I like it!
It’s been done before of course but not by Fender. I love the idea of the pedalboard for controls
Yeah I like that too!!! Gorgeous curves on that body. String tree looks a bit cheap though, for a guitar of that pedigree
but...but... TONE WOOD
Looks like an interesting concept.
I imagine the pricing is going to be closer to a Saleen car than a production Fender.
Whenever I see something like that.. I'm wondering who ordered it? If the answer is the Marketing Dept.. then I'm wondering about the lag time for paying customers who wait and wait for their guitars... Do they have to "wait in line" while some "Super Guitar" is created for the museum..
...but...but...you know there's no such thing right?
I like the idea. And the color. I don't like the execution. Top profile doesn't appeal to me. And I would go crazy without knobs. There are times playing when your balance is just not right to hit a pedal when you need to, without thinking ahead a bit.
Looking at the matching car ... the guitar looks so much more flattened, perhaps roadkill? Lol.
He talks about the all-wood center block core to ensure tone wood transfer ... Plus the all-wood cap ... sigh ... Basically he made a wood guitar using carbon fiber as a finish option. He should have made a completely non-wood guitar. Like those Rainsong acoustics that are all carbon fiber, you can play them in the rain even. Maybe next year's version will be less lumber?
Weren't most of the original Fender colors based on GM colors, specifically Cadillac? The Corvette museum has a few matching/inspired-by fender guitars hanging up with their car too. So it's a Fender and Automotive history not Fender and just Shelby history.
Some cool elements in the guitar though. Take a close look at the bridge saddles. Pickup uses much more prominent pole screw heads.
Tele ashtray clear plastic cover. Design features that could end up in later production guitars.
I’ve tried several carbon fiber guitars, but still prefer wood. The only one I really liked was a Rainsong hybrid made with both fiberglass and carbon fiber. Unfortunately, it was out of my budget.
can someone please direct me to the recognized Tone Wood accrediting organization's website so I can download the list of Tone Wood certification ratings?
Meh, what are the long term consequences of carbon fiber? And honestly, that is an ugly guitar.
You're going to need the tone pick, directional tone cable and tone string specs too.
I could have lived my entire life, perfectly happy and content, without the knowledge of this thing existing.
As a matter of fact, I want the :30 seconds of my life back that was wasted contemplating its existence...
Looks like it was left out in the sun and melted.
Volume and tone have to be controlled...on a pedal board?
So ugly AND impractical. I'm calling it the next big thing!
That thing is ugly as hell. Ugh.
That said, I'd be interested in a carbon fiber strat if they just made it look and feel (as close as possible) like a normal strat, if it were affordable. I have often thought about getting a carbon fiber acoustic so I could leave it out of a case, but they're too expensive and all of them seem pretty ugly.
People didn’t like the Parker Fly when it first surfaced, some still don’t!
Made in a very similar way and my DeLuxe is amazing to play and light as 2 bags of sugar.
In fact, that could be where the luthier got the idea from in the first place.
What a strange weight measurement system you have.
My Stratocaster weighs as much as 11 dandelions!
My 79 25th Anniversary weighed 1 bottle of Jack Daniels, 7 potatoes and 3 house bricks!
