    More like the only person who looks at the 7 to 10 Adorama emails that flood my inbox every day, lol

    Back in Jan they had a few MIA leftys during their "never touched, open box" sale.

    The Fender rep said that only 7% of their production is LH, so Adorama probably never orders enough to have a big blow out (they are really just a camera shop).

    I just verified that the above is correct. I didn't complete the order, but I went far enough with it to verify that the $550 discount is indeed active via the coupon code.

    $1099 is a decent price for them. I just don’t understand how Adorama normally charges $200 more ($1649) for that guitar because of it being Lake Placid Blue. No other difference. Makes no sense.

    Nobody ever pays list price at Adorama.

    You wait until the guitar or bass you want comes up on sale, and then you buy it.

    Would anyone ever pay more than $399 for a Standard Stratocaster, when they go on sale every month?

    That might be so but the other Fender American Professional Stratocasters($1449) go on sale for under $1k. The only difference with this one is that it’s Lake Placid Blue. Not really all that “exclusive”. I’ve bought plenty of gear on sale from Adorama. Waiting for their channel bound neck strats to be offered cheap. Waiting...waiting...
