When I saw someone mention in another thread about returning his brand new Strat because he couldn't keep the Strat with tremolo bridge in tune, it dawned on me, knowing how popular Strats are, how many people really aware of this enigma called 'keeping a Strat in tune"/ know how to keep a Strat in tune? I am just curious. Of course I'm not talking about any Strat without tremolo bridge or for those who do not abuse whammy bars and play one like a civilized cultured person... even then I'd think it would be a perilous precarious task to keep them in tune? Strat with tremolo bridge is a beast, a devil. Folks should know this before purchasing one (or suffer through it until you finger it out). You can't return a devil because it is a devil. You bought a devil; a Strat is a devil. You have to put the devil into submission and master the devil to dance for you. You master the beast; the beast is master-able, trust moi, but it requires tenacity and particular types of personality that can comprehend the incomprehensible. Why does this post feels like a déjà vu...??
