Put me down for a "who cares," those are both nice-looking boards.
Well again for me, I don't care which one Is the rosewood. They both look great and in fact the top one is beautiful. I'd probably guess that one is the PF but it don't matter to me. I like both over maple.
SRV with Pau Ferro. A great neck
Top PF, bottom RW. I think I heard someone mention a cash prize?
I'm not sure it is - I thought it was only Mexican models which were now with Pau Ferro?
My understanding was that US made Fenders would still have Rosewood as standard.
Wow! I really like the way the grain on this board, it's so perfectly straight. It mirrors the strings almost like it's a shadow.
Pau Ferro is nice but I love my MIM'S rosewood board. Dark and rich looking.
No, I believe the high end American models have options for rosewood, but not all of the AM series.
Sorry, looks like MIM gets PF and American Deluxe gets Ebony.
Not sure which models will still receive Rosewood, if any.
I got a new MIM Standard Strat on memorial day weekend and it has Rosewood.
Must not be new.
The ones being produced this year have PF.
Did you pay $625 for yours? Or $599?
Regularly $625 but I got it for less.
That’s why. The remaining rosewood guitars are selling for $625 I believe.
Either the remaining guitars or the remaining rosewood they have.
Lol, it was a memorial weekend sale. I got 15% off. It was new. Came to $531 and change.
That's a typical sale price.
I know. But I’m saying that while you can still find Rosewood MIM standards, the ones being made going forward will not have rosewood.
Ok, and that would still be fine.
For the time being, the American Professional and American Vintage series will still have the option of rosewood boards. Some artist series will continue to have rosewood boards as well (Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck).
Oh, and the American Special series too...rosewood still available.
MIMs as already mentioned are a different story.
I think it's just the Elite is getting Ebony, but everything else US made that had rosewood before will still have it. I don't think Pau Ferro has impacted the US line at all. Obviously the SRV Strat is US made and has it, but that had it before anyway.
I'd say the option of Rosewood is still the norm, unless you're going Mexican made.
The dark is probably rosewood as it looks like it’s been played quite a bit by the fret wear, the other looks brand new so the dark one also has finger oils and whatever from being played !
