I last bought a Strat around the time that John left the peppers. Always loved his tone. The news of him returning made me fall back in love with the classic and the modern Stratocaster sound. Revisiting Stadium Arcadium reminded me of the assorted rock tones that he got out of his vintage strats on that record. The wah work is pretty impressive as well. Did such a number on me, that I bought my first Strat in over ten years today, lol.
