I don't think you're going to find a used EJ strat for quite some time, and Rich has said he doesn't have time to set up guitars that he did not sell. He is too busy.sniperfrommars1 said:From what i can see Rich puts more work than the average tech is capable of anyways. I mean jesus looks at his tutorials. they are the BEST ive ever seen and I live for this kind of stuff, so its just a testament to his work, and Ive never even bought anything from the guy. Maybe you could see if Rich would pickup a fender for you used and do the setup? Not sure how interested he is in doing something like this though
So when are you opening a fenderrules.com subsidiary? :lol:Rich said:>>Rich has said he doesn't have time to set up guitars that he did not sell. He is too busy.
>>Correct me if I'm wrong Rich, but that's the last I heard.
Not even if it was an Ibanez

I heard this strat live last weekend and it sounds sweet. Then again, wouldn't he have sounded good even with "Virginia" or his ES-335?.Jemwielder said:i've heard nothing but good things about the eric johnson strat, personally i think having a humbucker in the bridge may rob the guitar of some of it's tonal nuances, i think as far as pure balls out strat tone is concerned this is the axe to get, if you're looking to mod a strat i'd recomend just a regualar american strat and go nuts. This guitar is specifically tailored to sound like EJs old `54. We're talking holy grail here dude. You shouldn't need to do much to it out of the box other than tune that bad boy up.
No its the 57. His 54 (Virginia) was made of spruce, his 57 alder. Since this is alder trust me, its the 57.Flobanez said:
