I am getting back into playing more lately now that my kids are growing up. I'm interested in adding another Fender to my arsenal but haven't nailed down a model yet. I do have my eyes on a few though. I own a 2012 American Standard Strat and a 2012 American Standard Tele and like both of those very much. Prices have gone up significantly since those purchases in 2012 and further compounded by our Canadian dollar which was close to par in 2012 and now far from that. I understand that the American Professional Series is the line that's closest to the American Standard Series of yester-year, and costs about $800CAD more than I believe I paid. I think that will be out of budget for me, most likely. So if I want to go American, I'm left with the Performer series. In all honesty, the specs on the Performer series is quite desirable for me and I'm interested in the HSS configuration. The Grease-Bucket tone control and the Push-Pull Pot are appealing features to me. The big question is... Will I likely notice a decrease in quality of the 2020 Performer Series over my 2012 Standard Series considering it's still a ~$400 increase in price? I'm also eyeing up the MIM Vintera series, specifically the 60's model, but not sure I'd be happy with a 7.5" radius neck. Thoughts and comments most welcome! TIA.
