Come to think of it, I don't see any jazz guitarists with a Strat as their #1 axe..
maybe both. the boutique sound room has electrical issues. The Clapton strat is the only one that came clean. I even put down a Suhr after 5 seconds.
If it was heavy, electrical issues don’t matter. I dig teles and SGs/335s, it’s what fits.
... and I can't take 5 minutes of Yngwie.... there's your answer.
EMF do make a difference.
I just bought one so I say yes!
what kind of strat, or do they make them all the same (just kidding)?
Guitars amps pedals are like brushes and colors...paint away I say
I have 5 Strats/17
I use to own a MIJ 62’ reissue. I modded it some but never loved the vintage radius and it was heavy. Sold it. Been missing the tone for a few years but couldn’t find one with the specs I wanted. So I ordered a 60’s road worn sunburst body and a Robert Cray neck. I will take it in for a proper set up. Total weight on this one should be a light 7 lbs. Cant wait.
Hey JW, or anybody else, is it just me or is a Strat out of place on Room 335? The gal is talented, but a Strat for this song named after a Gibson ES 335? Maybe it's meh....
Compare that to the real deal:
If I had a small collection, say 4 guitars, a Strat would be one of them. Can't afford that right now, but one day!
I don’t have one... so I guess, yes.
Hmm, never seen Paco De Lucia with one, so I'm gonna vote No.
Not sure if George Benson has one lol
I have seen a few guys who play a strat for jazz. You are right though it is rare.
I love my Strat. Plays like buttah and sounds like a million bucks.
I want a 52RI Tele but I just paid my dentist half a Tele this week, and I'm gonna owe him the other half before the end of the year.
Cie la vie!
I don't know about the first question (does every good guitarist own a Strat?), but a person can make a Strat sound fat with a bit of work and gear. I like both of these versions. The Strat version has a different transient attack, but is still fat enough to make it work.
Lee used to be a client of my wife.
I don’t mind what kind of guitar she played! She did a heck of a job playing over that song! That’s really the only thing that matters.
Maybe but the best strats, IMHO, don’t say Fender on them.
Yeah she's good. It looks like she had to work a lot harder IMHO. I guess I'm lazy.
