    whew, that was close.
    If it had a rosewood board, it'd be hard to resist not getting a 2nd AmPro - like that Blue!

    I'm all set for S/S/S and H/S/S Strats. If they ever do this deal on an Am Pro Strat HH in a color I like, I'll be all over it.

    I must be insane. I had an AmPro SSS (also at the same price - in puke green) and it was OK, but didn't really ring my chimes. I recently got a Player Series in LPB on a prior Adorama deal, and strangely enough, much prefer the toanz I'm getting from that... I ended up trading the AmPro even up for a new PRS S2 Standard 22...

    I notice that a number of these specials are blue, or some shade thereof.

    Not a fan of blue, though it's better then some other colors. Yet still, this tempts me.

    LPB is a much desired color, so Adorama had Fender make them a bunch of Limited Edition guitars across a few product lines.

    It's an **old man** color (from 1960) but it looks fresh to non guitar people.

    2 years ago, Adorama had Fender make a bunch of Sea Foam just for them.

    Hopefully the 2020 LE will either have Purple Flake, or Flip Flop.

    They did it like 30 years ago, and some had the necks/fretboards/bodies all done with the same flip flop paint.

    Click to take it all in.....

    Thanks @vid1900 - you just cost me $999! Just had to give it a shot. No tax, no shipping, little risk...

    Sure, listen to some Ragebeats on Spotify, tip back some booze, post some expensive guitars; no better way to pass the time on the road.

    If I had seen this last Wednesday I might’ve jumped. But now that the ultras are out the elites are dropping. Should have my cherry burst sss this Wednesday. But I do love the blue. But I still love the elite neck profile

    Yeah, Elites have dipped into the $1299 range on past sales, so hopefully there is a closeout soon that puts them at $1100
