Out for delivery. Woot!
The color looks better in person than online, IMO. I'm a happy camper. Now to keep an eye out for a sale on a decent hard case.
Congrats! Funny enough I received an email from MF this morning, Fender cases 15% off... https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/fender-strat-tele-hardshell-case/541530000008059
Although I think I saw them even cheaper at Sweetwater earlier this year...
.....And finally in tonite's news, a Florida man; was observed copulating with a guitar, while singing "You Look Better Than Your Online Photo". No word on whether officers let him finish before being arrested..... er, the song that is.
My gosh, this sale seems to still be going on? I almost succumbed, but I REALLY want a Fiesta Red Telecaster with maple neck and it seems like the only options out there in this color are the new Vintera models. And they ALL seem to run around $900. Ouch.
I just checked and indeed the sale is still kicking.
Either no one from Fender has complained, or they're down to the last few and are really trying to clear them out for good.
It is one heck of a good sale!!
Dang it vid1900, you caught me in your trap! I just pushed the "buy" button for the LPB Telecaster and I guess I am now an owner in waiting. I did a lot of research on this thing, and I could not find even a used one that got near this price, sans tax and shipping. It's a definite bargain!!
Mine just landed in San Pablo, so maybe it'll get here tomorrow (it's scheduled for Thursday)! My LPB tele and LPB duo sonic will soon have company!
Mine was originally scheduled for delivery on a Monday, but arrived the Friday before!
Mine shows bought and paid for, but I still have no shipment confirmation. It's probably being shipped to their front man, vid1900!
is the LPB like a metal flake or just a solid blue?
I’m going to be in so much trouble with the wifey if it’s metal flake.
I sure hope so.
I've spent so much coin on cameras and instruments there, the least they could do is send me your guitar.
It's metallic, but not full metal flake like a bass boat:
Yep, what @vid1900 said. That photo is a pretty accurate representation of how it looks in bright light. In most gloomy November light, it can look a bit less metallic. Definitely not flaky though, more like specked.
I'm just glad I can help out....is there anything else I could order for you?
I guess the Canon 1200mm f/5 lens would be great with Christmas right around the corner.
That's a very good choice! Oh, the telescope is nice too!
My LPB Strat is on its way.
Still $499 as of Nov 7
I got a UPS tracking number less than 4 hours after placing the order today (Thursday). Wow!
