I'll show you mine if you show me yours (Strats)

I got my new American Deluxe QMT a week or so ago. I really dig it and the S1 system is pretty hip. I really like the ebony board. I dig the quilt and the wavy grain. Almost like having a flame and quilt in one guitar. The SCN pups are nice and lowered are very mellow which I dig. The DH-1 is very well balanced. I detest overly treble like buckers in the bridge.

Here is mine. Show me yours

Ok, so I only have 2 of them still, so what.

I'd like to get 2 more another EJ and a USA Deluxe.

That G&L has strange looking pups. Don't think I have seen those before.

They are exclusive to G&L, Z-coil single coils pickups. I think it's what separates the Comanche from the Legacy.

Re: I'll show you mine if you show me yours (Strats)

This thread is full of win! Cosmic, congrats on the new one - is it really bright with all that maple, alder, and ebony?

And since you asked...

60th Anniversary MIM Strat - Sheptone pickups, Graph Tech saddles, bone nut, Schaller locking tuners, push-push tone pot to enable the bridge pickup in every position.

Fender CS 65 relic - 50th Anniversary special - lovely guitar, made all the better by a refret with Dunlop 6100 fretwire (railway track). The other axe is a MIJ Dr K Telecaster - how could I resist it in that colour eh?

Stew Mac has a switch that basically does that without the push-push or push-pull pot. It gives you Neck, Neck + Middle, Neck + Bridge, Middle + Bridge, and Bridge. I have it in my Strat Plus and will be putting it in any and all future strats. You lose the middle pickup by itself, but to me it's worth it.

Not really, with these pickups you get a really good mellow tone with them low to the body. I have the set pretty low. I dig the tone and the sustain is equal with the RGT220a I had.

Dudes these are some sweet strats and I dig that Tele with three pups.
