This is a tough choice , at first I liked the second better because of more fatter sound but after a few more listens I will go with the first one...Has a very interesting dimension in its sound smile.gif

Sounds to me like the first one is the new one, but I'm not entirely sure smile.gif I like the second one better.

ok, I guess it's time to reveal which one it is. Most of you were right biggrin.gif

"Guitar 1" is this hollowbody strat
"Guitar 2 " is my white strat

Very interesting to see that some of you liked Guitar 1 more than Guitar 2 smile.gif

I say this just shows what a damn fine instrument the Fender Strat is - still plays like a dream even with its guts torn out. cool.gif

I prefered number one - because to me it had less distortion so we could hear more of the guitar's wood tone (what's left of it, that is! biggrin.gif). Perhaps because of low output pickups?

Either way it sounds like you have made like a good purchase inspite of the unpleasant surprise! biggrin.gif

Yes, the pickups has a big part of the tone of course. So to make this test fair I really should have used the same pickups on both the guitars, but that was a little too much work last night! smile.gif

Are the PU's original?

No, I don't think so because they don't look that old (so they can't be from the 70's). I have no idea what brand they are either. The seller didn't know, and there's no mark on them unsure.gif

Are you using Pod line 6 ? if yes, can you share your tones plz ?

Yes, I used a PODxt. The preset is the one we used in the Nocturnal Vision song. You can download it here smile.gif

how much you payed for that Marcus ?

I paid around 700 usd.

ok, I'll try to do this tonight!

Maybe it would be more fun if I make it a blind test and just refer to them as "guitar #1" and "guitar #2", so you won't know which one I'm playing on? you have to guess... biggrin.gif

Yeah sure, make a poll of which sound better smile.gif
EDIT: Ooops, too late. laugh.gif

are you gunna customize it? (scallop neck, new pickups, etc)

Hm... I actually like it as it is. So I don't think I'll change much, just some new springs in the back and a new pickguard (that's what I'm doing in that picture). I have a spare scalloped neck though, so I'll probably try and put that on too smile.gif

Man that looks not good... Well as long as it doesn't effect the tone, it's no big problem I gues. It doesn't seem like the previous owner had any respect for the guitar wink.gif

Marcus , I think this was a steal of a deal , the tone in my opinion is not going to be disturbed because the pickguard doesn't resonate too a great deal past the electronics you are using, I think it would take a fine tuned professional ear to hear any difference. You have obviously realized this as well, the butchering so to say could be much worse and at least doesnt show. It's a gem of a guitar. I would take it off your hands anytime you want to let go of it. smile.gif I have old Gibsons with dings and Kramers I wish were in mint but a old strat that sounds and looks good is priceless.
