One of the things that makes me lean towards vintage is neither sound nor feel but a small aesthetic detail......the skunk stripe!
Maple should have it, rosewood shouldn’t, simple.
I am happy with any strat, so long as it is setup properly. No buzz...low action...light gauge strings. Everything else doesn't bother me too much.
Very true. All those guys are monsters. Mike was just the first one who came to mind since I'd been listening to him earlier.
My choice is whatever is in my sig list below.
Oh yeah. I can play them fine. I just prefer modern necks. When playing SRV or shred metal, the outcome is the same on a vintage radius. It often frets out. This remains a problem on even 9.5 radii, albeit, not as bad.
I actually really enjoy the vintage radii when I am working with more chord oriented music. As far as a stagger goes, I like vintage stagger at times, other times I like flat and yet others I like modern. It is a "what tool do I need for the job?" type deal. could I afford it, I would have a 9.5-12" compound radius on my 95 AmStd
I prefer everything vintage. The only modern feature I prefer is either 9.5" or even compound radius fretboard.
I want a vintage feel. 7.25 radius on my Strats and Teles. The sound, not quite vintage. Somewhat hotter. I don’t play surf, country twang, or pristine cleans very often.
I prefer a modern feel and a vintage vibe.
I, personally, both look and sound vintage...
vintage sound. I like the feel of many different configurations, but I tend to gravitate to vintage type pickups and sound.
The feel of the neck and body /tremolo bridge + color. I was lucky enough to be offered a partscaster with a 1990 EC signature neck in 1995 and a 1977 Schecter ash body. Brass vintage style tremolo bridge.
Then it was tailored to my ears and preferred look with CS69 pickups. Somehow I found a combination that I really dig as in 2018 it's still the same.
So it is basically '50s style with newer pickups.
Somehow a partscaster helped me to get the Stratocaster I needed.
