NGD! Finally found MY Strat!!!!

I have had a few strats that I just never bonded with but this weekend I think I found the one.

It is a 2011 Deluxe strat in Candy Apple. Maple board, noiseless pickups and a more vintage look with the cream covers and knobs along with a nice darkened tint to the neck. Love the locking tuners. Got it for a little over $900 at Sam Ash (they had a nice sale going on)

It plays awesome and sounds incredible. For once I am actually using the middle pickup.

Along with my new Hot Rod Deluxe III amp I pickled up, I am in clean heaven.

Re: NGD! Finally found MY Strat!!!!

Hey!!! Congrats man!!!!

I've always said that I hate strats.......but every once in a while one pops up thats just a dream to play. Mine was a MIM 60th anniversary. Damn nice guitar IMO.

Maybe post some clips of the new gear?? I'd love to see/hear it all together.

Re: NGD! Finally found MY Strat!!!!

Very pretty.
My boyfriend has an American Standard that's something like 20 years old.
Same color but I don't think the neck is tinted, I think it just got darker with age.
It was his dad's, it plays nice and sounds really sweet clean.
I'm still dreaming of a white Jem though.

Good deal!! I've been itching for a strat, but I'm waiting for a Richie Sambora reissue.

Re: NGD! Finally found MY Strat!!!!

Thanks all, it is really a great player and just so different sounding than the Herc and 550 I have. Cant wait to start recording more with it, need to get another mic to record with.

Speaking of the Hot Rod, I bought a MXR Dist+, a TS9 Tubescreamer and a MXR Carbon Copy delay and a Zoom Dave Mustaine Multi effects pedal. This amp takes pedals so well. Using just the clean channel, the Tube Screamer sounds incredible, the Dist+ is giving me a nice crunchy sound and the Mustaine pedal has some bad*ss metal tones in it which sound good even through the cleans of a Deluxe.

I am hoping the Wampler Pinnacle is as good as I have heard it is. Need that singing lead tone for the stuff I do. Dimitar has a vid using one and if I can get a sound even close to that, I'll be happy.

Re: NGD! Finally found MY Strat!!!!

and then it was gone.....

although it supposedly had a high grade gloss on it, my hands and fingers kept sticking on the maple board and neck, problem #1, Problem #2 is that it was not stratty enough with those noiseless pickups. I have been learning and playing some Robert Cray stuff and he plays with position 2 and 4 a bunch and the guitar did not have the plucky twang I wanted. I will say though, it had the first middle pickup that I was willing to use, sounded good.

Anyway, the search continues.

I just noticed this is post #1000. Wooohooooo

I was actually thinking a Strat Plus, I had one when I first started playing guitar that a friend sold me cheap. I should have kept it but even then I wasn't quite sure what I wanted. Seems to be a reoccuring theme.

I know I want a mid nineties American start, even if it was not a plus.
