    yea yea, I know there are a bazillion threads already, but I just got mine finally set up with a calaham bridge & saddles and got to play it LOUD(er) for the first time. Damn, what a fine guitar I have on my hands.

    Was thinking of trading it a few weeks ago because I thought the neck was going to be a problem. I've been playing a 95 strat plus (modern radius) for the past 15 yrs, so this has been a pretty big change for me.

    Played it with some old band mates yesterday a good 3 hrs straight and NO hand cramps or anything. I think I'm in love:drool

    side note: I was playing it thru a Tone Monk seed of life into a fender prosonic. The TM is a keeper.

    I love the Nocaster neck, too. What made you want to change out the Fender bridge? Better intonation with Callaham saddles?

    Yes, that and it just rings out in a more musical way..imo. The action seemes to be better also. It was feeling a bit stiff with the nocaster pat-pend bridge that came on it. The calaham is a great product, and Bill was great to deal with.
