    Well, here is mine. It is my most played Strat, at least for now. It has beautiful, dark rosewood that almost looks like ebony. The stock pickups sound great. And even though the Floyd is a Special, it works just fine. This guitar came with no issues and it was set up perfectly. The intonation is spot on. I did have to adjust the claw when I changed the strings to a different brand, but that was all. The neck is a thin C shape, 24 frets, and fit and finish is excellent D0A951AA-1FC5-411D-A25D-67143FC0469C.jpeg DA84239A-4841-4B9D-B7EC-0B652794A000.jpeg

    Either of these, though I'll happily play metal on any of my other guitars!

    It’s just fine. The Fender in my pic weighs about 7lbs. Just a little less than 7. It is really resonant.

    Not a Strat, but this Tele is my go to metal machine. Fender Blacktop Tele with Gibson 498T and 490R pickups.

    Original run and rare as rocking horse poop, 1988/89 HH configuration in a crackle/marble effect finish. Only ever seen a picture of 1 other on Google.

    Didn't get on with the Khaler trem (I was scared of it) so sold it in no time flat.

    Was tempted to buy the blue reissue model currently on sale but I went with the Dave Murray and I'm happy! The HM looks a hell of a lot prettier but the Dave Murray is spec'd out perfectly for me.

    EVH is pretty much a strat with different hardware.
