skipclone 1 Posted January 21, 2004 Share Posted January 21, 2004 recently, in shopping for a new guitar, I played over half a dozen Fender Japan strats, including several solid-walnut body models that were really beautiful. I really wanted to like them. But I couldn`t deal with the neck, especially on the upper frets. I don`t remember noticing this on U.S.A. made strats, but since the neck is radial but neither the nut nor the bridge are, it effectively raises the strings away from the fretboard. One of my pet peeves is high strings- I couldn`t deal with the way they played. I tried at least three different models, they all had the same problem. Is this just a bad setup from the factory, or are strat players used to it? Same old surprises, brand new cliches- Skipsounds on Soundclick: www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandid=602491 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
