Default Stratocaster Apreciation Thread

Hey, there are not may threads in this section so I thought I would add one that is close to my heart. Anybody else here got a passion for these amazing guitars?

I myself have run £650 into debt trying to buy two of these babies. I have 6 guitars (2 strats) and my problem is I like to keep all my guitars...

I have a 1991 Standard American with maple neck and black body and a beautiful 1989 American Strat Ultra, in 3-tone sunbusrt... beautiful!

Anybody else?

I used to think strats were the best untill i got my Paul Reed Smith, no other guitar has hooked me in like the one I have now. I tore apart my old Strat, and completely rebuilt it, custom painted it, all new hardware, then gave it to my 16 yr old brother in-law for his bday, he flipped out. It turned out really nice. Good guitars though. My first was a strat.

Lately I've fallen in love with the sound, but don't you think it looks kinda boring? I mean everyone has one, so hey...

I want a strat, all I have is a cheap-ass Squier.
They don't need any appreciation though!
They get plenty enough.

mmmm, on the Ultra I've got 4 lace sensor pickups (the bridge is a humbucker) that guitar gives sooo many sounds it's unbelievable! Honestly, it's incredible coz you can split the humbucker three ways aswell, there is everything there!
