I guess this is Fender’s answer to the whole Silver Sky thing? It’s dumb and I hate it. PRS makes a shit Strat, Fender makes a shit Les Paul.

Carlos Santana has a new model with Fender as well but I couldn’t find any photos.

There are lots about this guitar that should bug me, but I think the main one is it saying Synchronised Tremolo on the headstock despite it obviously not having one.

Even the bridge saddles are so aghast at the monstrosity that they're cringing as far back as they can, in an effort to escape. The poor things.

Idk man Andertons did a video with both the Slash and the Santana models and that seems like a lot of effort for a one off April Fools joke, especially when other outlets have covered it. If it is then holy shit what a ruse

Edit: it’s a fucking one off ruse I hate this

Well, the video conferences with Slash and Carlos Santana were pretty clear about the authenticity.

But they are actually selling these "prototypes", if you watch the video to the end.

You can see the neck pocket being different on the Slash model, but either they used a Cyclone or Toronado neck, or the intonation is way off on that.
