    Omnidirectional finish? What in the actual heck is that? Does a Strat now offer the ability to alter light waves?

    Will it disappear and reappear mid solo?

    That's only $250 per month with the 0% 24 month financing!

    Makes me think of the genius of Navin R. Johnson and the 'Opti-Grab'.

    Oh, the morpho butterfly...
    Fender needs to do a tele based on something practical like the ‘05 Camry XLE.

    You could get a Pre CBS Fender for that, I've seen two Jaguars and several Duosonics, Musicmasters etc... For a lot less you could get something modern that is fantastic.

    I actually really like the styling overall. The laminate pick guard is cool. And the single V and T control. With the black hardware and can knobs. I don’t dig the co-branding and whoever buys it won’t be a guitar player but if that guitar was hanging on a shelf it would catch my eye.
    Just like the Fender record player threads, y’all act like Fender doesn’t know their market.

    I wonder what Leo would think of that. I don’t think of him as a Lexus kind of guy. According to the biography of Leo written by his wife, he liked to eat at Sizzler.

    That’s half a Lexus lease payment with $6000 up front. Waddya Kidd in’ me? But at least at the end of the lease you keep the guitar.

    But it gets me thinking. Maybe I need a Master Built Strat to match my ride.

    It would be easy to keep doing this off overpriced guitar ads, so I won't and this will be my last. That said.....

    I've bought three guitars there (Wildwood) and a Boogie Mark V, as they're just down the road, but I've often wondered.. do they have people from all over the world buying from them online on a regular basis, or is this a front for laundering money? I'm being somewhat facetious but it's insane the number of guitars, and their cost, they actually have on site.
