Custom strats are basically a deviation from the main model, with different pick ups, headstocks, and pretty much anything else on the set-up.
Many of the custom Strats are directly related to the geniuses who played them, for example the 1997 Jimi Hendrix Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster. Jimi is probably the most famous Strat player, and there are a few models that pay tribute to him – I wonder if he’d still be playing a strat if he was around today? Probably.
Although Hendrix is synonymous with Stratocaster, there is also the Tom DeLonge Stratocaster, and many many more. If you buy one of these guitars, it doesn’t mean that your are going to play Purple Haze as good as Stevie Ray Vaughan, but it’s a step in the right direction, and they do look good too.
There are also a lot of custom guitar collectors and sellers out there as well who are wise to picking up an eBay bargain, and selling it on for a raise. Many of these custom guitars are not exactly cheap, but that’s because they are limited production models, and they go up in value, and if you love guitars, and want to make a few quid over the years it’s a good option – you could buy shares, but they don’t look as good on the wall, and don’t sound so good plugged in either.
