    At least it's way, way, way less expensive than the custom shop version:

    I just saw story this in my news feed and came to post about it. Stuff looks amazing. Pricy, but with some of those specs, still a great buy. Squier is definitely staking out a stronger position on mid range to high end guitars, which is smart given the number of competitors coming in at the low end (Glarry, Grote, Harley Benton, Indio, Firefly, etc.).

    I love the colors but not a fan of the pickup configuration.

    I looked at them but really dont like the black headstock on those. It just dont seem to go well with the rest of the guitar unless the body was black .

    Agreed.

    But I can see any Gibson with a black headstock, or Epi, or Gretsch.

    So on Gibson style with the expected black headstock, this Gibson style Ibanez made some Pat Metheny signatures with a natural headstock for the budget version and "black" for the high end version.

    And while the black headstock was often reserved for a highly ornamented guitar, like let's say the flagship L-5, that long established fancy black headstock seems so out of sorts on a utilitarian ethic Fender, imho.

    It's the same reason I don't like block inlays or binding on a Fender electric.

    I dunno, I usually don't like black headstocks on a solid body unless the body is black but on the FR models the black pick guards/scratch plates seem to make it work for me this time.

    Edit : these might look good on it (Bare Knuckle P 90's)
