    Too cool to hear so many people wishing to own one like I do!

    Indeed... Would be cool if you could play as fast as YJM just by grabbing one!

    For me, I don't see this as a drawback, as I always wanted to own a Strat to have a guitar will single coils, to get that special Strat tone.

      I have an 89 Rhoads that's factory scalloped from the 12-22 frets. I really don't notice a huge difference compared to non-scalloped really. I did try a YJM Strat in a store once and the scallops on it were quite deep. In fact to the point that I think it hindered my playing rather than helped it.
