Hey guys! I used to have a strat and sold it. I remember it played great and had a nice vibe but it wasn't my preference. I prefer Gibsons and PRS. Anyway, I have the itch now and am thikning instead looking at a fat strat so I can have my humbucking bridge. Anyone recommend this or is it better to stick to the standard strat and maybe use a small single coil sized humbucker instead? Big difference? What about the swimming pool route? Is that a big issue? Does G&L use the swimming pool route? Right now I have two Les Pauls, an SG and a PRS CE-22. I was looking for something different so a strat popped back in my head. Then I started thinking or G&Ls or other stratty guitars, but I always find a personal vibe with Fenders, just like I do with Gibson and PRS. I even started lookin at Peavey Wolfgangs again and other guitars as I am always on the look out.....LOL. Then I was thiking I might want a better trem like a Floyd, etc. Thanks!
