    John Higgins did a wonderful STL Fret Job on my Fever Strat a while back.

    They're fun to use when no one's looking, but I never want to set them up or change a string on one again.

    I know some pros still swear by them over Floyd’s but they always gave me the heebie-geebies with the trem arm attaching in between the b and e strings.

    I've been able to make peace with the narrow nut width on my EBMM Valentine. That is litterally the only niggle I have with the guitar. The feel and shape of the neck and that wonderful finish is just so good, I am willing to bend a little on the nut width.

    That pic takes me back to some good times. Still have a soft spot for melodic hard rock.

    Do you not like vintage style Fenders either, or is there something about the neck size/width combination that makes it feel smaller?

    They do feel super thin. I think the edges are rolled too which makes them feel even smaller. I had one for a minute but I couldn't get used to the neck.

    It's a shame because they're super high-quality instruments. Fit and finish is always excellent.

    I suppose if I want to try one out I'll have to order it through GC and return it if I don't like it. Seems like a lot of outlay just to try out a guitar. I don't think they'll have one shipped to the store just so I can try it out and not buy it.

    I had a Kurt Cobain Mustang that had a little tiny neck on it that was fine, but it was a bit of a transition from my other guitars. The scale length didn't help either.

    I'm not a huge fan of the small vintage Fender necks either. The neck on my 50s RW Tele is about perfect for me. Beefy enough even at the nut to feel substantial without being Gibson baseball bat thick.

    If you like vintage Fender necks, you probably won't have any issue with the EBMM ones.

    I recall many pages back some people were dissing the 5E3 tweed deluxe and its infinite clones. Why is that exactly? Because although it's clean headroom isn't the highest they sure seem to sound nice. Mind you I am basing this on my Eleven Rack model of it but the interwebs sounds good too. Very workable with the volume knob and tone knob on the esquire. Sounds good getting hit with a Zvex SHO or a fuzz. Sounds good with delay and trem.

    Whattamatta 5E3?

    School a mofo.

    That's nice. I recall haiku with fondness. Alas I have moved on to performance art.
