Well that's good to hear then.  Those are all great colors, too.

No blondes or 'bursts?

The custom colors are so much cooler than Sunburst and Oly White or whatever. I'm glad they didn't play it safe.

I respectfully disagree. The custom colors don't do a thing for me.  IMO, there's nothing safer than "custom colors" as every other guy in America wants an automobile-colored guitar.

Yes. Everything except sunburst was, at least on a Jaguar and Jazzmaster.

I want an guitar-colored Automobile! I already got the guitars. :D

Sunburst is easily the safest color Fender does, they do almost EVERYTHING in Sunburst. I could go the rest of my life with out seeing another Sunburst Fender of any kind. IMO They're boring, they make me feel instant boredom just looking at them.

Even my Avi has a Sunburst Bass VI playing doll, it's EVERYWHERE.

I like both sunburst and custom colors.. depends a lot on the guitar. sunburst is a bit overdone but I don't think it's boring at all, I love it  :)


good to hear they got the radius right.. I was wondering about that 9.5"

I personally think they are a bit overpriced but that's more to do with me thinking the standard AVRI's are..

Don't come to my house; you'd die of boredom.
