    Used 2016 model. Looks to be in excellent condition judging from the photos. Looking forward to getting it and having both a Les Paul and a Stratocaster. Scalloping will make bending easier.

    I know you have had a number of YJM's in the past, but have you had a Blackmore?

    I found the neck quite different, and not just the scallop shape and depth.

    To my recollection I think I've had two Blackmore Strats many years ago.

    Hope you can remember the classic SotW riff!

    All my years having him as a musical idol and I've never played his signature model. Made a few 'tributes' without scalloping but never seen a Factory Blackmore in a store to try.

    I really must rectify that.

    I hope pictures will follow in due course once it's with you......
