Under which name we label all guitars that have the truly legendary shape of a Fender Stratocaster. First let’s check out the classic version (3 single coils, ash or alder body). You can mostly choose between a sheer maple neck (blond) and one with a rosewood fret board (dark). There is probably no other guitar that fits the human body better (beer belly shaped) and that is more versatile apart from the newer Superstrat, which we will discuss later on.

The bridge pickup gives you a downright biting sound and the neck pickup provides a wonderful bluesy sound (treble can be reduced by using tone control). The intermediate positions (neck and middle, bridge and middle) provide rippling, almost acoustic clean sounds that only the Stratocaster can produce.

Furthermore there is the cool vibrato bar that you can do really funny things with. Compared to Gibson-type guitars, you can say that the typical Fender (Strat and Tele) sounds more percussive and slappy, while Gibsons seem to hum a little more and make life easier for the guitarist.
