I've got a T5..... This may be interesting but it's not "NEW NEW NEW" like they are marketing it. I'll play one but it will have to be great to replace my T5.
On anything with a micro USB my experience is the same but the charging port on my daughter's old iPhone went dead.I go through charging cables like crazy, but I’ve never had the actual charging port break. I have wireless headphones, Sphero droids, Bluetooth speakers, and programmable remotes, but I’ve never had the charging port break.
I read this week that guitar sales are way down from 10 years ago... I think this insane price hiking is exactly why. 10 years ago, you could buy an American made Strat or Tele for $800-900 all day long. Now, that same guitar is $1400-1500. Even foreign guitars are getting silly in their pricing. These companies are pricing themselves out of profits, IMO.Now that I see that Reverend is introducing Korean guitars at $1900 I don't think the $2000 is out of line but it's still more than I would spend (for either). The fact that this has "American" in the name makes me think a MIM version as suggested above for $899 is probably very likely. And I would be a buyer for sure in that range.
In regards to the micro USB, to me the issue isnt just failure rate but the fact that they are hitting the market with an obsolete port. USB-C is the way of the land these days and is more robust, easier to use and would allow you to use/share any of the mass amounts of charging cables people already have hanging around. I shake my head any time anything in 2019 is introduced with a micro USB port.
I read an article on my Google news feed (can't remember the exact source) that said that the tops are screen printed. Given the price, my guess is that the grain that is visible on the top is real, since the top is Sitka spruce, but the colouration of the top is applied through screen printing.Please link the source where you got this information. You are saying it's a photo print top?
https://www.popularmechanics.com/te...acoustasonic-guitar-electric-acoustic-hybrid/"When I first saw the Acoustasonics, I was struck by the ornate, gorgeous finishes on the guitars. Recently exploring how paint finishes affect tone, I asked about what the finishes were made of. It turns out they are screen printed finishes. While Fender is keeping info on the technology behind the finishes under wraps for the time being, the possibilities are alluring and the technology is a testament to Fender’s ethos of customization. Mooney explained “because the finishes are screen printed, it opens the doors for customization and one-off guitars. If you’re obsessed with your dog, hypothetically you can take a picture of your dog and make that your finish.”
It is almost like money is worth less now than it did it before...I read this week that guitar sales are way down from 10 years ago... I think this insane price hiking is exactly why. 10 years ago, you could buy an American made Strat or Tele for $800-900 all day long. Now, that same guitar is $1400-1500.

Not my post. I copied it from some one else. I like it myself. It is just the way they feel.This guitar has a "tuned port" to minimize feedback.
Before you finish your final assessment, try playing the guitar in person to create a more accurate opinion. I plan to this for myself.
