    This album pic gave maple neck sunbursts a bump in value [understatement].

    this is definitely easily google-able, but what were the pickup covers made of on the early Strats, and how did Buddy break his like that?

    Bakelite. His pick attack wore the bottoms of the covers off.

    I've always loved the look of the Dick Dale signature Strat but my fav is just the run-of-the-mill Time Machine '1960 Stratocaster' which doesn't seem to get talked about much.

    Not my favourite band by any means, but I always liked the look of the guitar

    Because Dick Dale was the Man! (and there's a severe shortage of gold sparkle strats in the world)

    Blackmore's original Deep Purple Strats, the Black one and the Sunburst. They rocked.
    Walter Trout's 1970s hardtail.

    Joe Perry and his various reverse Strats. First guy besides Hendrix or Dick Dale I saw playing one that way
