Got A YJM

I just picked up a NOS YJM strat in yellow-blonde with maple neck.
What a great guitar. I'll post pix in a day or so. Man, it sounds great through the Marshall stax.

Re: Got A YJM

The only problem for me with the YJM is the scallops. I don't think I could get used to them. While I have a very light touch I think they would screw with me bends.

Give us a vid demo of it ya old hippie.

Re: Got A YJM

No trouble with scallops- they're great for bending cause you get under the string.
This one weighs in right at 7.3 LBS so it's the lightest YJM I've ever played.

Re: Got A YJM

Personally, I love the guitar but just because it has 3 Dimarzio SC's and a name attached to it doesnt justify the price IMO

Re: Got A YJM

IMHO The only true YJM Strats are exactly what you have there, the creamy blonde with maple, all others just look weird, its like seeing a Brian May in anything but Red.

is the action on that like absurdly high or is it just me?

Re: Got A YJM

I think the scallops make the action look high.

There's a little more to it than that, even so you are right in Clapton or EJ strat range and only a few hundred over a American Deluxe.

Re: Got A YJM

Yeah, I mean there is alot to it but the blunt way to look at it is like I said, a scalloped neck strat with Dimarzios and a name on it
