My EJ Strat finally showed up UPDATE PICS

Well it's been 5 months but I finally got her today. So far it's love but I haven't gotten to really play her yet. Sorry for the lame pointless post but I'm very excited.

Re: My EJ Strat finally showed up

Curious that there do not seem to be screw holes for the rear trem cover - is this the case, or is it just the photo? Nitro finishes are superb - they really should be mandatory for all guitars (except they wear - and lots of guys here seem to be obsessed with pristine instruments....) - is it a really thin finish?

Wow, the finish on that guitar is really nice. I like the little things on it like no string trees or from the looks of it, no trem cover

Re: My EJ Strat finally showed up

No trem cover is included with it, at first that bummed me out, but then I realized I wouldn't want to drill any holes in the guitar so it doesn't matter if it came with or not.
It is a very thin finish, and I like the 5 springs and the bridge restnig on the body.
The neck is so great.
It's a 12" radius, starts out as a Soft "V" shape at the 1sr fret then becomes a large "C" shape at the 12th fret, and it has a real bone nut. My only complaint is it didn't come with strap locks when every other american strat does, but I can always put those on myself.

Re: My EJ Strat finally showed up

Nice guitar! Almost the only Fender I would like to get my hands on.

Besides, there's no trem cover because you soon will be using a Tremol-No.

Re: My EJ Strat finally showed up

This is easily the nicest playing guitar I've ever had, especially out of the box.
I never thought of throwing a treol-no on a strat style bridge, I thought those were more for floating trems, I think with the 5 screws and the bridge being onthe body it should be fine, but we'll see if one is needed.
