I finally ordered and received my Fender Stratocaster Billy Corgan signature. smile.gif

I really love it. The feeling is good. The sound is awesome. Much better than my poor RG270...

Compared to my RG270, they sound way better, obviously. I tried with ReValver MKIII which has a lot of highly distorded amps and the sound keeps very clear and intact. I am not the sound master so I can't really tell if they are cool but I really felt the difference by switching from my Ibbie to the Strat. But I cannot compare with another Strat unfortunately.

The neck pickup give a good clean sound, the middle pickup can get you a nice bluesy/funky feeling and the bridge pickup is full of power. Very versatile, that's why I bought it. It's not vintage at all though. wink.gif

Still need to try it a lot more and perhaps I will make a video...

Congrats!!! Those are great guitars!!! As Adrian says you should still be able to get some vintage type sounds out of it!
It is possible to Coil Tap those Pups to get a more genuine Single Coil sound!
