The local GC has listed a used Vintera 50's Strat in Sonic Blue and in excellent condition for $694. I went to check it out and it was very nice, a couple scuff marks on the body, but nothing that couldn't be buffed out. I was about to buy it when I noticed it only had 21 frets. I put it back on the rack and left. What is your preference? does it matter? I have guitars with both, but prefer 22 frets for soloing.
