    Fender tried this same finish back around 1984-5; I can't imagine why it's reappearing now.

    If at first you don't succeed...

    "...looks like something from another planet."

    I like it, but i also liked the antigua burst tele color... So I'm sure I'm in the minority.

    Didn't we already do this back in the 80's? Maybe it's a ploy to create something that will be of collectors value in 20 years? The ebay listing will say "one of 7 remaining of the 16 that actually sold back in 2013"

    Similar bodies have been selling on Ebay for years.

    I like ugly guitars, but that thing.... nope.
