    Finally got it last night. Unbelievable! I think you were right Crotch. The Clapton Strat may be the best USA Strat you can buy.

    I got this one in Olympic White for $1150, which is the color I wanted. Guitar is practically new and just needs a setup. The only thing I'm not a fan of are the tuners but I already knew it had the vintage tuners before I bought it. It's still worth every penny regardless.

    Nice. Looks brand new. While the vintage tuners aren't my favs either I have never had a tuning issue so not a lot of need to mess with them. Especially with the trem blocked.

    What's your opinion of the Journeyman relic EC? How does it compare the the CS EC other then being ash versus alder and the sanded neck?

    Was it a special order? Anyway, I'd be curious as to your review when you finally get it. And pics of course. :cheers:

    Yeah, and the place I ordered from isn't a custom shop dealer but my guy was able to get me one as a favor for a great price. However, with that said, I think I'm pretty low on the totem pole :eek2:
