    The strat has 3 tones that are basically “identical”???


    The three tones are from the different pickups on the guitar – bridge, mid-body, and neck tones. They are ENTIRELY different!!! Some strats have a FIVE-tone switch for even finer tone selection, the “ins and outs” of the 3 main tones. Whoever wrote this article is most likely some tool who “studied” guitar in college. Try PLAYING the thing to actually know what the hell it is you’re talking about!

    An article about strats vs. teles illustrated by a copy of an SG? Epic fail. Anyway, the strat has 3 basically identical PICKUPS (unless you mod it like almost all guitar players can’t resist doing) which can produce a plethora of different tones, and if you rewire ala Jimmy Page, you can get dozens of different sounds. Essentially the tele has more “bite” and the strat has more “roar” and is more versatile (Mark Knopfler’s sting and David Gilmour’s howl both come out of teles).
