Thanks, and yes it does sound amazing. I can get almost anything out of it.
You reminded of one of my strongest points: the rosewood. Strats have some of the most amazing fretboards I've seen. The rosewood is always tight and ultra smooth, perfect grain, even on my MIC Squire. The rosewood is also my biggest complaint on Ibanez guitars. Love em, but I was spoiled having a strat first, and the Ibbys are no comparison, even on the nicer models. Might have something to do w/ the fact they are built on different ends of the globe...
I'd also like to try a JS
, I'm searching for the most strat-like Ibanez neck I can find :P and the JS
seems like a good shot: 6105 frets, tight radius, etc.
Edit: After reading jem7vhw's post, I gotta say that strats can do shred as good as any. Of all my guitars, Im fastest on my strat, no lie. I know Chris Impelitterri(!) will back me on this, he plays completely stock strats all the time, including on some instuctional vids.
