Buong pickguard ba yung meron nung foil? Or dun lang sa may pots?
For full effect, dapat yung buong cavity, plus the whole pickguard. :-)

sana lahat ng thread sa philmusic tungkol sa strat!  :-D
is there really anything else worth talking about?  :lol:

i love everything about them! the vibe, the tone, and even the 60 cycle hum!

i even love the fact that some people view their 5 way switch as
1-bridge, 2-bridge & middle, 3-middle, 4-neck & middle, 5-neck
...and that some people view it the other way.

i love the bubbly neck pickup tone, quacky in-betweens, the neither-here-nor-there middle pickup tone, & even the sometimes icepicky bridge single coil tone!

i love how you can disassemble the guitar so you can put it in your handcarry when those airline people insist you check it in! :evil:

i love how you can change the pickup configuration just by simply changing the pickguard assembly! (depende sa routing, of course!)

i love how the countours are so comfy next to your body. parang second skin!

i love the strat's honesty. it let's you know whether you're playing well or not, just like a true friend should!

to borrow from ninoy... you can take a guitarist away from his strat, but you can never take the strat away from the guitarist!  :-)

You said it right.. one of the reasons why I love the vintage-style relic sunburst.. (though I only got a MIM standard which is a bit inferior when it comes to quality..) hinahayaan kong kusang matigbak yung paint ng strat ko.. the more it shows the wood.. the more it adds its sentimental value heheh

I have the SCN pickups ..stock pickups sa AmDeluxe ko. It sounds decent. But I know that it can sound more strat sounding with the right pickup. I'm still really thinking after my callaham upgrades what pickups I'm going to choose.

I agree. They're great pickups. The Suhr single coils (V60LP, V54 and Fletcher Landau) are awesome too. Lollars are a bit too bright for me.

I tried a tele with jumbo frets.. and when compared to the smaller frets on my strat, mas gusto ko yung jumbo frets. :-)

I'm not so sure. Do you really need that much gain? If not, a dirt pedal with less gain might help you out. Gumamit na ko dati ng MT2 with a strat dati.. pakiramdam ko out of control yung guitar. :lol:
