Many of us love super strat style guitars, with thin neck, high output pickups and tremolo that allow to do some insane Dive-bombs. So I recorded some of my favourite guitars, to see how they hold up together. This is long video, because I was trying to show as many sounds as I could. but below the video you can find timecodes for faster navigation.
Unfortunately I didn’t have any Jackson, Kramer, Ibanez, ESP guitars at the moment, so there isn’t a comprehensive superstrat battle, but I did my best. Maybe next time I’ll have more guitars to try.
Obviously, every guitar makes you play differently; strings, pickups weren’t the same, so take this review with a grain of salt. My playing is not the best but im not auditioning for you band anyway 🙂
As for me I’m big Hamer guitars fan, I feel that Hamer and some really good Gibson custom Shop reissues has that vintage mojo that everyone is looking for.
but I’m sure everyone there is guitar for everyone, they all good in their own way, and everybody has his own preferences so opinions will be all over the place.
