    Went to the local music emporium today to look at an AVRI 57 that they’d recently taken in, and as much as I wanted to like it, it wasn’t the right deal on the right guitar for me - BUT - there was a brand new Eric Clapton Strat on the same wall...and I plugged that in on a whim.

    Despite some grubby and rough strings, it really played and sounded amazing, plugged it in and just couldn’t stop smiling!

    Had no intention of leaving there today with a Clapton Strat, but sure enough, it followed me home. Fresh strings and a couple of hours of playing time, and I’m convinced that I’ve found the right neck for me! That soft v fits my hand and my style just right, and the noiseless pickups and active electronics rock my world!

    The factory set up is actually better than many I’ve played, and it plays and sounds excellent!
