  • mid life crisis : new strat guitar wanted

    Hello ppl! hope you are doing fine.
    After 6 years with no new guitar, I decided it's time for upgrades. I grew up with classic rock and rock, then metal, then thrash, death, industrial you name it, then came the funk metal, nu-metal years, then Djent. Today I feel like going back to more relaxed times. I am starting to move away from modern sounds.

    So long story short : I want a new strat which must :
    - have playability , nice upper fret access
    - 22 frets
    - nice shreddy radius (12)
    - classic looks
    - no humbuckers
    - all sort of sounds
    - white
    - maple fretboard
    - locking tuners

    So basically I want this : https://shop.fender.com/en-GR/electr....html?rl=en_US

    What do you say? Thanks!

    Well, that's a nice Strat although I don't particularly like big headstocks. But everything else is great, and it isn't too expensive at all.

      I've been thinking the same thing lately but like mincer, I don't like the big headstock either or the mint pickguard

        Why do they use a mint pickguard and a black back cover?

          The pickup/preamp setup is a little unique on that guitar. Of course we are pickup tinkerers here, no reason to stop you. CN you play the guitar first?
          Oh no.....


          Oh Yeah!

            I'll try !! I'll try to use a fine greek shop (nakas.gr) and stay away from online shops as much as I can. (especially thomann.de)

                That is a mighty fine guitar, it just needs black pickup covers and knobs.

                  The Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster is a fine guitar. I like the preamp and the big headstock. Mine is an older one that came with Texas Specials and a six-point trem.

                      American elite strat.

                      Compound radius neck. I think it's the best fender strat made outside of the custom shop.

                        I have the Roadhouse Strat. (I like the big headstock.) The cool feature of the RH is that is has a battery box, so can support active pups. I have a Livewire II set in mine. Sounds killer.

                          Thanks for the review. So you think the stock pups/S1 switch and the 6-position tone shaper was meh?

                            The old Japan squier's aren't bad either-

                            one of the best strat's I've ever played, was an older Japan squier .
                            (my dad owns it).

                            I'm trying to persuade him, to sell it to me, or atleast let me borrow it.

                            High prices, doesn't always mean "high quality" or "good tone" !!

                              I bought it from a forum bro who had already removed all the active stuff before I got it. I had the Livewire Classic II's laying around, so it was a no-brainer purchase. I don't know how the original electronics sounded.
