    We had ten minutes until my friend's mom returned from her job at the bakery, so we opened the garage door and peered out through the viet nam era cloud billowing from the garage, which had just enough room for the mint orange 320i and the three of us. Now it was time to put on dark side while laying on our backs, with the lights out.

    As the smoke cleared, and rolled toward the street, a huge police car, a Plymouth Fury, crawled past the driveway entrance, seemingly materializing from thin air, in white and lime green with red accents prominent on the logo. How could anything move so slow? We were equally amazed that the car did not stop...beginner's luck.

    A few minutes later, a 73 spitfire in rust and primer, every fender a differnt color, puttered by grinding gears with
    "we're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl" sprayed on the passenger side, and blasting dark side through
    Jensen's, the best speakers ever made. Period. All I could wonder was how in hell did a late model car get so blasted out?
    The car circled the block about twenty times, like an omen, or an angel...now, none of us wondered if it was working.

    Maybe get a time machine.

    I have one of that Vintage Modified 70’s Strats and much to my surprise it is one of my best playing guitars!

    Have a choice of VM70 maple fretboard, I'm afraid maple FB will not be as smooth as my LP100's rosewood FB.

    You need 22 frets for the major solos. I like my Clapton strat for PF.

    Is it the shortcoming of the App? or I have not put it up properly?

    I don't think I'm understanding your concern- the maple's finished- pretty much smooth as glass.

    L'il bit, but not as hot as the ceramics.

    Again- any of these guitars will get you started- you might be over-thinking this a little.

    I mean finger sticking issues while bending etc. I've seen this issue all over the internet that maple fret boards offer more friction to your fingers.

    Gear is only a small part of the equation

    I've heard complaints about the gloss finish on the back of the neck getting sticky, but the fingerboard???

    I've never experienced that, and I got my first maple 'board in 1975.

    Seems to me, in all honesty, like a pretty contrived internet concern.

    The gear is much more important than the guitar in this case. Without the ability to approximate his rig, you're not even gonna get close. That said, I think the VM 70's would get you the closest.

    Change so you can vote for all of them, then you'll see the vote count go up. Because...all of them will do what you want. Just pick the one you like. :D

    You don't need 22 frets. Just bend the 21st more.

    How about a used Roadhouse/Powerhouse strat? I would go with the CV or the MIM. But I'd play as many different guitars of those models as I possibly could, until my eyebrows perk up and my face contorts (think bitter beer face), then I'd know which one to buy.

    Hey another option is a Jackson SL3
