Mikey,

Can you post a link to anywhere where Steve made that quote?
He said that to me.

The bridge pickup has changed several times.


It was originally a single coil, then it went to an X2N for a while, then to the Bill Lawrence, then at some point back to an X2N


It was a bill lawrence through all the alcatrazz era.

but how come on the ALS dvd commentary he tells a story about going out to buy a proper strat for that album, is the sticker strat a mexican or jap guitar? did steve just wanna get a usa model
what do you guys think?
I dont know about the ALS commentary.

His strat is a 70's strat. That means its an American made strat. They didn't have all the different outsourced strat hierarchy nonsense then. . . If you had a Fender strat, you had a FENDER AMERICAN STRAT, and theyre was no question about it. :)

His strat was a "proper strat" at one time. But, he's hacked at it, covered it in stickers, put a DiMarzio X2N and a Floyd Rose on it, which has dramatically altered the sound to a more versatle instrument, but. . takes away the stratish sounds.

If he said he wanted a "proper strat" for the ALS commentary, he was probably referring to an un-modded one. ;)
late 70's strat according to my friend :wink:

he also pointed out that he "screwed it up" because he put a locking nut with locking tuners. and i thought what's the point in that, the locking nut, seeing as how the tuners lock anyway :?

Wonder why it wasn't used for The Boy From Seattle?
