Hi! I got a 2nd hand Eric Johnson last week, which is absolutely fantastic. It's got snap, chime and sound really quite creamy overdriven! Last night I compared it to my Fat 50s equipped SRV, and the SRV is an absolute tone turd in comparison . I sounds OK clean, but using the same OD settings as for the EJ, it just gets fizzy and muddy. Why is that? is it the wood? The electronics? Another thing is that the volume control on the EJ is really useable, whereas the SRV is just dead below 8. Better post some pics, otherwise no one will read the post EJ: SRV: What can I do to improve the SRV?
