    Built my own hot rod with a mid Eighties '62 RI Strat. Went nuts with EMGs and vola, the David Gilmore package.

    But I made it long before They marketed it as such. I actually hadda think to get it. No treble cuts at all, just mid add and the other is bass/treble add. Killer guitar, but I would be fonder of the EJ Neck, The 7" radius is a bit cramped.

    I even mother-of-toilet-seated-it and then EMG copied me:D

    you did a great job, that is one purdy strat!

    Yea im up for building another strat, the cool thing
    about building one, is if you do it over a period of time
    you can buy like the best neck one payday, best body
    the next payday, then harware, then the best pickups the
    third payday. If you have patience you can realy build a
    fantastic strat, (or tele) without breaking the bank or
    pulling out a credit card.

    that sucks about the EJ necks, they had them for over
    a year on eBay now they are disapearing, there are still plenty
    of bodies left though, and still good prices if you look. But
    year the EJ necks so nice, now disapearing.

    Hey i just looked on Stratosphere on eBay, they just lowered the price
    down to $620 and with an extra 10% off, making it $585
    still alot of money, but probably the lowest price for a while
    unless a bunch start showing up again

    No you cant get it from Warmoth. They wont make the thinner headstock.


    I was wanting the rosewood with binding version. They wont do round laminated fretboards. If you want binding you cant get a regular trussrod. You have to get that side adjustable one.

    Boy you cant find those anywhere can you?

    Its funny when those first came out everyone said they
    were rediculous now people are grabing up those EJ strats
    faster than the first style. You can still find the EJ maple necks on eBay
    but not the binded rosewood ones.

    I would like one of those necks to, wish EJ did a Tele version

    I think the Eric Johnson burst bodies are prolly among the nicest I have seen. Absolutely love the tummy cuts. I almost snagged a body on ebay. Gonna keep a lookout for another for sure.

    I have a white blonde EJ inbound! The guy did a light relic job on it so I got a really good deal. I'm just hoping it looks better in person. If it doesn't I might be refinishing it. See how it goes. I'm psyched though. They are fantastic guitars! :dude:
