Other Guitars

So it turns out “a breakthrough in modern guitar-making” is coming.

Oh goody, I'll put the kettle on. Tea anyone?

3

Haha, meanwhile I'm over here looking at buying a Classic 50's Telecaster because I want it old-school.

4

If I give them my email address will I live to regret it?

5

thank gawed I wont be buying anything that resembles a strat.. let alone blue metallic. :)

6

Great...the new age of superstrats is upon us....again.

7

In the opening intro video, lovely blue sparkle but it's on another ho-hum Fender plank.

8

It’s Robo-tune.

9

NIce blue sparkle, kinda makes me a gass-ey for a Blue Sparkle Strat, esp as how I sold my tobacco-burst one just a year back.

But a hint of what's coming would be nicer....

Otherwise, it's just a blue Strat, albeit one with a teaser vid Elon Musk would be proud of.

10

It's got a cool neck plate, I'll give it that.

13

I was just playing the ole strat after dinner tonight! I've got a gudun, how much better can they get? At some point, you just don't mess with perfection. I hope they're not going down the robo tuner road!

14

I suppose you have to wow the market with something?

15

"Oh goody, I'll put the kettle on."

The perfect response. I think we'll all need a nice cuppa.

16

Whatever it is I don't like the look of it.

17

Much ado about nothing.... EXCEPT for that awesome new neck heel! Bravo!!! All guitars should have this kind of "easier" access neck heel... it's not even a new thing, Fender was doing it with custom shops and sig models back in the early 90s...

And I dig the metallic finishes.... but Fender HAS done those over the years... I'd actually really dig that metallic blue strat (color)

Hopefully Fender will learn from Gibson what NOT to do

That definitely needs saying 5 times

24

Plus 1 with Ruger above. Nice heel and color.

25

Good grief, what is with all the pessimism?

You guys are all just mad you have to get rid of your old junk and start buying all over again.

Start pricing your garage gear. It's all "mediocre" anyway!
