As an extra question, are the Fender replicas as well built as the Gibson copies?
Wow, that looks much nicer than some of the ones I have seen on YJ. The last one I was looking at had a 3 piece body and it made me wonder if someone had just put a Nav neck on a random strat body. That looks like a single piece body and highly figured neck. Is it a thick profile?I have a 1980 Navigator Les Paul, nitro finish, sold flame top, neck is one piece with no wings, two piece back.
Weighs 9 lbs even
I have a Navigator Strat, 2004 NST 500, was a custom order, pure nitro finish
I also love the older Espartos. The nitro/1-piece body models are very nice if you don't mind the narrower nut width:From what I have seen there are lots of poly Espartos and Telespos are mixed in with the high-end nitro/1-piece body models. I'm not sure if that is based on the particular year or if they always had a mix.
One Telespo I had was amazing, but had the slightly narrower nut width.
Setting aside the neck size and whether they are vintage-correct, the nitro/1-piece body Espartos & Telespos are right up there with my high-end Tokai & Greco Strats from the same era.Were the older strats relatively thin necks? There were a few older espartos I looked at but wasn't sure if they were any better than early 80s Grecos or Tokais.
