I have one Strat, and it has inexpensive GFS Surf 90s and a matched headstock to make it bearable.

My condolences for your situation, we all have them. :wacko:

The G&L Skyhawk reissue is an excellent alternative for those who want a strat format without the now overused and generic body style and pickguard.
I love these.

When i think of Strats, i think single coils..

When i think LPs i think humbuckers

Firebirds, mini humbuckers... And so on...

A Strat shaped guitar with humbuckers is not a Strat.. A Les Paul with single coils is not a Les Paul and so on... To me at least... YMMV.

Maybe, but the iconic version of the Les Paul is not the one with single coils.

Maybe not to you! ;D
I'd say Gibson got it right somehwere in the early 50's.

I love offsets and I love them more and more each year but my favorite guitar is a Strat. I started out not liking Strats but then something happened. I really think Leo perfected the electric guitar with the Strat.

I sold the Strat I played through my university years. 1991 or 1992 Strat plus that I modded a bunch.

Of course now that it’s gone I miss having a Strat around. I never was able to bond with Teles, but I will always have a soft spot for Srats.

I would always buy and sell strats, it's seemed like every 4-5 years i'd get the urge., buy one, play it a bit and move it.

Just before Christmas, I picked up this guy:
