    Fender Custom shop neck, real or fake?

    Well there are several things that make me doubt the origin of this neck. I need shots of the heel and areas that go in the pocket.

    Fender Custom shop neck, real or fake?

    I am doubtful of the veracity of that neck.

    Why does Fender hollow out the American Original 50's strat in ash?

    You all missed why, they were looking for more than 10 pages on Strat Talk, and were successful. The fact that it lightened up the weight of the guitar was a secondary benefit.

    Curly Cord Love

    I have an original directional Fender Coily cord, and then I purchased the shorter more tightly wound one that was standard with Eric Johnson strats. They have a place, and I do notice they do cut a little high end brittleness.

    Misleading fender finishes

    Just so you know I have searched the web and found a 2008 Catalog and here is the page showing THIN SKIN for the 57 and thin for 62, So apparently Fender did not know either.

    Misleading fender finishes

    Not misleading.. perhaps misunderstood. So I have both a 62 hotrod and several and at one time 1 of each model, in each color made of the teles and the strats. In fact I had 5 of the 1 of 46 runs for both the tele and the strat. That said I have no idea if there is poly under the Hot Rod...

    String experts

    From what I read the 12-52 is about right but they had a wound third so thus the raised pole on the G string. In addition I read that Nickel was the majority of old strings.

    Why doesn't Fender provide a reissue model for people who want vintage style

    I don't think OSHA will allow shirtless men and streetwear women to work in the factory without proper safety gear. No spray booths and band saws without hand protection.

    Fake? Is this Hendrix strat real? Help!

    Much better than checking after you spent way too much for a counterfeit. Not a good fake either.

    Why doesn't Fender provide a reissue model for people who want vintage style

    I am so very sorry, I should have said in Strats the 62 Hot Rod was the neck I was thinking about.

    Why doesn't Fender provide a reissue model for people who want vintage style

    BTW the original Hot Rod series had a flatter neck medium jumbo frets and a huge neck, single coils with rw middle.

    Why doesn't Fender provide a reissue model for people who want vintage style

    Yes you are confused/mistaken. CS will do a time machine model with your choice of age/relic treatment.

    '62 Strat AVRI (Black over Sunburst)

    Generally when I am looking for the opinion of those who know, I disregard those in a forum directly focused upon the item at hand. In fact I look to random people who as far as I know have absolutely no knowledge about guitars. In fact I would trust them implicitly and ask their advice solely...

    AVRI 57 Stratocaster - Whats the concensus?

    I don't know about the guitar but that knuckle in the second toe looks broken. I would have that looked at.
