FWIW, I'm tweaking a Carvin bolt-on right now, I'll let you know how it comes out.

The Tiger will be a little meatier sounding, the Strat's a bit thin in comparison, mostly because of all that wood and weight behind it, different fretboard, etc.
Here's a one-on-one comparison; the Tiger went to Gary Brawer for a truss rod issue. The first cut of BEW is the American Standard Strat with the same electronics as the Tiger has. The second BEW is the Tiger two years later. Both direct to the board through the AxeFX Ultra, so no changes at all on the signal path.

Tiger's a little more full sounding, but the Strat still sounds decent.
