    Yeah, interested to see what the Black Strat goes for. He modded the hell out of, and now he says that he never plays it because he plays his signature black Strats, says they feel the same. I know every guitar player says that about his sigs, has anyone played one of his?

    If you really wanted one I suppose you could build one from like Warmoth or something.

    I'd rather have the black strat in its original form from the Live at Pompeii days.

    Absolutely. The guitar is very much like Hawkwind's lineup- a different lineup for every album.

    For the Brits- I liken The Black Strat to Trigger's Broom.. :D
