Beautiful, solid, gets the job done

I moved temporarily overseas and left my guitars in storage, but soon found I had to have one around the house. I had only had super strats before, but now desired something simple and reliable, no tremolo to be able to quickly switch tunings & a bit metal. I found the EC-256 to be exactly what I was looking for. I was initially thrown off a bit by how much fatter the neck is at the headstock than my old Jackson, but I quickly got used to it.

I need to dock one star from quality since there is a very slight rough patch at the edge of the fretboard on the low E string right next to the nut. It's more of a cosmetic problem than anything else since I at least never keep my thumb there. Other than that I am very satisfied with everything.
