High there
has anybody here got or played a Strat with a Mahogany neck or body or both, I thought a neck might give my Strat a lot more juice and warmth, but if I do change it it will definately have to retain it's strat characteristics, which it should as that has a lot to do with the pickups, anyone care to share any light on this?

Did you mean a Pine neck? or body? I am led to beleive the neck makes more difference to the tone.

Just the body. Pine is way too soft for a neck and with a pine body you'll get warmer tones with your typical maple or maple/rosewood Strat neck.

Here's a thread with plenty of pine goodness.

There's a Strat somewhere late in the thread, it's mine and has a typical maple neck and lots of fat, warm, stratty tones.

I have the mahogany HSS American Special Strat that MF and a few other places sell.

Except for the humbucker in the bridge, it still sounds like a Strat. It's a fantastic guitar.
