That's just your opinion. Nels thought it looked pretty familiar. I think he's a better judge.
I can’t believe someone would pay $5k for an old one.
They were half that just a few years ago.
They aren’t Strats.
Can't argue that one. I already made that point many pages ago.
If he can fairly judge by pics on the internet why can’t anybody else?
So you don’t think they look that much alike, but Fender copied it. Got it.
I agree, but that's what they're going for. You can blame Nels and J Mascis for that...
He does own the copied guitar. People can surely judge fairly by looking at the photos, but do they?
That's not what I said, and it's not clever either.
Have you seen the other photos here where Fender has done that same exact wear on other heavily relic custom shop guitars?
You're right. We don't KNOW that he wasn't making a joke. In fact, many of us have conceded that there is much here that we don't KNOW. Yet, you seem to KNOW everything you post, including @kwicked being "angry". That post didn't come across as angry at all. How'd you get "angry" from that one?
Well, he was blowing that instagram post so far out whack, I thought there was a good reason for it. Maybe not, though.
Arm wear is pretty common, but that one was eerily similar.
I think it's a bit of a stretch - yes, kind of a similar wear, in a spot where the wear would happen for most people. On a non-customized production instrument.
I also always thought he started playing Jazzmasters because of Sonic Youth and such.
Closed for review.
