Thanks for that one.

There are plenty of cuts where you might think something was played on, say, a Les Paul but it turns out to have been a Telecaster, or you thought it was Guitar A, but it turns out to have been Guitar B, etc., etc.

But on that one, you can pretty much say "OK, THAT was a STRAT, period. So distinctive.

There is something unquantifiable but definitely identifiable about that Strat neck pickup tone.

It can be smooth, it can smoke, and it can eviscerate. It has a very organic quality about it.

You're thinking of the studio recording of Stairway to Heaven, aren't you.

Nice tone, even if it's very SRV-like. That Strat neck pup tone with overdrive is one of my favorite tones.
