    EJ’s are IMO the best Strats Fender makes. Mine are as good or better than the two custom shops I have owned.

    I've been wanting to try out one of those strats. I always read good things about them. Happy new guitar day!

    They are definitely larger and fatter and are a soft V vs a C shape. Also they are a 12 inch radius fretboard. After playing my first one for several months I sold my Am STD Strat and Classic Vibe Tele because the necks felt to thin and I could not get along with them anymore.

    Well I hope your satisfied...

    Tomorrow evening I’m going to look at a nearly identical 2012 sibling to yours.

    When I saw yours (now that I have a pair of really quite decent Strats), I thought to myself the only Strat I’d be interested in buying is an EJ Strat and they never seem to come up. Next thing I know, a nice EJ Strat shows up on Craigslist, at the exact price that I think is reasonable in my market.

    I’ve only seen a few photos but it looks pretty flawless and was set up by a luthier I know so barring anything extraordinary, it’ll probably be coming home with me tomorrow night.
