So I posted this thread the other day about the AO 60’s Strat I had ordered. https://www.strat-talk.com/threads/incoming-ngd.533493/ I had a nightmare issues last April with the AO 60’s Tele. All three wound strings would rattle and buzz at the 12th fret to the end of the neck unless the action was over 1/8th an inch which is double what fender specs say for setup. Returned the first, GC ordered one direct from Fender for me, it rattled at the 10th and higher, returned it and they ordered a third from Fender, same exact issue. My AO 50’s Tele was set at 1/16th to Fender spec with no hint of buzz much less rattle, EJ Thinline exact same thing. Today the AO 60’s Strat arrived with the action set a good bit over 1/8th and was already rattling so I knew it was not likely to go well. After setting it to my preferred height, right between 1/16 and 1/8 at 17th fret it was a complete rattling mess. In addition just like the AO 60’s Tele one of the latches on the G&G case hangs up unless you push the top lid back a bit to free it and the neck support piece in the case is so loose and wiggling it feels like it will break off. Needless to say the guitar is already boxed back up and fedex will be taking it back to Sweetwater tomorrow. I am done with the fender AO 60’s series for good, 4 duds in 10 months! I also tried three other RW board Strats at GC last weekend and even with sky high action they all rattled and buzzed. Not sure why the maple necks I’ve played don’t do this but suffice to say I’m probably done with fender guitars all together since I don’t like maple necks. By contrast my PRS Custom 22 I bought in November plays like a dream. If only the silver sky could be setup to gloat the trem without requiring shims I’d be all over it for a RW Strat type guitar.
