Very nice, congratulations!
Welcome aboard !
Don't forget to join the owners club too.
I've had mine for a few weeks now and still finding new tones.
Awesome!! Now, if you could just make a strap out of that rug........ (reminds me of the strap I used at church years ago)
Kinda halfway between the two colors, yes. Good eye!
Ya know, that is a genius level idea. The straps would be unique and gorgeous. That
Particular rug is 100 years old and still intact so would be a shame to cut it up. But there’s a LOT of old lower cost worn out rugs on eBay that you could salvage a couple good looking strap-sized strips from. An upholstery person could help figure out how to finish the edges etc. hmmmm.
I wouldn’t touch a rug that beautiful and old either. Maybe go to a fabric store and find a pattern you like and ask them for suggestions how to make a home made strap. I just really like the pattern on that rug.
Out of curiosity, do the two control knobs have a different style of knurl from each other? Mine don't match and I find it slightly annoying.
And you can even drop the “for the price” bit.
They look the same to me but the eyes aren’t what they used to be!
Yes agree. A real standout.
It is not "Vintage Blonde" though, it's simply "Blonde" as per the Fender site. Classic Baja is "Blonde", American Special for instance is "Vintage Blonde", and it looks paler and almost like Lemon sherbert colour. Roadworn 50s "Vintage Blonde" looks downright Orange. THing is, you can see the Ash grain through the Baja, which is awesome. THe RW and Special, it's a matte thicker coat and you can't see the Wood Grain.
Looks like faded or washed out butterscotch blonde.
Yeah. Was looking at the colors vs what fender names the color on a range of yellow-ish telecasters and it’s really all over the map.
