    I agree. All I've ever played were Strat styles. They're just the most beautiful guitars in the world to me.

    Tried out a couple of Teles once, adored them. Tried out LPs and SGs, they were good. But the Stratocaster will always be my "home".

    Got my first Strat at 11. It was a MIK Squier Standard that my Dad bought me for my birthday. When I graduated from high school I bought my 3TSB American Deluxe with graduation money, which is pretty much the love of my life to this day.

    I got my MIM strat when I was 17, in 1993. Loved it then. Still love it now!

    You`re not the only


    I think CV finishes are nicest for me too. But neck finish is not an big issue for me, i like My Gibson SG Special WB stained, almost half-raw neck feel too.
    No prob with V-necks either.;)

    Man, I wish I could go back to the age of "under 21" again...feels so wrong posting in this thread. Anyway, got my first strat at the age of 13 or so, and I've had a ton of different guitars (including a BC Rich Warlock :rolleyes: but it was given to me for free by a lady I didn't even know) but the strat has always been my favorite! Got 14 guitars at the moment, half of them are strats. The other half is a mixture for a little variety--bass, acoustics, 6/12 doubleneck, couple of Epiphones. The strats get the most play time though.

    Well, I don't do much blues or classic rock, but the strat is my number 1 guitar. My current strats:

    Black Squier Lefty Standard body with an affinity neck on it.

    Heavily modded yellow double fat Squier Bullet Strat.

    Pink Squier Bullet Strat.

    an american standard daphne blue?!?

    i'd freakin love one of those. just for the color. haha.

    i could get a CP50's but i just really don't like the way those guitars are set up and built - small frets, 7.25 radius..

    I got my first Strat-a used 1974 Fender Sunburst MIA that had been set up as a lefty-when I was 20-traded a Gibson SG with neck issues. No relicing-it's a 36 year old Strat that has been well played and enjoyed.

    I just laid down some tracks with it in my home studio-still sounds sweet as when I first played her!!
