    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.

    That is a beautiful guitar. Glad you finally found one that spoke to you.

    Thank you. I have played so few that i have thought "this is a guitar for life" and this is one of them. Even after the usual honeymoon period of new gear had worn off this one has kept on getting better

    After 5 years, may I resurrect this thread and say that I agree entirely with this post. I now have 2 of Eric's great guitars. They are, in my view, the finest strats on the planet.

    I would challenge anyone to find me a finer strat than a Smitty custom classic.

    Just my £0.02.

    That is all.
