We have different definitions of good design. If one wants a combat tough guitar, get a Fender. In 1972 I was on my way to a gig with my Strat tied to the sissy bar of my BSA 650. Just before the Ashby off-ramp, the Strat blew off and into the #4 lane of I80 West. I stopped, braved the cars to pick it up. The case was roached, but the two-tone 67 Strat was fine.
