It's like when everything became alternative and what was mainstream had become alternative. It's enough to make your head spin.
I agree with your statement for the most part but the “prince” of indie rock plays a strat.
You have to wait until it becomes completely, intolerably, offensively uncool and then it will be cool again.
Boeing 747 / P-51 Mustang (pick your airplane)
Rolex/Cartier/Patek (pick your Timepiece)
You're right, but it was fun to think of other manmade objects that I find beautiful from every angle.
P-51 Mustang, absolutely.
I just don’t care if something is cool or not. I am leaning toward Mustangs the last few years because they are way easier for me to play. I figure any guitar that helps you play better is the coolest guitar on the market.
I just bought a solid black Strat copy as my first guitar after thinking I wanted a LP-style guitar for the previous 6 months. Very glad I did, now.
And when I see/hear Fender Mustang, I automatically picture Kurt Cobain so that may be part of why so many use it now. That alone makes it cool to millions of people, I'm sure.
One of the reasons I gravitate towards my strat is because they're not as "cool" as telecasters and offsets. That and they're just amazing guitars that sound and feel right.
A Stratocaster generates tones only a Stratocaster can.
If you play guitar you have to play a strat at least once in your life!
Exactly. An L.P. can do something a Strat can't, a Strat can do many things a L.P. can't.
And a Tele can do do things an LP or a Strat can't. This one can even do acoustic:
You couldn’t give them away in the 80s unless they had a humbucker and a Floyd. They came back. They will again.
I raise your p-51 with the Spitfire most beautiful plane ever made .
IMO the Strats are way better looking than the Teles...more electric mojo/vibe to me...that being said, I absolutely LOVE my Tele AO and have a CS ordered... Two very different guitars, some days I get up and feel the Strat sound is speaking to me, other days the Tele...sometimes throughout the day I change and fall in love with both over and over again...If I had to make a decision on keeping only one I honestly don't know which I would chose.
I was thinking that exact thing. I like Corsairs too. I always thought they were the hotrod of prop driven aircraft.
