Not that MIM is bad or owt, and it does come with a case, but it's still like 400+ quid more than a MIM Strat?

Yeah, shit is NASTY pale, man, esp when they're using dark scratchplates.

Like old dry dog turds that have been bleached by the sun

I think the Classic Players and "Classic 60s" offsets are the best part of a grand these days and the TVL JM was over £

I think they're pretty though:

Yeah, they do look a tad pasty. Might look better IRL?

I'd stand up to anyone and say that Padme looks better than that SFG jazzmaster there. I don't care if I payed 100 dollars or a 1000.

im sure it doesn't sound as good.


what the fuck is fender doing if i can make a better looking guitar using the same color scheme for $900 less
the fretboard AND the tort look better on mine.

what the fuck did WARMOTH buy all the good Tort out from under fender ?

this is THE MARKETING guitar. they should pick the best looking one in the factory for all these photo shoots.

its like saying McDonalds would use what a big mac from you local mcdz instead of using the perfect marketing one for photo shoots.

even if the guitars they pump out to stores look better in person WHAT THE FUCK AND WHO THE FUCK IS MARKETING THIS SHIT? FIRE ALL OF THEM. THEY SUCK AT IT. I DON'T WANT THAT GUITAR IT LOOKS LIKE OLD DOG SHIT.

its fuckin great.

it reminds me of the squier telejazz deluxe special they made a couple years ago with the j mascus neck on it.


i loved that guitar it was so bad ass.
the neck had 8 fucking pounds of high gloss on it. it was amazing

makes me want to pull off all the black shit around these pickups and see what it would look like with tort.

Filtrons and adonized pickguards lolz

The three pickup one sounds right up my alley though. As does that CAR abomination. "Lacquer finish" intrigues me too. I wonder if the Mustang saddles match the 9.5" radius?
