1 DCBirdMan 2 weeks ago Well I went with the red one and liked the neck slightly better. So this perfectly good blackie is the one to move on. Not many of these 22.5" scale guys around. So if you like the Strat scene but can't hack the 25.5" scale like me, there really aren't many options except this MiM model, a short lived 24" scale China-caster about 6 years ago, and Warmoth's 24" scale one but by the time you do electronics, hardware finish, etc you're up to 800 or so. Gig bag... $350 plus shipping.
