    image.jpeg I bought a shell pink strat body from them. Finish and fit were good, the color was a little darker than the eBay photo.

    Thank you for the reply, what kind of neck did you use? I have a MIM Std neck and a Fender Trem bridge. Beautiful Strat by the way...

    image.jpeg I originally had a Charvel neck from an 80's MIJ on it. Then it had a MIM strat neck, both fit perfect. The neck on it now is a mystery tele style neck with a strat heel.The bridge is a mexi standard.

    Did you buy an Alder or Paulownia body? Looks like you have a Fender bridge on your Strat, yes? Good fit Also?

    It was advertised as alder. Definently not paulownia. I have a few of those from GFS, they are very light,soft,and ding easy. This one is around 6 lbs.

    If I buy from them, I will go with Alder. In your opinion, which is better quality, GFS or Eden Guitars?

    I've only bought one Eden body and it was very good quality. GFS XGP bodies are equal in my opinion, but reviews by others are mixed.

    I've been looking at them as well. Might bite soon for one of my 'Bullet Special' builds.

    Look at their guitar cases too, I have a few and they are inexpensive and good quality.

    Now that I see @Luvs2yoko 's body from Eden Guitars, I notice the contouring and horn shapes aren't quite right, it would bother me.....it's not Fender Strat shaped exactly....

    About the horns, what are the differences you see?

    I heard there are mixed reviews from a friend. He said they are great but there have been some that where off like the body moved in the CNC machine and things where shifted out of line. I'm not sure that is a common issue. I would take a chance anyway. Was thinking about it but I dont need another Strat rite now at all

    The lower horn is too wide around the U shaped part where the pickguard hugs it, the bottom side of the body coming off the lower horn is too big - more body showing than should be there. It's slightly too wide. The top horn is too short and too wide looking and 'off' to my eyes big time. The forearm contour is too shallow. The transition from top horn also to the neck pocket is too big...it looks like a cheapo knockoff Squier-type guitar made by another company, you know the ones who don't get the shape right....

    I just read on their ebay store and on their website, that you cannot return an item if you're in Canada or outside the US.
    So I won't buy from them...
