    2011 Deluxe with v neck vs 2017 Professional stock neck, I believe modern c

    I have the choice, both felt nice. However the V was a bit different. I guess I am asking g because of the differences being offered. I know what they are, but in terms of s-1 switch and pickups. Is there anything I am sacrificing that will be lost if I go with the 2017 professional? I don't want to lose out seeing as they are both the same price. The 2011 deluxe is sunburst with maple v neck and the 2017 professional is olympic white with maple neck.

    Yes first post and figured I'd go right to the source, which is this forum.

    I like Strats with simpler features and a V neck so I'm not help here!

    This probably won't help much either...

    However...

    I like "old-school" Strats, that do what a Strat does so well... So... Things like S-1 switching and even "fat-Strats" don't interest me, at all... People seem to love 'em though... Especially those who need to cover a lot of tonal territory on one guitar...

    As far the neck? I have one with a soft V, and one with a '50's style fat neck... Love 'em both...

    Basically... Buy the one that puts a smile on your face...

    What kind of music are you playing? That will (should) affect your selection.

    But really, it's like this: If you want a modern Strat that plays and sounds better than the Stratocasters of yore buy a new standard Strat under the name de' jour. If you want one de-featured and built like they did in the old days - you pay extra. It's genius marketing.

    Millions and millions of guitars have been sold under the false pretense that they will make you a better player. As Kenny says, buy the one that makes you smile. If in doubt buy both and then flip the one that you don't like as much.

    YMMV, IMHO and so forth.
