Best we get Mark's opinion. I am so far out of the loop as to be of no help I'm afraid

If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

The bass player whom I play with raves about his friend's EC Strat. I'm not sure how old it is, as I think there are some minor variations.

What he does rave about are the noiseless pickups, and the mid boost.

Granted, I've never seen or played one, so I'm only going by his opinion. He is a tone junkie, so I bet he's spot on. I'd like to try one because I'm a fan of '50s V shaped necks.
