    SE EG Love

    Picked up a 2003 SE EG SSS stoptail, white on tortie last month for under $300. I absolutely LOVE this damn thing. Haven't had a strat-like guitar for a long time...I'm not a tinkerer, but my friend who is said that it's stock except for 500K pots, along with a really bad job soldering those pots in. I think it's got a bit of a grounding issue, but other than a bit of noise, LOVE it. Light, really good highs and decent sustain, nice chunky wide fat so it feels just like my other SEs.

    Anyone else have one? Anyone have one with either HSS, trem or both...care to compare?

    I might take you up on that - is the red one stoptail or trem? SSS? Would love another white stoptail too...

    Really need to get my stoptail looked at...aside from the noise difference between the two, which is significant, the trem one is alot louder and just sounds better - and I haven't even changed the strings yet. You're right about the weight - you notice the extra weight of the trem immediately.
