So I was playing my 1979 american strat and my friend brought over his 2006. They both play amazingly well but it got me thinking. what would you all prefer.

Neither. I seriously dislike strats, though not as much as I thouroughly despise telecasters!

I'd have to have the '79 just for the vintage factor. You can get a new one at anytime. New ones aren't as hard to come by.

I used to hate Teles too, but man, some guys can get such a great tone from those things.

I own a '78 and I have to say I have yet to play a guitar that plays as smooth as mine. Not even brand new $2000 Strats feel as good to me as the 78 does.

Try a G&L Legacy, S-500 or Comanche. I can almost guarantee the old Fender Strats will just become a memory in about 10 minuets flat!
Same can be said for the G&L ASAT compared with the Telecaster.
And just before I here the first "How dare you!", every guitar I've just named was designed by Leo Fender and George Fullerton (George & Leo hence 'G&L') to be better than the original 'branded' Fenders!

Know what... my local guitar shop only caries G&L ... i have tried most of them and disagree. I dont have much experience with newer strats except for the occational guitar center visit and when a friend brings one along but the G&L's dont do it for me really.

It might be because I have only played new ones not setup etc but.... just my opinion

@dsesh

I think you might have a point about the G&L's in your music shop needing a setup. I have an S-500 and an ASAT and they are the finest instruments I've ever played and yes, in the past I've owned both an American Fender Strat and a Gibson Les Paul. After discovering G&L It didn't break my heart to part with either of them. Tell the boss in your music store he's missing out on some good sales!

Definitely 1979. Great year for cars and girls.

Anybody can own a new Strat...but only a chosen few should have the honor of driving a 79 Trans Am or playing a 79 Strat. Not only cars and guitars were great back then...you should have known the girls...halter tops were the dress code.

hahaha, "smokey and the bandit", eh? lol

I wish halter tops were the dress code again ;) but the cheerleaders skirts are really really short at my school...
I'm roughly 6'0" tall, and when I walk behind some 5'1" little cheerleader and I can almost see her underwear under the actual skirt just by walking behind her... haha yeah, very short... there's probably about 3 inches of actual skirt now!
but I digress, I would love to have a vintage 79 strat by Fender, as well as the Trans Am.

@ soy.el.che It was not a choice between getting them.. I own a 79 and I love it more then any new strat... plus its worn to perfection and plays like a dream...
