Agreed. I had the sweetest poly Strat, beautiful warmoth flamed maple cap tobacco body, but in the politically correct "nitro" movement I dissasembled it and sold the body. HUGE mistake., Best sounding and playing Strat Ive ever owned.
I'm trying to rectify that mistake somewhat by taking the neck from the Poly Strat and building a Tele, but i don't know... Id much rather have my Strat back.
Both have same neck and PU configuration (Dimarzio Evos).
One is a Mahogany/Maple LP with nitro finish...the other is a Korina/Maple with poly finish. Both are solid wood, so the difference between the korina and mahogany are slight at best. BOTH SOUND GREAT!
