    Fender might be interested.

    And I might add, "in before the lock".:D

    What do you think of the MFD pickups verses some of the regular Tele neck pickups?

    the nameplate thing is weird.i would not want a non fender amp with a fender badge.i would rather have the builders name on it.i'm not stuck on the fender name.

    As long as they are clearly marked on the inside that they are repros I don't have a problem but Fender might. I have reproduced Dodge parts and we have to be clear about repro parts.
    Thanks John

    A lot of builders do it to look authentic. My friend has built every tweed, brown face, black face that fender ever made ,that was his dream and he has done it. He is now starting to build them under his name.

    I agree and have told him that.
    He pays top dollar for a cabinet and then start adding in logos and face plates it adds up quickly.
    He bends his own chassis on alot of them

    I pulled the trigger on the 53 wide panel yesterday. He came by to pick up the last bunch and I couldn't let it go. He made me a great deal and my kids get a classic when I am gone.

    It's like putting a Fender decal on a guitar you built yourself. It might not be illegal, but it's misrepresentation. I don't like it at all.

    But it's not a classic. It's a copy. A classic would be an original 53 made by Fender. Your kids will get a 2019 amplifier built by a guy who made reproductions. It might be an incredible amp, but it's not a classic.

    This is a 33 watt, emenince lil buddy,
    Mid control knob on back. You can scoop or boost your mids, pretty cool addition.

    They are definitely different. I always thought they were a little smoother not as much bite.

    I agree it’s no different. Now if aperson is doing mods to real Fender amps and selling them with full disclosure, maybe attach a mod plate, they know what they are buying. Like someone puts a Fender sticker on their headstock, it’s their axe, I couldn’t do it, but it’s theirs. If they are trying to sell it as a real Fender a beat down is in order.

    I had ants in my studio too, now I try not to leave half eaten pop-tarts laying around, especially on the console. Hard to get a good mix with the ants biting you when you are riding the faders. They are fun to watch on the snare when you drum though, they jump like little 6 legged kangaroos.

    So how is this different from someone building a Partscaster and putting the Fender logo on the headstock? Unsuspecting buyers might not know.
