Best HSS/SSS stratocasters under £200 GBP?
Pretty much what it says on the tin. I'm looking to scratch my stratocaster itch. My last Strat-o-like guitar was a Farida - I strung it with 11s and the studs bulged out in the tremolo cavity, rendering it unplayable. Damn shame, because it was otherwise pretty great.
So what should I get to replace it? No need for it to be any kind of workhorse - it's for one thing, and one thing only - beating the **** out of, SRV style. Thick strings, big tone, bigger attitude.
If it can take 11's, or even 12s, I'm happy. But I don't want it to break like the Farida did.
(Note: For those of you who saw my previous thread asking for guitar advice, I bought the ESP LTD EC401VF. Most sustain of any guitar I've ever owned by miles)
