For the past two years I have been playing my CS Les Paul and my 335 both guitars I love. I sold my strats a few years ago to get a Baker, I regret selling my strats but what is done is done. Anyway I can't find the right strat now because? Is it because strats are not as full sounding as my LP obliviously? What can I do? Am I destined never to have the love of a strat anymore? I just picked up a new Vintage 50's strat custom ordered through a shop here in LA. 1st the frets are too low or the action is just off, I found it hard to bend the strings on the upper part of the neck and the finish that Fender puts on all their guitars necks now. Their is also the sound. Do I add new pups and if I do what to put on? Do I re fret the guitar and just try and make this the strat a keeper? I am bummed out because I just want a great players strat and I can't seem to find one. By the way this is like the 4th strat I have picked up and can't bond with in the past year. Help all advice is welcome.
