Is it the star that's the step too far? Or the Gibson style bridge and pickups?
The 1970s was a funny old time...
I might be alone in this, but I say middle pickup.
If you take out the middle single coil pickup it's not a strat anymore.
All the HSH guitars get called "superstrats". The HH not so much.
According to Fender at least.. a guitar is mostly dictated by its body shape. They've basically made a Strat with a Tele body, and called it ____ Tele.
Interesting. Perhaps Bjorn's guitar is more Jazzmaster than Strat.
IMO, it's not a Strat if it hasn't got something close to a P-Bass body shape. A Strat neck on a Tele is a Tele, a Strat neck on a Jazzmaster is a Jazzmaster. Fender has made HH Strats, (the Blacktop model comes to mind) so it's not the middle pickup.
The word for that weird star-shaped guitar with two humbuckers, a Strat neck, and a Tune-O-Matic is "abomination." It can't be comfortable to play.
I was about to say 1966 but you beat me to it...
I like pointy but that one has about 12 too many points for my taste.
I think this is still a strat though there those that will avert their eyes with distain.
loose terms for sure. How about Les Paul?
You would think that it had to have a sinclecut body, 2 humbuckers, set neck and a carved maple cap?
Maybe, but the DC Les Paul has only 1 out of these 4 fatures
Is it bad that I kinda want it?
Why doesn't that surprise me?
Because you’ve known me for a while and know I have no taste?
I never got the whole “Modern Art” thing...
The introduction of the veneer board was the first step towards The Dark Side, me thinks.
A strat might no longer be a strat if...
1. If it doesn't fit a strat case
If it isn't SSS or have a working trem.
Its not a strat if it doesnt have a strat shape! It doesnt matter what neck is on it. Anything could be a Fender if Fender produced it.
Original recipe should be considered.
