Members ffud Posted January 31, 2010 Members Share Posted January 31, 2010 Hey so I'm trying to find some things I can do to my strat to make it brighter. I'm not concerned with electronics, I am quite happy with what I have in there, However, if I were to play my strat and say a Gibson SG 61 RI both unplugged, the gibson is naturally much brighter. Does anyone know if I can get closer to this sound by doing some mods, or is that brightness coming from the mahogany vs whatever it is my strat is made of (I think alder.) I have read about sanding off any finnsh not exposed (under pickguard, neck cavity etc) and I have thought about blocking the trem (or maybe trying to install a gibson style hard tail) would any of these things brighten it up, or am I just screwed based on the type of wood its made of? thanks.
