just bought an EJ strat
Even tho Im not his biggest fan, I respect the mans opinion on guitars and gear in general to the highest degree. Im not a traditional strat player either in the sense that im a jazz player. but this guitar is SICK. comparing it to historic gibsons and custom shop strats, it was still the best sounding/playing/feeling guitar in the store (larry morgan's in dallas, tx). plus it was $1000 cheaper than most of the other custom shop strats and no string tree (thank god, for that and the tone on the bridge pup instead of middle).
This guitar is NUTS. if you havent played one yet, go try it out, you wont be disappointed.
Ill post pics later today.
oh yea, forgot the reason i posted this. i had a klein on order (great guitars but...). i called the guy every day from mid july to yesterday to see where my guitar was and he was unreachable by both phone and email. so i got salty and since the guitar was already 3 months late, REALLY wanted my axe. so yesterday, im THIS close to buying the EJ strat and i call again to see if maybe ill get thru, and I actually get him on the phone. i asked him when my guitar would be finished, he said another 3 months which would put him 6 months late and 18 months in total. considering i had $1500 already invested in the guitar and another $2400 due ($3900 total). and as a college student, that was too long to wait for something i cant play. so i got my refund and bought the strat. makes you think it was meant to be.
