I agree 10000 % . That is my conundrum with Fender Strats , trying to get an decent overdriven tone . I have tried every thing imaginable , pedals , pickups etc. To me it's not even worth it to dial in the 2555X 's every which way loose . Fender Telecasters on the other hand are a joy to play and give me the tone and then some .For me I start with hating maple fingerboards. REALLY don't like the feel of a fingerboard with a finish on it, not in the least.
And then I can't get an overdrive tone out of a strat that I can stand. Other people can. I can't.
If I can't get an overdrive I like, I can't get a tone I like. I'm not much into clean channels.
