    Great sounding guitar, but most of all it looks awesome! If it had 22 frets, and I had the money, I'd be all over that one!

    Can that Strat do other styles other than Eric Johnson? Still sounds great though.

    thanks for sharing those pictures and videos CS. You have a fantastic looking and sounding guitar! After all of this, I would sell my current strat and pick up one of this if i could.

    :thumb:I love the sunburst models great tone fine looking guitar, if i bought one the neck would have to go for something more conventional. For me its like playing a mini rowboat tried one in a shop and just couldnt get used to it.

    Im assuming not a 60's LP neck right? I tried one at GC and found the EJ neck a bit hefty to my small hands and tiny short fingers. If only I could have larger hands. My hands are so small that I have to actually pick women's sizes when shopping around for gloves.

    I think I just scored an EJ Strat used for a good UK price and the best thing is I got it on 0% finance!

    In the UK the Arts Council have a scheme called 'Take It Away' where you can buy new or used music equipment from certain retailers for 0% over 9 months.

    So I saw this used EJ sunburst Strat and have been cleared to get it using this scheme. Means I can leave my cash in the bank and spread the cost with no penalty / interest.

    That and it is used so the price is way better than on a new one.


    Just have to wait for the papers to be sent to me, I sign them and post them back. Then they send me out the Eric Johnson Strat.

    Looking forward to this one....

    ( last year I got a new Les Paul using the same scheme)

    one available at the time.
    great score!
