Released at NAMM this weekend. Really digging this.
Super cool. From the pictures of EJ playing it, I was wondering if they’d included the back contour; there can’t be much room under that F hole. Looks like they pulled it off!
I always suspected Fender was just a G&L knock off.
They did, that was an EJ requirement apparently. It's a alder top onto an alder body. There was a good lookover in one of the Thomenn NAMM videos. I don't like the colors but it's a pretty interesting idea.
I dig the antique white. Any definitive word on when these hit the streets and price? I thought I saw 2/10 somewhere and the prices I've seen are $1999 or $1199.
Lovely color, but a very strange (awful) Stratocaster, imo.
It seems as though it has a centerblock, and has hollow sides, unlike the chambered bodies that Warmoth and others make.
When is the American Professional version coming out?
Anderson, G&L, and Warmoth already have these, right?
Nice guitar. I might have to check one out. I have an EJ, maple neck version. I might like this one as much.
By the way, Fender had the strat, the tele, and a tele with F-holes before those other companies ever existed.
I actually wished Fender would offer it in Dakota Red, like EJ’s prototype.
The crap? It's not being offered in the red? Sad....I thought that looked sweet.
I really think something is missing to reach that classy level EJ strats usually get. Like a binding on the f hole. Dunno...
This is more attractive IMHO
Additional coverage -
That's a damn nice guitar and I want one.
Considering how much wood is removed for the trem and all the pickup/electronics cavities anyways, and that it still has all the typical Strat contours, I don't really see the point I guess...there really can't be much hollow space in that guitar.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's interesting, and I'd like to try one out. But unless you're playing it unplugged at home, I don't see any tonal benefits of a semi-hollow Strat. I mean, I can't even hear a difference between a normal Tele and a Thinline at gig volumes, and I feel like there's more of a difference there than with the Strats.
cool guitar but the colors are BORING. I never cared for Fender "vintage white" aka banana yellow. May I suggest Sherwood Green or Seafoam Green. Give us VIVID COLOR please Eric!!
They “cracked the code,”
Man I cannot figure out how to make a thin line strat. There’s just this code I can’t seem to crack.
Hey...let’s route an F-hole into a top and glue it onto a back.
By Jove, you’ve cracked it!
