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?
