I am disappointed to see that they have gone back to the headstock truss rod adjustment.
I understand the heel wheel is not traditional, but I think that is the point with the elite/ultra/deluxe model line.
Modern appointments on a strat.
The standard/pro have a more traditional feature set, and the avri/original have the vintage specs.
I am sure the ultra is a great guitar, but I wish they hadn't gone backwards.
I just saw the video a few minutes ago. It is a sharp looking guitar. I am curious what that new neck carve feels like. I liked my elite but the neck wasn’t as much of a departure as I was wanting. I was also hoping Fender was going to jump on the roasted maple bandwagon with this new series but I guess not

Agree on that.
They need to leave something for the Mod Shop
I'm underwhelmed, every time they do something cool they take two steps back shortly after...
Looks like an old American Standard. They went back to block saddles? Fail...
Deluxe/Elite/Ultra always had block saddles. Specwise only overall shape is similar to Standard. Fail
It's not something I'd buy because my tastes are more traditional but I think it is a nice Strat that should appeal to players seeking modern performance.The pickups sound very Stratty in the video and being noiseless they will be able to handle heavy distorted sounds.I don't see the need for the cutaway in the back...I have no problem accessing the high frets on a regular Strat but if it makes it even easier for shredders then so be it.I'm glad they got rid of the wheel truss rod of the previous Elites because it looked bad to my eye...the headstock adjustment of this new model is so easy to use(as featured on the American Standards,Pros ect).So who on Strat-talk is gonna post the first NGD of this new series???
Can't find it on Peach. What's the price point?
I tried to look for it too, but the link in the video points to nowhere.
Please forgive me for not drooling, but it's just another guitar, nothing to get excited about.
You have been forgiven.
I was hoping for stainless steel frets and I hope its not flat D neck like on IBZ guitars. Got plenty of time to get over with GAS and to get my **** together before I got a new axe for my 40th in March. Either this or Brewster
Most players are stuck in the past. And want no changes. It was done right the first time. That is why some hate or dislike G&L.
Oopsie, they pulled the video...
I’m not finding anything either.
Perhaps the launch of this product is delayed...
They probably jumped the gun and put the video out too soon, that's never happened before.
Its only 4am in Corona. Let them wake up
Yeah, but what about that little island in the Pacific Ocean that’s already been waiting for hours?
