Possibly. Or maybe I'm just dealing with someone that isn't that bright. Misconstured isn't a word.
Nemesis wrote: You have been very assumptious
Assumptious is also not a word.

Sorry you didn't like it. However, given the fact that you were incapable of understanding what I wrote, maybe it was appropriate, especially considering your habit of making up words.
Nemesis wrote: You have also took what I deem to be a negative attitude towards the other user regarding his questions around 13 gauge strings.{/quote]

His "questions around" .13 gauge strings? Is English your second language?

He makes a very valid point. 13 gauge strings are available from Ernie ball, D'Addario, Rotosound and other vendors.

Once again, you have no clue what you're talking about. The brands you just mentioned sell 13's with wound 3rd's. Get someone to explain to you what a "wound 3rd" is, because I don't want to waste any more time on your complete ignorance.

Nemesis wrote: " Fender CS Necks are inferior because they are not quarter sawn."
Flat sawn necks are inferior to quarter sawn necks. Quater sawn necks are stiffer and more durable. However, this is just one more area in which you know nothing, so there's no need to argue it further with you.
Nemesis wrote:Even John Suhr believes it makes no difference
Ya, like a manufacturer is going to say "Well, flat sawn is inferior to quarter sawn, but it's a lot cheaper, so that's why we use flat sawn lumber." However, being that you worship corporations if they have marketing that suggests you do so, it doesn't surprise me that you'd quote a manufacturer as the word of God."
We keep asking questions around your statements but you opt for insults and slander in response.[/quote]



Asking questions "around" my statements? You know, people might take you a little more seriously if you developed at least a middle school level grasp of the english language.

Yeah, we don't do that either. This might not be the forum for you. Four or five posts in and you are combative and insulting. Is this really what you want to do with yourself here?
So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy. Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life...

This is an old and very interesting thread. Fender Japan domestic versions of the various Fender products come at different price points but they are all good instruments and FJ quality has been top notch for the better part of 30 years. The higher you go up the food chain the better appointed the guitars though. s

I till have my ExTrad '54 Strat and they Dyna-made "Crafted in Japan" ST54-120, a lacquer-finished doozie of a guitar.

I don't care much for USA made Fender products since 1964 but I'm old and set in my ways. If you keep an eye on Shimokura Used you can find some nice guitars and the yen is weaker these days than it has been in a while...

Then there's the Yamaha SG series from the mid-seventies but that's for another time and place... -L-

So where are we on "assumptious" being a word?

interesting thread.. I've never heard that (most) pre-cbs Fenders had 1/4 sawn necks. I'm certainly no expert, but this does not seem to be the case.
