Re: Strat-Style Design Opinion
It's a matter of taste. I don't like the swimming pool rout and had someone use a block of mahogany routed for the single coils, I also had a tele with the center filled with maple. Well the Mahogany warmed the guitar up and the maple made the tele brighter. But some people like the the sound of a chambered guitar. I think the swimming pool rout gives the guitar a more hollow airy sound. There also could be things going on electronicly because of the pickups being so close together in a strat. Not having some wood in between could also have many effects acousticly, I really don't know for sure. All I do know is I don't like the way a guitar sounds with the bigger rout.
