    He is a tailor as good as

    Hello,

    *self-made*

    1) He is as good a tailor as I am.
    1.a) He is a tailor as good as I am.

    2) He is not so good a tailor as I am.
    2.a) He is not a tailor so good as I am.

    I think sentences 1 and 2 sound OK but I am not sure if sentences 1.a and 2.a are OK or not.

    Thanks.
