I have no idea how it happened .. Probably happened insidiously like getting ketchup out of a brandy new glass bottle of Heinz (queue Carly Simon's "Anticipation") .. Or the movement of a glacier but
< hangs head in shame >
I forgot how great Rising Force Yngwie sounded

I have found that the only Strat tones I like have come from John Mayer, Mark Knopfler and David Gilmour.

I agree with Rory, Yngwie, and Jeff Beck.

I'd add:

- Gilmour on Pulse
- Knoppfler on the first two Dire Straits albums
- Trower on Bridge Of Sighs
- Jimi on Band Of Gypsys
- Krantz on Long To Be Loose
- Scott Henderson on his Live album
- Blackmore on anything :D
I was really surprised @ no Blackmore .. And Knopfler .. Little bummed because Buddy Guy is all-too-often overlooked ... And, i mean, no Ry Cooder?
I was thinking about Robin Trower but then I understood because of how many effects are at work (especially modulation) .. I was thinking in terms of Long Misty Days for Trower ..

Knopfler, EJ not being there is a joke.

Donnie Iris on Ah Leah is an amazing example of a strat through a full bore Marshall.

10 isn’t enough but some of what they chose defies logic.

Haha .. That's it .. Shake the cage, DB .. Shake the cage .. Are you the kid that would hit the hornet's nest with a stick without warning the other kids? Lol .. Had a neighbor like that .. If nothing else? .. He kept it interesting .. Take care
No, just trying to be funny. I own one Strat that rarely gets played. I also have a nice Tele, but that's it for Fenders and that's plenty. I much prefer Gibsons, Rickenbackers, Guilds, Danelectros and Supros.
