    Go on Jim -keep rubbing it in!
    I have to make do with a common or garden Mexican Strat!
    I do have other axes to alleviate the envy though!

    Buddy Holly played a Fender Stratocaster, He had a unique style with only strumming downward, never up...gave that amazing " Holly " sound.

    Never really been a Strat person. I've always got on better with Teles. Lovely looking guitar though (y)

    I ever used to be a strat person either. It was always Les Paul's for me (how I wish I still had that 1969 gold top)
    Until I got a Mexican Strat off eBay that is. I play that more than my Les Paul now. I Got a Mexican Tele to try too but it just doesn't have the range of tones that a strat can deliver. I keep the Tele in "Keef" tuning and use it on Brown Sugar and Honky Tonk Women cos it really nails that sound.
    Since I started going to Fun rallies I seem to to play the acoustic more than anything else and have ended up thinning the electric herd considerably.

    Duhhh! I remember what a Stratocruiser was when BOAC bought some to try and fly the Atlantic route, they were very noisy as well, but I am very old now.

    Great nostalgia Jim!
    The nearest I got to touching a Stratocaster was entering the music shop in Tin Pan Ally in London.
    I think my dribble stains are still on the carpet! I do posses a Hank Marvin plectrum he sent to me in the 60's along with Bruce's plectrum which is rare! I have played a Burns but that is as good as it got for me.
    Ah happy days .... sigh! :D(y)

    Yeah - lovely guy. My son was his roadie for several years. I even got to babysit his instruments when he went home to the USA for a while. That's when I fell for the mandocaster :)

    This is my favourite at the moment. The sound is lovely and the finish on all the Artcores I've seen is superb. I have a thin line one as well which is just as good.
