    I would definitely look into one, especially since my EJ was stolen and I prefer rosewood to maple fingerboards.

    I hope they don't do the binding though, it just looks weird on a strat (IMO).

    I personally love the look of that binding on the neck !!

    would totaly set the EJ apart from all the other strats out there.

    Peace

    I agree, plus I've had problems with binding on other guitar necks.

    Looks like I may very well "need" another Stratocaster...but if Fender's going to do the bound fingerboard, they should also do the big headstock...like Ry Cooder's 1966 example here:

    I'd buy THAT in a heartbeat.

    Watched most of those clips today. That dude kills me, he can hear the difference of his strats with the back cover off and on, what a curse!

    I like that strat, but not the bound fret board. Too bling for my taste.:D

    Frets are just too small for me on the EJ Strat. I love the Mayer Strat though. I have an Oly White one that just kills!
