    I see who bought all of Gibson's Tune-O-Matic bridges.

    It would look better semi-transparent -- some grain would be nice.

    More Crapocasters and yet still no hot rod Tele. For the love of Keef.

    I feel like some of you are stuck in the prison of tradition. If things were always kept traditional. There’s be no electric instruments at all!

    I'm sure folks feel that progress was made, until 1952.

    except FMIC is just recycling traditional bits

    that's not innovation, that's Hollywood recycling the same script

    it's like a bot in randomizer mode

    let's see some young guns with mad CAD skills and lunatic DSP wizards design new things with Leo's values!

    Now, that (Gretsch Candy Orange) is purty...even edge binding...but that pickguard would immediately get changed...for me.

    That’s partly why I like Reverend guitars so much as well. Original concepts!

    Leo and his pals were looking at cars and using French curves.

    Most of our cars today visually suck by comparison.

    The opportunity is ripe for the electric guitar to take a quantum leap.

    Any idea what the cost will be? They're listed at £1600 in the UK... soooo, $2K US?

    If so, I'm out, especially since so many of them look like parts-dump guitars.

    Fender competes not only with other manufacturers, but also with the thousands of good quality resales out there. It looks like the sleeping giant may have awoken. I see a few guitars here that I'd definitely like to check out. They look much more appealing than the new oddities shown by Gibson. I look forward to playing some of them. I hope the wide range humbuckers are more vintage sounding than what was offered last year. That would really raise my interest.

    Let's see .. usually prices at this time of year are much higher than what they end up as after hitting the stores :)
