The neck on my Jimmie Vaughan strat is the most comfortable (for me) neck i've ever played. I love the soft V shape.
Can't tell you much about the electronics because mine has EMG single coils in it.
Get the JV!!!

The Jimmie Vaughan for sure.. Unpack it, have a setup done, and it's 'gig ready'.... :cool:
It has very nice pickups, great neck with medium/jumbo frets, and Fender was even smart enough to install Schaller Strap Locks.
Only thing I did with mine was to install solid saddles (the GraphTech FerraGlide stainless steel units)... Some folks replace the single ply pickguard with a three ply unit, but I've never seen the need.

Both are very fine guitars (assuming you are talking the MIM versions). The JV may be a tad more versatile with the hotter pickups and the trem.
I recently played a straight-from-Ensenada Robert Cray MIM that was hanging on the wall of a little music shop in Iowa, and I was just slackjawed at how well it played.

Robert Cray is a hardtail strat...i wouldn't take that.I am an EC fan...would rather 'block' the tremolo!
