    It is literally the worst Fender badged electric I've had through my hands. Bad fret work, ugly slab body with sharp edges, just no good reason to go there.

    Have you had a Jim Root tele yet? I think you would really appreciate it.

    I want one. Hard to find. But if one comes my way, I'm gonna snag it. :)

    I have a Jim Root tele “squire” and I really like it. It has beautiful action.

    I flipped a couple of those Tie Dye Strats, not a fan but some people love them.

    Yeah, I just read up on some reviews. Not all that glowing. That's why I appreciate you guys. I love the design, but it seems like the quality of the build is sub-par. :(

    Plus, not as fun if I can't mod it. :)

  11. Nothin' there I like, especially the price tag.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    All seem like a fair answers to a fair question Eddie.
    Though it would be more tempting if the price were lower.

    I'd love one of these bodies for a project I have in my head. I love the flat top without the normal curves.

    The photos I looked at didn't show a SD in the neck. Just a single coil. Has the small trem block.

    One of those came up semi-locally a while back for $200 IIRC. I kinda hemmed and hawed about it, given the three hour round trip. It went after a while--poof!
