    I'd pay $2500 max. They will choke on them. I see a big blow out sale soon. .

    meh - I'm waiting for it to show up on craigs, w/ ad copy that highlights the upgrades; like casters.

    Peace - Deeve

    Are you trying to say minerals used in manufacturing the electronic components were mined from the Stonehenge monoliths?

    The advert reads Sweetwater is selling all 5 made. It’s not on the Fender.com website.
    I wonder how that works? $7500 MSRP. Does Sweetwater own them?
    Count me out.

    Wow!!! And they didn't even finger joint the cab, so it'll probably fall apart if you use it.

    I noticed that and was underwhelmed by their choice of edges.
    Obv not for cost cutting, so why?
    :rolleyes:

    Maybe it's just proud parents, showing off what their kids made at woodworking class.

    in that case it would be pretty neat.

    I think we should all take a moment and remember..... there will be candy in with the shipment of the amp.

    This is advice that I should take in any gear related scenario.

    Sadly, they probably took the picture of the best one. Sadness.

    edit: I think we’d get a chuckle if it were on the old pacair Musicman “Hall of Shame” where Musicmans had sideways grillcloth and stuff.

    If I won a billion dollar lottery, I wouldn't buy one.
    Come to think of it, if I won the lottery, I would give all my equipment away & never play again.

    Of course it’s nuts, but good for Fender. There’s a very rich guy “I fancy that” market. Exploit it.

    I love the $8000 relic Teles I see at guitar center when you could by an Original for the same price.

    Who buys this bleep?? That thing is hideous....

    I’m going to start selling my old shoes on eBay for $1000
