My EJ strat I call "Bet(t)y" because that is the name written in the cavity (presumably by a nice lady named Elisabeta). EJ called his '54 "Virginia" for the same reason.
My Royals World Series Champs Strat I call "Bluebell" because it is blue and rings like a bell.
How does the EJ feel and sound? It's my next Strat I would like to include in my collection but I never had the chance to play one yet...
They don't really have names, but the kids use the same terms repeatedly to refer you guitars, so until a more final name comes up, here's the daughter's, and the old.
I think of calling the daughter's "stratoCATster" or "kitty", and the older "Daphné" even if it's more like "ocean breese"
Maybe "blue turtle"
I have one Stratocaster, but it has no name, usually just referred to as The Strat.
I have plenty of guitars, but in terms of strats....
I have one that I own - this 60th anniversary 1954 reissue:
And I have one that owns me:
The red one is the kind of guitar dreams are made of!
Can you tell me about it? Thanks!
EJ Strats are wonderful if you like deep '50's contour body, low output vintage style pickups, and deep soft V/C neck with 12" radius and vintage size
frets. Mine has Callaham bridge, Fralin pups and custom neck with 6105 frets, so pretty much ideal.
- my old one - '95 Am Std
- the HSH - HSH Am Std Deluxe
- the HSS - HSS Fender Select
- the ebony one - 2015 limited edi. Am Std with ebony fingerboard
- the new one - 2016 Am Std
'96 - "Bea"
'98 - "Queenie"
'02 - "Nuke"
Sure...it's my late 63 - body refinished but otherwise stock. Great to play, but mainly I take it from room to room with me and lean it against things
Omg it's amazing Bazz! Really my dream guitar! My absolute favorite finish colour hands down!
I would be taking it with me too! Is the pg mint green? I can't tell.
Edit-PS- That's the year I was born.
Yes mint green. A lot more obvious in this photo when the body was white (a poor spray can job that was replaced with a pro red refinish). Amazing how a white body makes the mint so apparent!
I'd take that one nameless strat any day of the week s5uart, Elites were awesome, if I ever catch one on this side of the pond with a rosewood board I can afford we'll be starting an Elite club (that preamp has the secret mojo)
You sure can't tell from that picture that it was a bad paint job. That mint looks delicious!
I can only imagine what that guitar must be like. Right on Bazz!
All day I have three strats. A black Alvarez Classic II that I don't play because it sucks, a sunburst mij '85 Fender Contemporary B series "Heidi", and an Olympic White mij '87 Fender FR G series "Angel".
Some people don't like them at all (mostly those who haven't played one I suspect)
Awesome tone...here's a clip (not me playing unfortunately!) Obviously a Strat but so Rock and Roll!!!!
case in point! these clips truly show how awesome these things can sound, I mean even through a Line 6 the thing was banging, I think it was just a classic case of strat guys being a bit too traditional to accept a hot rod like this, it definitely ain't for playing Buddy Holly and Hank Marvin tunes (which it could) this is more like it
I'll just leave this here....
