I'd say it's tone that get's the job done. Now, my question to you is this.... how does it compare to your Suhr?

Nice lesson thanks Robert.
The guitar  sounds sweet, shame they have no interest in making lefty versions.

My Suhr is a different animal. It's the best sounding guitar I have - it just rings like a bell. And it costs 4 times as much as the Hell ZeroDot. The Hells sound great considering the price point. Much has to do with the excellent pickups.

Lefty Hells are likely coming...

My point exactly! That Suhr is a beautiful sounding axe! Me and Strats really don't bond, but if I were to get something like it, it would be one of those! A Suhr Classic! Beautiful guitar! But then again, based on my tastes and what really works for me, it would be a Suhr Classic T! I guess that makes me a single cut guy. ;D

My Suhr Classic sounds different than a Strat. It's easier to get it to fit into a wide variety of styles, whereas a Fender Strat can sometimes feel "limited" in its application for different sounds. My Suhr Classic sounds great with heavy distortion, for example. Most single coil strats struggle there.

It's really nice gear like that, that gets me going. I know I don't need it, but it's so tempting! I'm trying to get rid of stuff 'cause I'm planning on winding down. I can't justify spending dough like that for fun. If I were in a gigging, money making band well, things would be a whole lot different. Hell, I don't even have like a handful of neighborhood guys to jam with twice a month. I'm getting rid of the bulk and maybe keep a little this and that.

You could sell off a bunch of gear, and settle for 1 or 2 high quality guitars, and one amp. 1 or 2 effects. Done?

:D

Absolutely! Great suggestion. But temptation is somethin' else eh?  ::) Naw, but seriously folks.... my best years are behind me. Got a chance to play with bigtime folks, bigtime festivals an' all that. Keepin' a few treasures at the ready is a good idea. Plus talkin' gear is fun too, even if we don't live in the same time zone or down the street from each other.
