    I'd wait until Guitar Center blows them out in a few months.

    I like it, it would be better with a Cabronita style half guard. That curve on the upper side looks lumpy and wrong.

    They've managed to transform a standout guitar into something very ordinary looking.

    Why not? We dig double cutaways on other guitars. But I think it needs one more thing. Just a double cutaway isn't enough. But what?

    I would've suggested an offset.

    If I ever decided to let Fender call that mess a Telecaster, I'd hate it.

  10. It's probably a great guitar but it just isn't right.:eek:

    Who were they trying to appeal to......Strat people? Really though it's just not for me.
