    I heard that the jap strats dont have the same sound clarity and arent as good as a usa made one and are cheaper than the usa models as well. Does your's play well six?

    Jap one's so far as I am aware are not made any more. They moved the plant to mexico a while back. Jap strats are (or certainly when i got mine) generally seen as one step down from USA strats. Same parts just built in a dfferent country. Mines lasted 7+ years now. I choose it because i ike it's warm but clean sound. Only strat I tried and preferred was a Lone Star Strat but at £550 back then it was far beyond the £350I got my jap for.

    i been playing 3 years, started with a encore strat copy thing, dispite it being cheap its actually quite nice to play lol, but i got a bc rich beast which i soon got bored of, it looks nice but you really only pay for the shape, still plays nice though. at the moment i've got my eyes set on the f-400fm ****ing excellent guitar and looks great its got the EMG 81 active pickups :eek: damn i need some money though :mad:

    apparently, a good amplifer is as good as a good guitar, eg. you could be playing a fairly cheap guitar and have the best amp and it would sound perfect..

    Not totally, yes a good amp can make a poor guitar sound better but a great guitar will make a great amp sound out of this world. But bearing in mind alot of tone effects come from the way you play.

    With a good guitar it's as much about how if feels as to how it sounds. The better the feel the better your playing and so therefore the better it sounds :)

    heehee I have possibly the smallest amp out on the market! It's like 15wats or something lol.. I love the sound of Stratocastors, I played one at the music store a while back and I almost fell in love with it..
