    A 10 to 15 grand custom shop Fender seems to me to be to be the antithesis of everything Joe Strummer and the Clash stood for and feels to me like a betrayal of Joe’s image.
    Include me out.

    Definitely yeah! I was ready to pay a good amount of money for this guitar because I think that it would be a great addition to my staple, a 59 esquire sounds just wonderful - even if Joe would probably have hated it.

    But this guitar seems to be made just for collectors with deep pockets and not musicians, so thanks Fender, maybe next time.

    Joe Strummer is dead.
    This guitar has nothing to do with The Clash.
    Nobody is going to call them The Cash.

    Uh not a tele but... an entire series of Fender Robben Ford CS guitars exist. Also know as Fender Esprit Ultra. One of the most beautiful guitars Fender ever made.

    Really? That's confirmed? Ridiculous. This seems to be a money grabbing trend among companies now. Go buy a Tone Bender to go along with it. Has to be at least 10k thank you for the info.Passed up on a nice guitar waiting for information about this release.

    Yes, unfortunately I can confirm it: this information come directly from Fender, so for me (and many other guys I suppose) this is a "no, thanks".

    These are luxury products. There is no "money grabbing" with non-essential items.

    Repainting a bunch of Esquires you didn't sell to look like Joe's and charging 10 grand for 60? $600.000.00 Yeah, that's a money grab.
