    So, about a year and a half ago, Fender introduced the new American Professional series. They told us these were absolutely the best guitars they could make. Now, they've introduced the American Professional II series. They tell us thesse are better.

    How does that work, exactly? I'm having an existential crisis here. Are there levels of superlative? Is there best, bester and bestest?

    I love advertising and sales hype.

    According to the advertising claims after using super whitening tooth paste and mouthwash for twenty years I should be getting complaints from NASA for blinding their satellites with the glare from my teeth.

    At this time my teeth seem to be a very average shade of old guy dinge.

    The next time I go to the store for tooth paste I'll still buy the super whitening kind.

    Likely your next guitar will be a Fender.

    To be fair, every other guitar company does this too.
