Why does nearly every guitarist I met by now use a strat? Why?! :wink:

Because its an awesome guitar.

I have two,

A custom Hot-Strat (Seymour Duncan HB in the bridge, two Seymour Duncan Singles behind it,with a Burswood stratocaster neck cause the the fender one died)

And a Custom 72 Telecaster with an EMG humbucker in the neck and a Seymour Duncan dimebucker in the bridge, its a metal monster.

I play alot of hard stuff and the EMG produces alot of twang and clean tones while the dime bucker produces some seriously tough sounding noise. Also the 72 Custom comes with dual fender HB's to begin with, its more or less a shortnecked Gibson SG in terms of electronics and sound.

Fender guitars are just a standard. You go into a guitar store and there are two Fenders for every one other guitar. It's like Levi Jeans. While there are a million and one companies that make jeans, Levi is everywhere and it's symbolic of more than most jeans because of it's long history.

As for the strat, it's because most music today relies on the clean and persistent noise that only a humbucker or two will produce, making the strat the baseline instrument, especially if you're just starting to get into it, because you don't know what else to get into.
Well, the Stratocaster typicly comes with three warm single coil pickups with a staggered, angled one in the bridge. It produces a huge range of sounds and has a warm sound in A440 with typical gauge strings, but you can change the tones so drasticly on a strat with differant string gauges that many musicians prefer it to having to buy expensive pedals, usually an amp overdrive + thick strings will produce a decent grunge/metal/ hard rock tone and switch to clean for some fat jazz and blues. Its incredibly versatile and many other brands (read: Ibanez) copies the general strat form.
As for me, I prefer the jangley, noisy tones that a telecaster would produce, if Turny didn't Frankenstein his tele, that is.
I have access to some incredible tele's, including a big, heavy yellow 1959 Telecaster with original pickup in the bridge, it can do some really great clean stuff and on a boss OD-2 puts out some joe strummer-esque sounds.

quoted instead of edited, oops
