a neck single coil and a volume pot.
Now I want another Strat. Thanks a lot, everyone.

I’m not sure yet... maybe it’s the light weight (it’s a thinner-than-it-should-be Squier). Maybe it’s the comfy ergonomic body shape. Maybe it’s the $100 CDN price tag. Maybe it’s the top-loading hard tail. All I know is that I have played other people’s strats on many occasions, and never felt the urge to have my own. I bought this on an odd whim, and I’m kind of enjoying it. Mods to come, maybe I’ll enjoy it more. To be honest, my money is on the fact that it’s a hard tail (I prefer Bigsby vibrato to strat-style), or the fact that with one pickup, it doesn’t have that forest of controls pestering me to fiddle about with them.
they mated fine with the originals.
If fo no other reason than I can wrap a pinky around the volume knob. It’s also comfy, and pretty and sound great. It’s a sports car to a teles tractor or Jeep. I want one FOR the tremolo (only one ever made that sounds good) and that’s why next build will be this:
I love it because it is brilliant. It sounds great (all 5 positions are distinctly different and awesome) and it's beautiful to look at at. End of story. Whatever floats your boat is of no concern to me. My girlfriend beats yours (to me) and I just don't care what you think. I hope yours is all you could ever ask for. I know mine is.
I have 7 strats, some with different pickup configs. The one I like the best is my very heavy '72. I had to put new pickups in it (57/62's) and now it sounds like a brand new Fullerton Strat.
I play all but 1 upside down (lefty) and that upside down neck pickup is one sound I can't live without. I even put a right handed pickup in the neck of the lefty strat. That Tele in the avatar is now gone, strange but I don't miss it.
No production electric guitar, in my opinion, is more comfortable to play than the Stratocaster. It melds with the player.
I mocked this up in Kisekae Guitar Builder last night.
It looked stupid.
For those that don’t like the volume knob position it’s easy to convert to master volume and master tone and eliminate one pot.
I played 1 of my 2 remaining Strats yesterday after a long period only playing
my Teles and I loved it, the sound, the feel and the weight, much lighter
than all my other guitars.
My Strat really complements my Tele. They go great together.
Dude, 'cause it's a Strat.
It sounds like your tele likes compliments
