Honestly I'm kinda planning to go that route already, but in a different way... I was thinking I'd get the classic vibe, order a neck from warmoth with a 12" radius and SS Medium Jumbos (cause at this point eff jumbos I'm so over them) and bob's my uncle, you know? lol I figure that would be cheaper than buying a custom body, electronics, and hardware separately, and what matters most to me is the playability and durability of the frets/neck. I'm fine with whatever pickups are in the CV Squier, my tone mostly comes from my amp anyway and pickups are easy to upgrade. The only wood that matters to me is the neck wood. On lead and dirty channels, the tone is very similar. On clean channels, my Squier Affinity is louder because the pickups are stronger but the character is not terribly different. I just literally do not understand how it is remotely possible for everybody to say that jumbos are easier to play when the exact opposite is true in my experience. Maybe EJ strats just don't like jumbos? I can't understand it honestly. And in case anybody is wondering, it's not that the strings are too easy to press out of tune, it's the exact opposite problem; it is barely even playable (can hardly fret or bend) and that's coming from somebody who... Well, if anybody's curious what I'm capable of with a well-playing guitar (Back from when my EJ had medium jumbos)... Bondi James Live At Joe's Garage - Groovalicious (Guitar Solo) - YouTube I'm not a ****ty guitarist, at least I hope not. But the fact is that I can't play all this stuff with ease since I went for 6100s on my strat and I think the whole 6100s thing is a total scam. They all say "oh, it lets you use a lighter touch"... But that seems to be completely false. Otherwise, how would it be possible that I take my guitar with my new neck to multiple techs (who get GREAT reviews!) and none of them can set it up to play as easily as the guitar played before with the smaller medium jumbos that came with the guitar originally? Never should've sold that neck in the first place, but I didn't want to keep it due to depreciation over time as it was played, consequence of wear on the nickel silver frets. I thought that a good setup would fix whatever playability issues I had with my new jumbo-fretted neck, but obviously I was wrong. And before you ask, it's not cause I am (or ever was) out of practice haha, even with this thing fighting me tooth and nail I can't stop playing guitar every day. If you've ever heard someone compare strings to cheese-cutters... Yeah, that's what it started to feel like after I got the new neck. And no matter what I try, it won't go away. So I guess it's just a thing with jumbo frets. I can't explain why other people say jumbos are easier to play on and let them use a lighter touch. Medium jumbos, maybe, but apparently true jumbos make things infinitely more difficult. This is consistent across two necks I tried on my EJ with true jumbos; one that was quartersawn and roasted, one that was simply riftsawn which I still have. Thought it might've been the wood, but obviously not because they are both equally difficult to play on.
