    Although I wonder... of all the cool, uncommon, extravagant colors the elites come in, you chose... black? Why?

    Sharp looking guitar. Like the way the white binding contrasts with the black.

    I'm curious, are those locking tuners staggered?

    Congrats on such a find guitar!

    It's not just black....but Mystic black. The whole body, to paraphrase....is covered in reflective flakes within its finish twinkling subtly under lights like a blanket of star-strewn black velvet, and is truly out of this world. That is why I went for the Mystic black. It truly is out of this world!:)

    Thanks! The tuners are perfectly aligned. Maybe the way I took the pic gave that impression?

    The Fender "F" logo lockers are staggered. There are only two different heights though. The tall ones are for E A D and the short ones are for G B e.

    I like the white binding on the black. I think it really sets it off along with the white ply under the pickguard/scratch plate. Really nice look with the maple. It accents it well.
    Nice guitar!

    thats not what he meant. he was talking about staggered pole heights. these are supposed to eliminate the need for string trees, although I see they put one on.

    Do you mean the posts? I have checked and they all seem to be the same height. This guitar came straight from the factory in Corona, so maybe Fender has changed that aspect of their locking tuners, and if they are staggered, the height difference is very small. 20171123_111534.jpg

    well, that explains the string tree.
