NGD! The newly released Eric Johnson Thinline Stratocaster. Just received it yesterday and spent last night setting it up. Wasn't much to do though. This may be the first guitar out of all the Fenders and Gibsons I have bought that was setup perfectly right out of the box. I did set the pickups up and raise the D string just a hair. Intonation was dead on as well as action height and neck relief. Pictures do not do it justice. Playablility is fantastic. Sounds different than my other EJs (both maple and rosewood) but in a good way. Has some warmth to it and yet the Strat tones are still there. Blues playing awesomeness! Love the neck and middle pickups whether playing through my Friedman Small Box or through my 66 Super reverb. Playing clean or with some dirt both sound great! Still messing with the bridge pickup and almost there. Anyway excited to have it and I really like its uniqueness both in looks and tone. Sorry for the low quality pics.
