A recent Strat/Tele morphed guitar introduction got me thinking about whether or not this could really effectively be done successfully. So the renowned Tele bridge tone is expected to be indebted to the Tele bridgeplate configuration. And what about the sweet Strat neck tone? Since you can't do both hardtail and trem Strat configurations to the same guitar, has anyone played enought Strat hardtails to judge if that characteristic neck tone is still there? I expect that a lot of players might claim that a clamped Strat block is close to the same thing, but probably not. While I know that has some effect, it probably really comes down to hardtail -v- trem block, clamped or floating. So anyone who knows the Strat neck tone also played a bunch of hardtail Strats?
