A strat for life!

Harald769, 08.02.2015
I have the EJ-Strat now since 2007 (!) And can now give the following conclusion:
The EJ Strat is basically a very good reproduction of a 57er Strat. And I would even say of the processing and the choice of the excellent sounding woods (maple neck with light Erlekorpus) is this artist Serienstratocaster on Fender Custom Shop level - only slightly cheaper (at that time in 2007).

1. The neck: a Soft V-shape maple neck, which transitions into a C shape from the 12th fret. Exactly the right thickness and the right wood for a crisp and dynamic sound. Due to the rather rare 12 "radius, the neck is also very easy to play, Bendings can be played smoothly.

2. Body and Tremolosystem: The strat is incredibly light, but with the light-weight body of the body and the associated vintage orientation in every sound layer, it transmits every nuance of what the guitarist can elicit from his fingers. The Tremolo is perfectly matched to the Strat. If you like it more rocky, leave it at the five tremolo feathers and fix the block. If you are looking for a more dynamic and more broad-spectrum sound with an almost "reverb-like" sound, the Vintage Tremolo provides three springs. The thin nitro-lacquer, with regular (but not excessive) playing, makes it very fast to have its own soft or heavy-relic strat. If you want to get the EJ-Strat without quirks, you should lock it into the showcase. But it is too bad for that. She wants to be played. Best day ever.

3. Mechanics and saddles: The machine heads are also vintage-oriented and graded in such a way that they have saved themselves string-holders. In conjunction with the genuine bone saddle, this strat is almost invariably detuned.

4. Pickup: This was the only weak point from my perspective, but it is very subjective. For others, these are exactly the dream of a perfect Strat sound. The EJ-Strat has specially wrapped PU for Eric Johnson. At the neck a FAT 50-like PU, but with less pressure. In the middle of a 60's PU with less bell-like heights and on the bridge a PU designed in the direction "overwound". These Fender PUs are not in free trade - just buy with this Strat. But that is the problem. The PUs sound rather boring for my ears. It was missing the typical Fender Twäng, the bridge-PU was much too thin in the Blues-Rock-Metier. I lacked dynamism in the entire spectrum of sounds. After that I had many Fender PUs (Noiseless, Lace Sensor, CS 69, Texas Special, David Gilmour Set with FAT 50 - CS 69 - SSL 5). No one really convinced me. The Texas Special was the longest, but the Strat produced a too strong Mittenase. And he Steg-PU developed to harsh highs, while the Neck-PU quickly matted. Now I have the Kloppmann Real 65 set built. And it is a dream. These PUs fit perfectly to this strat and make them really lively. The sound is clean, crunch, lead and overdrive pedal (Rodenberg GAS 909) always defined, the Saitentennung perceptible and audible and everything works properly round and has much pressure - without harsh heights. The play of my fingers and the character of the EJ-Strat are perfectly illustrated (depending on the amp). Since I mainly work with a good cleansound and pedals, and regulate the gain settings by volume potentiometer, I had dynamic PUs that do not equal, but "open" when the volume potenti is turned down.


Conclusion: For me in this strat, in connection with the Kloppmann Real 65 PUs, I have found the Holy Grail, which many Stratomanen are looking for their lives (some in sinfully expensive original copies from the 50s and 60s in the value of a middle class car). A perfect instrument with addiction factor. There are good, very good and superior Fender Strats. This one belongs to the latter category.

Addendum: After a whole year with the Kloppmann PUs Real 65 I bought - because I was so stupid to sell my original PUs - again a set of Fender Eric Johnson PUs bought because I with the Kloppis in connection with my EJ-Strat But not so completely satisfied. I revise my opinion about the pickup express!

... and what happened after the conversion?
The sound re-entered immediately! The dynamics are back. The volume potenti works again as what I had always used: as a sound palette from clean to crunch and high gain. The EJ-Strat with its own PUs is much easier to elicit a good sound. The sharp heights are completely gone, the mud of the Neck PU from Kloppmann also. Everything sounds round again ... I would even say more musical. For the Kloppmann PUs, I had to work harder with my fingers for a dynamic sound. Well, Fender can do it and I feel a bit self-lazy because I had to recognize eight years and six pickup sets later, which is 100% to my style and sound: this strat with its wonderful and unique pickups.
Only the tremolo had to go out after almost 9 years and some wear and has given way to an excellent ABM 5050S vintage tremolo.

I stick with it: a strat for life. All the more so with the original EJ-PUs.

Excellent guitar

Juan5830, 18.08.2014
It was my first strato, 7 years ago. An exceptional instrument. Excellent construction. It fits fantastically to the body. Magnificent sound (style 50's). Tunes in and tunes perfectly. You can save it for 2 months and when you play it again, perfect! You can play it for hours and hours and perfect! In the section of tone, a hit the tone isolated for the pickup of the bridge. Even if you do not like Eric Johnson, we're talking about a fabulous instrument. A bargain.
