This is my #1 at the moment. This thing will sing or chime and anything in between using the right amp/pedals. Not for everyone as the neck is V shaped, quite narrow and has tiny vintage frets.

what a beautiful sounding and playing guitar. I am a huge Gibson fan but this guitar has made me a fender lover as well. I had a 2008 Strat Standard and the two can't compare in my opinion, other than the maple necks on a strat are remarkable.

Ok. I never thought I would buy a signature guitar but then I plugged this one in and fell in love with it immediately. The Fender Noiseless pickups have amazing clear tones with enough output to play any venue. I'm also fan of the mid-range boost which you'll find in the middle tone control. In my opinion, Fender hit a home run with this model based on Eric's setup. This guitar on a Fender Twin is as close to heaven as you will hear on earth. You don't have to keep the trem blocked neither, I didn't. The only negative comment I can make about this guitar is the 1-ply pickguard. Some may want something more sturdy. But hey, it's good enough for Eric Clapton so unless you're jamming with him, you should be able to live with it.
