a sunburst man!
Here's a pic of the hardtail.
And here’s the LPB
i always rode a softtail because of a lower back injury......oh wait.....youre talkin guitars
they both look awesome. Can't go wrong with either! Have pics of the green?
and here's the sherwood green.
just posted, they're all 1960 journeyman relics
they all are great.. green is my favorite. Very unique. All are nicer than any guitars I'll ever own. I wouldn't say no to any of them, TBH. I thought you were talking about a Squier Classic Vibe at first, or something. These are the real deal.
Something to possibly consider is that the market for hardtails. They are a niche market, so their value could be possibly lower in resale.
True, definitely not as easy to sell perhaps. Hoping to keep this one for a while though. I’ll post pics when I decide and it arrives! Nicer than I’ve ever had either...
how much are they? I've never been remotely in the market for a guitar that nice, so I've got no clue on the value.
I don't even own a strat right now, hardtail or otherwise. I think if I was gonna get another Strat, I would want one with a trem, because I have Teles and LP's, so I have the hardtail thing covered.
Right now, I only have one guitar with a wiggle stick, and it's not a Strat.
As for the tone, I think that depends on the individual guitar in its entirety, rather than the bridge type. I have 3 Strats with a whamulator bridge, but my next partscaster will be a hardtail. The hardtail bridge and stringthrough into ferrules gets it one step closer to behaving like a Tele. My '76 Strat hardtail was the worst guitar I've ever owned and I need to transcend that with one that's better.
I personally love the trem on a strat so hardtails are pointless to me, but it's your guitar.
Just like that woman at last call....
You might enjoy it...
It could be you....
Life is short...

My EC and Elite are both decked and blocked. My 78 was a hardtail to begin with.
The whammy was a novelty on my Elite so I tried it for a year, then blocked it.
It's very much a personal choice. Either way makes some fine music.
Because hard tails can be hard to find sometimes, I've had mine blocked. My number 1 is a '98 American Standard. I just had it blocked, and I can't tell any difference in the tone. Plus, if you have your tech do it right, you can always unblock it and stick your whammy bar back on.
Use care when considering "I heard...." posts, and use your own ears. It doesn't cost that much if you have it blocked, and won't hurt your guitar if you have it unblocked.
No idea of the technicalities but I’ve never used the whammy bar or owned a hard tail. Just blocked the terms. Always felt the trem is an inherent part of a Strat and, you never know, one day I might use it!
LPB with trem.....................no other sensible option.
