    Maybe I should just stop sticking up for these guitars. I've done it with photos in other threads. Maybe If I say they are all unplayable I can get them cheaper on the used market. :)

    Anyway instead of a photo check this video out.
    Reggie pulls his Strat out around 10 mins and you get a few different views of it. When his hand isn't resting on the neck the bass E is barely on the fretboard up high.

    I have a 52 AVRI and a 62 AVRI. Both with their original saddles and nut. I don't have an issue with the E strings sliding off.

    I have 52HR and 62AVRI Teles, both 2012, and have no issues with over edge rolling.

    Spent a couple of hours with the guitar today and I think it may be a case of recalibration.. and being more thoughtful when jumping up and down the neck grabbing chords. I guess I'm saying it's less forgiving. Which is not a bad thing.

    Yes, less forgiving, and recalibration.

    Not addressing this to you in particular:

    Maybe not everyone will get used to it, but I think the point here is that all vintage, and vintage-spec, Fenders have been like that, so maybe it IS 'you', and not the guitar... and by not giving it a good try, you eliminate a big chunk of instruments. If all you like is modern-spec stuff, then it doesn't matter!

    Just watched the vid. Nice playing, and yeah, I have trouble with the high E slipping, not all the way off, but squealing, when I grab lots of chords like that. Seems you're adapting OK, though... :cool::)
