The Fender Stratocaster guitar has to be my favorite instrument of all time. I generally lean towards humbuckers installed in my Fender Stratocaster guitars but no matter what it is, it's the ideal weight and balance of this guitar is just perfect for my needs. I love the look of this guitar to you because it has a great modern look with the vintage tone and feel. There is not a lot that this guitar cannot do. It's so versatile and extremely well balanced which makes it perfect for that person that needs one guitar to do everything. If I only had a choice to pick between a Gibson Les Paul guitar and a Fender Stratocaster guitar which in my mind are the two most versatile and highly used instruments, then I would definitely pick the Fender Stratocaster guitar. I would install a hum bucker in the bridge position and probably keep the single coil in the middle and in the neck but there's something about the way this body shape against the certain frequencies that I'd like to hear in my guitar tones.

Whether you use this guitar with a clean amplifier all away to a Bogner Ubershalll type gain mega loaded distortion tone, this guitar is really good to give you a great feeling for no matter what you're playing. These guitars are very versatile too so if you take off the pick guard your can easily install a humbucker or another style pick up for your needs. These are very versatile guitars and depending on what you like to hear and feel you can add or modify these instruments quite easily. I generally like to play a Fender Stratocaster with a humbucker installed in the bridge position but I also like the ability to play single coils as well. I am a Stratocaster guy so I have multiple Stratocaster guitars for those times where I like to use a different pick up or variety of tones.


If you find these guitars pretty much anywhere you find musical instruments online or in most guitar retailers around the world. These are great guitars and I highly recommend any guitarist out there. These are great for gigging or recording and pretty much anything in between. If you're a rock garage or basement guitar player this is a great instrument for you as well. I recommend these guitars to every guitarists on the planet.
