Fax Guitars Mercury 2

Post by plopswagon »




I really like this (I’d go with different pickup options) but the overall esthetic of a modernized Fender without the goofy bits really looks great.

I love it, and love the pickups, but it need more goofy bits. No locking trem seems like a misstep.

It looks like a Fender Performer without the trem and weird pickups.

Yup, I meant to type Fender Performer but left it out.

Goofy bits are what makes a Performer. The whole idea of them was goofy.

Might as well do an Acoustisoniformer at this point....

Fuck I really want a Performer....

Perform her, I just…nevermind.

I’d normally agree but the pickups and stuff on the originals look like outdated medical equipment. I bet they all have turned that gross tannish skin tone old computers turned back in the 80s
