Green ST Blue Pearl
Here we wanted to create a delicious strat with a really powerful sound. We chose a P90 pickup in the bridge position and two hot singelcoils as complementary pickups. A good neck is very important for the playability. So we chose a relatively narrow and thin neck with satin finish on the back. We are pleased with the results - a real players strat.
The single coil pickups with slightly higher output matched with a P90 pickup in the bridge give the sound a different character than a traditional strat. More power and a warmer sound with less treble. The pickups are very easy to get into distortion. You can squeeze in a proper level of distortion and the sound is fat and beautiful. We have lifted this a bit further by routing the bridge PU, which is normally very sharp, through an tone pot. This peels off some highs as you can control the tone easy by turning the tone pot, instead of having to adjust the amplifier. Just roll off some treble if you want a fatter sound.
The neck is thin and beautiful with a comfortable and fast D-profile. String action is low. We really love to play on this one, it is so comfortable and easy to use. It is relatively light so you can stand for a long gig without an aching back and neck. Mechanics such as bridge, tuners, pots and pickup selector are really good quality for a guitar in this price segment. It always surprise us that it is possible to get a really good and exclusive guitar for this money.
Are you looking for a really useable and good looking strat, with a good fat rocksound at a moderate price, this is a good choice. Perhaps as a complement to a more traditional strat...
