Yeah, becuase Buckethead is like 6' 8" and his hands are bigger than George Lopez's head.

sorry, I couldn't resist



I'll have to admit, until I played this one, I was never a fender fan, but this beauty converted me rather quickly. The best part was my local guitar store was selling it for $1400 brand new instead of the $2300 it costs on musician's friend. She is by far the best guitar I've ever played and hopefully will appease my GAS... at least for now.

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

I love that finish. Beautiful. HNGD
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

It sounds very nice, I would post clips, but I'd have to do it through my crappy laptop mic, which really wouldn't be worth it. The guy at the music store said he wouldn't open any of the case candy and I should keep the hang tags as well. Is that good advice? I'd kind of like to use the trem... Also does anyone have any advice for taking care of the nitro finish? Thanks

*Edit*
She handles distortion a lot better than I would have thought, with just a bit of hum. That being said, played clean with a touch of reverb makes me cream my pants every time.

The Gibson Cleaning Kit, available everywhere, is perfect for Nitro, since Nitro is standard for Gibson guitars. I've used it forever on my Fender Highway One Strat and Tele, too.

Does anyone have any thought's about keeping the case candy sealed though?

#24
nice guitar, really cool. congrats

don't leave it leaning on rubber / padded stand, unless you've got a guitar cloth protecting the finish.


and it's set up like a mexican strat. probably a little hard to use the trem.
not a big deal, just saying.

It plays really, really well. The only two downsides are that the high e string is a bit close to the edge of the fretboard, so it kind of makes tapping a bit more of challenge, and also the neck is a kind of sticky; however that is wearing off. Aside from that it plays like a dream.
On a side note, in what way is the trem set up like a mim?

That's great to hear, I have my shredder guitars as it is and I rarely tap when I'm playing my bluesy rock stuff which I use my strats for anyway.
And I think by set up like an MIM she means that the bridge is flat against the body rather than slightly floating, though this is Eric Johnson's spec over the MIM set-up for this model.
#31
Bridge should be flat against the body and not floating, that's the best way

Beautiful guitar by the way! At first I thought you got the American Vintage '57 model which is my all time favourite, I muttered the words lucky c*nt but its ok, its only an EJ Strat

^ Actually, the guitar store had one of those too for $100 more than the EJ I think he was just getting tired of his high end fenders not selling.

HAha ^

yeah, i mean usually with an american strat you can get away with balancing the bridge with 3 springs and a slight lift.

but you know, what ever floats your boat.

I know your reference, I've had several discussions with Ippon. The symbol is a representation of Kokopelli, deity of fertility in the south seas, usually represented as a flute player.
