Best guitar out there
After 4 years of playing a $400, Swedish copy of a les paul, I wanted to upgrade to a real instrument. I was going to buy a gibson, but strats changed my mind. The sss model sounds good, but I knew I would miss that extra power, and the fat 50s sound harsh in the bridge position. I picked my hss guitar off the rack, played one note, and knew this was it.
I got it in olympic white, and it looks stunning. All of the classic strat sounds are in this guitar, even the quack in position 2. I now have two lead tons available, the neck single coil and bridge humbucker., as well as blues on the middle pickup. This is one the guitar that can do anything.
The only let down is that this guitar WONT stay in tune when using the trem, even the smallest vibrato! But I'm not into tremolos, and blocked it off, to hardtail it, so it doesn't bother me.
The guitar came with a $150 case, and loads of case candy, I will never sell this guitar, and for all you gibson lovers, buy this, you won't regret it. :)
