Like many others no doubt, I enjoy trawling the online classifieds -- from local, eg Gumtree/CL, to national eg ebay/Reverb. I see lots of strat/tele copies, including the respected names in the thread title, that are no doubt fine instruments yet I always scroll right past. If I'm going to buy a strat/tele/jazzmaster, it's going to be a Fender or Squier. This is of course, an emotional, irrational point of view, but I'm stuck with it. Brainwashed? Sure. Not to mention hypocritical, as I would happily buy a Tokai Love Rock, Bacchus Live Road et al. But when it comes to Leo's designs, it has to be a Fender (yeah I know it's not the same company anymore). I am a little curious how many others share this strange affliction ... so here comes the poorly designed poll.
