    Once you get a hold of those thecnical drawings, it'll be completely obvious why their designs become so great. Come on Gearpage, let's help out a new member, who I'm certain has no plans to make knock-offs of the real thing.

    When you get a tech drawings you'll see how perfectly proportioned a Strat is. The middle of the neck pocket is center. The middle of the horns divide the into the other quarters.There's balance and purpose to every angle.

    I've bent that shape most every way possible and IMO besides some Jag and Jazz bass back bout downward slant... the Strat just "looks" right. That design wasn't an accident.That's why it's so hard to variate it. They still look like a Strat but not as aesthetically pleasing .. IMO
