I picked up a poor, neglected Johnson strat copy from a pawn shop a couple of days ago. The had it marked down from $79 to $39. I made a stupid offer of $10 and he said yes! The majority of these cheap Johnson strat copies I've seen have all had one of two headstock shapes.....both ugly! This one has a 'real' strat headstocj shape. Got it cleaned up and restrung. I must say, I'm pretty surprised how well it plays. The neck is very comfortable and it plays and intonates very well. I have yet to open it up and check out the pups and electronics, but as is, it doesn't sound too bad at all. Bluesy neck pup and it's quite stratty in the notch positions. I bought it with the intention of giving it away to someone in need. I do not need another guitar and already have my lifetime strat....but this darn piece of crap is so much fun to play, I just may hang on to it for a while. I love it when a cheap guitar surprises and sounds and plays much better than it should. It already crossed my mind to change out the pickups, pots, switch, etc......and I may do that when I give it away, but for now I'll leave it as is and enjoy it for what it is.
