    i'm glad i got divorced too


    yea dont forget how many variations there were from year-tot-year


    i like the 3 way switches, u shaped neck w/out skunk stripe, bullet truss rod, and large headstock personally, but i still dont like strats anymore so it doesnt matter......

    well, after a long and exhausting search in this price range,
    I'm gonna be looking at there strats...

    Lite Ash Stratocaster
    70s Stratocaster
    Deluxe Player’s Stratocaster
    50th Anniversary Golden Stratocaster
    Jimmie Vaughan Signature Tex-Mex™ Strat
    US Special Highway 1™ Stratocaster

    MF has the Lite Ash Stratocaster® for Sale Price: $629.99
    BUT musiclandusa.com will sell me a new in box for $519.99

    That's some serious coin! These guys DEAL TO SELL ($110 diff)!
    (Ask for Monte...and thanks to SGM for the info on these guys)

    Has anyone played the LITE ASH STRAT?

    STRAT - THE QUEST CONTINUES...

    On the way back from PA, I went a bit out of the way to go to B&B Music
    in Lewes, Delaware to check out their Strats. They has SOME of the Strats
    I was interested in playing but not all (like the '70's RI STRAT).

    I was not impressed the STRAT DELUXE at all.
    The 2 extra settings were nothing special.

    The neck on the Jimmie Vaughn Strat was a baseball bat and the guitar
    was (maybe) average.

    The S-1 switching on the new Strats was VERY impressive.
    The extra settings were beefy but still had that STRAT sound.
    The neck was great. No wonder they are so expensive!

    The Lite Ash Tele was GREAT. They did not have a Lite Ash Strat.
    The Duncan pups were very clean but got hot real quick!
    Still, the sound was quite Tele. And there was NOTHING LITE about this guitar!
    The quality was very good.

    The Tele Deluxe was a true beauty! With the contour shape, it was SWEET.
    The S-1 wiring from what I was told is only 1 setting - both pups in parallel.
    But you can get a 4-way switch and get the same sound.

    The baby blue Tele Thinline was a nice looker. But the pups seemed thin.

    Maybe, if I get some free time (right!), I'll head to Virginia Beach. There are
    3 large music shoppes there (GC, Alpha, AL&M).
