Smile My Fender DOUBLE Fat Strat...

First of all - hello! This is my first post on the jemsite forums! I thought I would show everyone my current baby...it's a Fender American Deluxe Double Fat Strat.



Does anyone else have a double fat strat?? I certainly have seen plenty of regular fat strats, but can't recall finding another DOUBLE fat strat owner. I get a great tone from the two Seymour Duncans, and I'm surprised more people haven't scarfed this thing up...

Re: My Fender DOUBLE Fat Strat...

That is a beautiful color!!! What is a fat strat? Sorry if I seem dense. And what makes a double. I'm trying to learn my guitar types now.
I have a yellow Fender strat that I adore.

Re: My Fender DOUBLE Fat Strat...

A fat strat has a humbucker and a double fat strat has two of them if I'm not mistaken. And yeah, lovely color.

Thanks! I guess I have a fat strat Fender then. I can call it that without feeling like a retard, which is a common feeling for me.

Well, if it'll make you feel any better, just look at any of my drunken posts from last night. I swear I need one of those breathalyzer ignitions for my computer.

Oh yeah, and I don't think EVERY strat with a humbucker is a fat strat, just so you know. Yours may be, but not necessarily.

Nice guitar!

I'm really digging that colour too.

Did you buy this new?

Why, do you feel like you can't be trusted? For me it is impossible to type if I am trashed. Have fun at your party!

Re: My Fender DOUBLE Fat Strat...

What Duncans are there?!

Great color and cool pearloid pickguard (or is it just the flash from the camere that makes it so shiny?!)

Thanks - it is quite a beautiful color! Yes, I bought it new around 2001 when I was like 16 and have managed to keep it in great condition.

Um to be honest, I don't know which Duncans are in it...when I bought it I wasn't as tech-savvy with guitars - I just knew Duncans would sound sweet in a Fender...and now this model is discontinued, so I'm not sure how to look it up! Yeah, I love the pearloid pickguard - and no, it's not the flash - it really is that shiny and beautiful...

Thank you! Well, hopefully I will be purchasing a Jem sometime this summer and that will be my baby with a Floyd.

Here's another gratuitous pic of it...this time in action!

I finally opened my baby up to see which pups are inside and I have a SD '59 in the neck and a SD Pearly Gates Plus in the Bridge - sounds reeeeeeal nice.
