I once owned this one in Dakota red.
Great guitar, you did good
Played a couple in stores when they first came out way back when, and thought ew. Sticky and stiff.
Played a new rosewood one in a local store a couple of weeks ago and loved it. Perhaps I'm wishy-washy.
Took a chance on a used, 2020 2TSB Maple fretboard last week on Reverb.com for a good price, and I'm loving it.
Bought it with a fresh pro setup, floating tremolo, which seems to have countered all of the stiffness I originally perceived.
Just like a-ringin' a bell ...
They sure look nice!
Thanks for the input. Ill just have to get her in and play her tomorrow. I heard the sticky necks were the early runs. Ill pay attention to the strings being close to the edges of the board. Hope it isent a 4 or 5pm drop off like usual..... lol
Nice is the tele daphne? Looks too light for sonic.
Yes, Tele is 2019 Daphne Blue Two Tone Tele. Ebony board. That thing is just dreamy. Fastest I've ever EVER bought a guitar, 7 days from the time I saw the model to having one in the house. Mrs still can't believe that happened. Ebony from Fedner doesn't happen often!
Nice only ebony i have is a G&l s500
Best guitar fender makes. I have owned the original maple board model, the same color rosewood model you got and the Thinline model.
I owned a lot of Strats and have a thing for the one with 12" radius fingerboards. I had Classic Player 60:s, Custom Shops and at least 5 EJ:s. I sold everyone except 2 of the EJ:s which is my favorite of all the standard strats i tried. Very well built and sounds absolutely great for my taste. I have had one issue with some of them and that is the high or/and low E can roll of the fingerboard to easy. Vintage bridge and a too narrow neck för that is what is causing the problem. On one of my keepers i changed the bridge to a Gotoh with a bit narrower string space and that solves the problem. So try them before you buy them or prepare yourself for a change of the bridge. Then of course they can benefit from fretleveling and polish but thats the same for most of the factory made guitars.
So far i have noticed the spacing issue. Isent killing me but i may get a different bridge at some point if i cannot get used to it.
And the 12" radius is great, i dodent think i would like it on a strat. Very familiar since i came from Gibsons. Fretwork is great, ends arent 100% could use a tiny touch with a fret file but nothing to stress my x2 MIMs are way worse.
Congratulation on getting a great guitar. I got one 2 years ago and I absolutely love it. The V is a very soft V; you'll likely not even notice it. The neck pickup is amazing. As far as the E string rolling off the edge, it's never happened to me; not even once.
I like it a lot. Doesn't the EJ come with a guartersawn neck and a atraight 12" radius. I was checking them out at one time but I can't recall the specs. Looks great brother. Congratulations.
Yessir quartersawn neck. 12" radius bug chunky not even a V, V neck.
Yeah mine isn't a V at all.
I will buy the EJ maple neck from you. Seriously, I’m doing a build and would love to have it. PMd
One of the best guitars you can buy.
I love my rosewood EJ, but I never could bond with the pickups. Dropped in some Lace sensors and I couldn't be happier with it!
