I don't want to like it, but I think I do...
I would like it better if it had single coils.
I could learn to like one! I'm mellowing in my years, and I now can actually accept humbuckers on a Strat! Never a fan of bursts, this one is downplayed (in my opinion) by the natural wood look of the body.
Their price is sweet, too!
I had one of the originals, back in 1983. All I can say is that it's not a Strat.
Then it would just be a regular Player.
What's the going rate?
US $629.99 at Sweetwater.
Fender Lead II
They go for $599.99.
I've actually been looking at one to bash when I'm in the great outdoors fishing/hunting/camping.
Cool little guitars and a reasonable price.
Ya know they make guitars acoustically now, right?
They also make battery powered amplifiers. Mine has all kinds of effects and even a drum machine.
It's the 21st century. Join us.
When is the brown truck dropping it off?
Worth a look.
I just checked Sweetwater. They have four. I am so tempted.
I've been tempted by the new Leads; so far I've only tried out the Player Lead IIs plugged in; I haven't tried a Player Lead III yet.
I owned an original Lead II - got it new in November 1979 and kept it until the spring of 2015 when I finally let it go, primarily because the original neck shape (narrow 1 9/16" nut width and fairly thick for that era of Fender depth combined with the vintage radius) was pretty much unplayable for me. The new ones, with the typical Player modern C neck, are much more comfortable than the originals. Also the originals had those hot and somewhat compressed X-1 pickups and the Player series Strat pickups are bit sweeter. And of course my '79 Lead was the real heavy ash; the Player versions are alder and the ones I've picked up have been least a pound lighter than my old original.
I've still got one of the original Lead IIIs, and while it's not a Strat, it is a very nice guitar.
