    This popped up when I opened Amazon. It is from their Canadian site. Looks every penny worth the price...

    On the bright side, you'll never see anyone playing one like it!

    Make sure you get a dozen or so of those screws, to go with it.

    Edit: Ahhh, Otis beat me to it by seconds!

    I believe that's the John Sebastian Artist Model from when he was in The Lovin' Spoonful. I'd jump on it right away!!

    Good to see Fender is finally on board with stainless! It's about time! Upcharge seems a bit steep....

    Hmmm.... I don't know.... neck seems a bit too thin and those bubble pickups are known to be overly tinney in sound, especially in hot environments ;) I'd pass on it :cool:

    It may have a scooped sound, which could make it great for old school metal ;)

    An old deaf roadie should know this stuff inside and out.

    You're fired!

    LOL - I planned to make a crack about scooped mids, but was beat to the keyboard.

    I think it's been ladled incorrectly.

    How do you scoop your mids. Mine hang over my belt buckle. Protects the back of the guitar from rash, but still.

    Top material type: Indian rosewood. I don't see it. Ask for more pictures.
