    Some folks like ceramics and trad trems, though. Aren't they subjective improvements?

    I suppose so, but they made those changes due to what online forums and customers were requesting.....more people prefer alnico pickups and a modern more stable 2 point trem.....hence the $50 or so increase in the USA, because it costs more to produce

    As I see it they are not "improvements" per se, just different specifications, with a certain attraction to people that didn't like the previous batch. People expect some "marketing"...
    Mail goal of renaming and changing it a little is getting the prices up.

    Fifty bucks. I thought there was some massive price increase. A fiddy is less than it would cost to switch from ceramic to alnico pups. same with the trem I guess. The Standard's been out for so long the market is pretty much saturated I imagine; seems a good time to move on.

    I was down in the DC area this weekend. I went to visit the Rockville, MD GC ... there were some nice sales there that made me want to pull out the credit card.

    CV Tele for $259
    LTD EC-1000 for $400

    But no can do. I'm broke. Too many guitars.

    I'm going to bring a few guitars to school in September. :) That should open a few spaces on the rack so I can buy some more.

    I'm really curious about the Fender Player Series but may not be available yet in my country (particularly my town) yet. I've watched a few videos on these FPS; sounds interesting and more or less a step upgrade from the old MIM Standard series. The FPS reminds me of the former American Standard itself; except for the vintage string tree of the MIM Standard and classic series is still retained.
