    one knob would be for volume. One would be for the Tone (Bass-Treble). The other is not there on my guitars. so i have no idea.. Floyd Rose is a type of bridge which lets you use Whammy without having to lose the tuning.. Echo and Vibrato are Amplifier effects. They have nothing to do with the actual guitar.. The stick like thing is a whammy bar which lits you do lots of pitch variations and weird sounds , etc

    YOu cant change amp settings from your guitar... Its done either by a foot pedal or a multi effects generator. Go to musician friend website (Tru Google) and find out a lot about gear..

    No a foot pedal controls your amp effects. A distortion pedal just distorts your guitar signals..

    ok A foot pedal just changes your amp effects like Chorus, The Amp drive.. Where as a Multi effects generator, it plays a dummy part and acts like an amp.

    A multi Effects Generator.. Acts like an amp.. I hope you know what an amp is.. Its a circuit to Amplify the sound. A Speaker and And Amp are Different. I just hope you know what the difference is??

    The Fender Stratocaster models have three knobs and right next to it a selector switch.

    If you notice on the Stratocaster it has three pickups, the five way selector switch chooses between these pickups. I believe that the five positions are:
    1-neck
    2-neck + middle
    3-middle
    4-bridge + middle
    5-bridge

    now for the three knobs, the top knob is volume. the other two are tone controls for the selector switch to alter the tone coming from the pickups.

    Now the actual bridge on the Fender Stratocaster has a little screwhole on the side of where the jack plug is, your tremelo arm goes in here.

    By the way all the other copies of this great guitar have the same layout, they just sound worse :)
