billlorentzen Posted July 13, 2014 Share Posted July 13, 2014 My main gigging guitar is a custom made "super strat" type guitar (ebony fingerboard, chambered body, flame maple top, EMG SA pups, original '80s Floyd Rose). It has tons of sustain and a very solid feel to it. To me Fender Strats feel more flimsy and sort of dead, with less sustain and kind of a softness to them. (I don't mean to put Fenders down -- obviously a lot of players love them, but that's not what I'm looking for.) If you own a Korean or American JTV 69, would you say it is more of the Fender feel or more like an Anderson or other high end super strat? I realize it doesn't have a Floyd, and that could be a sustain factor -- low mass bridges give less sustain. Obviously it doesn't have EMGs either, but that's not really relevant to the question; I just mentioned that to fully describe it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
