    You cannot play doom-metal with a guitar looking that gaudy....

    Not a fan of those vertical (?) neck to butt of the guitar finish color changes. I don't care which manufacturer does it...those are just weird to me.

    I saw these on the Sweetwater site this morning, and after checking out the lineup, I was left unimpressed, especially for the price they wanted.

    Seem like a pretty cool guitar. Not a fan of the color schemes they chose.

    Everyone who has ever worked in a music store knows that green guitars don’t sell;)

    About time Fender tried something new with their finishes.
    They've been very boring for decades.
    I see they've only done it on a few though - the rest are as ho hum as usual :D

    Think about what a challenge it must be to work in the Fender marketing department and have some empathy:

    You go into a department meeting and get the same remit each and every year from 'the boss': "OK--I need you all to come up with new ways to sell the Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision and Jazz Bass as a new unique product to anything that we've ever offered before....but it still has to be exactly the same as every Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision and Jazz Bass as we've offered for 60-70 years".

    The best part is it will be the same remit from now till the end of guitar and bass sales. For my part I'd like to see more of the bowling ball finishes that I remember in shop windows in the early 80s when I first got my awareness.

    I don't hate some of the finishes, they seem like a cool new thing and the extra specs are cool, but the price... it's listed around the same as an American performer and about $500 more then what I could pick up an excellent condition American standard/special.

    On the positive I bet the meetings are on the short side.

    I do like this PRS forum a lot. But does anybody know if a Gretsch forum exists somewhere? :D

    Not if they have junior executives who graduated from university in the last 3 years who tend to have to make themselves heard.

    Yes agree....
    I'm happy to see Fender try anything different.... except bump up prices just cos something has a different colour

    My response to you received a first in my 11 years and 1000 posts on this site. Here is the screenshot. I'd be interested to hear why this post was suspended.
