Very cool man...if I was in the market for a strat, it'd probably be this one.

Did you buy it new?

Nice guitar, and a nice addition to the family!

That fearsome foursome shows you have taste...and $$$!

Congratulations! I had a very brief opportunity to compare this model (used) vs. the Select Series Strat last year, but the EJ was gone when I returned so I bought the Select by default. There are a LOT of similarities between the two models, and I was torn. The used EJ had a couple of problems though, and I don't like ordering guitars on-line unless it's a specialty model that can't be had any other way. To this day, I consider it a bit of a coin toss-up between the EJ Maple and the Maple Select. The models aren't the same but are more similar than different, and more similar to each other than to any other Strats. I personally think the red EJ looks the best. :-)

Real real nice!
I have said before I`m not interested in selling any guitars but, I`m seriously considering selling my LP and getting a Strat. Love the LP too but I`ve got a herd of humbuckers.

Considered culling the herd? It will always be cool to have an LP and a Strat...

If I ever get the urge to buy another Strat - this would be the model. I've heard really good things about the EJ Strat.
Nice addition to the flock!
