    Do D'pergo leave a small gap between neck and body bass side intentionally? It's something I see quite often with photos of them-are they all like that?
    I think it was Tyler(or maybe Suhr?)who did some research and concluded a too tight neck joint can be a barrier to resonance?
    I think elegant is the best word to describe those strats :BEER

    Hey, just curious: Do these sound like a traditional 'ol strat or something else.

    Hmmm no answer. It was a sincere question in-case people thought I was trolling :mob

    Biggest waste of money I've spent to date... My '04 American Deluxe Strat slays the D'Pergo on all fronts...

    (sold immediately after comparing D'Pergo to 4 different Strats)

    mine's a bit more crystalline, hifi sounding than the vintage strats i've played (and one i owned for about 10 years). really clear and even note separation even on the most dissonant of chords. more harmonic complexity and detail on the d'pergo. also a bit less aggressive sounding than the fenders. IMO all these things don't necessary make it better than an old strat, just different. (there are situations where i'd grab a vintage strat and others where i'd grab the d'pergo...). so i actually don't think it behooves anyone to compare it to an old strat. it's better to just appreciate it as the incredible instrument it is...

    That lefty green rosewood one is breathtaking. Phew! These are positively the most elegant strats in my eyes.

    No, it's tight. The edge kinda rolls away at the top.

    SirM-I think I have the red D'Pergo you wasted money on. Harsh words but to each his own.
    I 've owned loads of guitars (acoustics and electrics) that didn't do it for me but others thought they were the greatest guitars ever.
    Sometimes I gotta ask myself if its my ears or whats between them that digs a guitar.
    Anyway thanks for posting a picture of my guitar.

    No sweat... I really wanted to like the Dpergo... considering the cost, alas, I couldn't. I hope you love it. It deserves a good home, and you sound to me like the man.... best of luck.

    Law of diminishing returns?

    Beautiful guitars all round, btw. Why so few RW necks, though?

    I got mine before they came with the brochure photos (I guess)...so my photo will have to do. No money wasted here:
