After many years of playing strats and not really finding what i wanted I finally had a S-style Guitar custom made, A Smitty Custom Guitar made by Eric Smid Luthier in the netherlands. I have been lucky to have Custom shop Fenders, Nash guitars, Suhr, Andersons and this best guitar i have played bar none. I found out about Smitty guitars from Brett Kingman on youtube and was lucky enough to play one of his standard builds.. Mine is a Sonic Blue nitro finish.. slight relic with aged parts Museum grade/ Highest grade flame maple neck/ rosewood board with a compound radius 7.25" - 10" neck. Klusons Amber Holy Grail 50s Pickups The fit and finish is astounding. Eric makes only a very small amount of guitars and he charges only the same amount as a fender deluxe strat. If you dont care about the F-name on the headstock i would seriously recommend checking Smitty guitars out.
