    I don't know about you but if I want to go to a different tuning, it means I have to re-setup my guitar. Which includes truss rod and bridge adjustments. I'm really not a big fan of doing that stuff.

    I got a quick question. Why do symphony X use C standard tuning? Why not E standard?

    I mean I have nothing against symphony X using C standard because it sounds awesome, but for me I hate tuning down and such, I personally favor the standard tuning anyway.

    They don't use C standard. They use D standard.

    I am standard 9! If I jumped around with tunings my guitar would go insane (out of tune) very badly.

    Hey, Blackmore plays Strats, if it wasn't for him the metal would cease to be.

    Don't forget Uli Roth, well used to play strats

    I think the guy from Narnia plays them too. Same with Roland from Masterplan and the guy from Ark.

    all you need to know is that i play a strat and i'm ALL METAL!!!


    i have a jackson that is as metal as it gets (a freind thought it was even MADE of metal.."it IS the ultimate metal guitar, after all its made of metal!!"...no), and i play as much metal on both.

    you just have to upgrade your bridge pickup if you haven't already...you're getting nowhere on rhythm w/ a low out put single coil (or 2 at once)
