I wish I hadn't seen it as I won't get it off my mind
Should I put the kettle on? Sorry, that's the only thought going through my head at the moment.
My thoughts are that the American Pros are great guitars and if you like the Silverburst color, you should probably grab one as they're a limited run and I don't think they're any more expensive than the other colors.
I like the way they try and camouflage the humbucker in the pickguard, very sneaky Fender inc...
This is what credit cards are for.
The young guy who has a lesson straight after me turned up with a MIM eqivalent one of these last week, same colour. Both my tutor and I had a play. We both have American Standards. We both looked at each other after five minutes playing the thing with expressions that said ‘why did we pay so much for our guitars’? We now both neeeeeeeed one,
Does anyone else wish Fender would angle the bridge pickup correctly when using a humbucker ?
I think Van Halen had the right idea.
I dig it.
Looks way better on a Strat than a Les Paul.
I had a thought once but it got lonely and left.
I know, right?
It's nice. Though I generally am not a fan of silver bursts..
I agree. It bugs me about it!
I hadn’t noticed that. Cool! I love zebra humbuckers but I do like a Strat that looks neat and tidy.
I wonder why they don't? I have a strat copy with an angled humbucker at the bridge and I think it looks much better than my American Standard HSS with the straight humbucker. Both of them split too and it seems like the angled humbucker should give a more accurate single coil bridge tone when split. Why wouldn't Fender do it? It can't be a cost thing can it? Is it because not many pickguards are cut like that so it would limit options if you want to swap guards?
Looks real nice !
