This guitar can do anything
For the longest time I couldn't decide whether I should get the Strat or the SG. My favorite type of music is the blending of the electronic and rock world, which made me lean more towards the SG because of the humbuckers. I always associated the Strat with blues(which I'm not a huge fan of), but I kept hearing that it can do anything you want it to. After playing the Strat I learned just how true that was. If I dialed the tone and EQ right I can get a heavy, humbucking sound with huge ***** and still have that amazing strat tone. Also there was practically no 60 cycle hum in any of the pickup positions which was great. When I saw my favorite band in the world, Linkin Park, using a Strat in some of their heaviest experimental/electronic tracks, I learned just how much the guitar could do. For some reason the Strat sounds amazing in an experimental electronic sound scape. Linkin Park, especially from Minutes to Midnight to present, are my biggest inspiration because nobody else is doing what they do. Their guitar lines may be simple, but they're probably the most creative musicians I've never had the pleasure of meeting (yet). Hopefully I can work in the studio and learn from the band personally one day. My goal is to create music just as great, new, and exciting as them, and this wonderful combo of wood and strings is my first step to that goal. I'm only 18 right now and I've a lot to learn and a lot of studio gear to get before I can really get out there, but this beauty will stick with through my whole life. If I ever give any more reviews forgive me for extensively talking about Linkin Park because I know I will in every single one. If you read all of this, congratulations; you have won my respect and trust, but most of all my love.
