There's a LPB Affinity.
i was watching another demo for this guitar earlier today and
this series has my attention!
Thanks for the review. Not clicking your video, though. It seems like you are just here for more clicks.
Sorry, I really don't need clicks... I remember the days when I was looking on YouTube for every single video possible about my "dream guitar", simply because all guitar stores were far away, and I couldn't get my hands on that guitar to try it out myself. So this video is for those who are in the same situation. I don't care about clicks, really.
This thread was lying dormant for about 4 months and a new member with his first ever post resurrects it with his video. Many people do this on many forums and it's obvious you're doing it, so why do you lie about it? On many other forums, you'd be banned right away for going there just to peddle your videos.
We try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, including you.
Just buy used and you will get your moneys worth - plus iv'e never met a guitar I didn't want to upgrade!
Love the colors. Seems the weight is high on the bodies I see for sale. That probably reflects the availability of light alder overall though.
Exactly. And this doesn't help Fender from the mounting competition for other imported brands like Vintage and Cort who are really knocking it out of the park lately on fender style guitars
I heard that name changes were simply a method if simplifying the 2018 line.
Bumping stuff for vid views is lame. I will give you the benefit of the doubt.
Good news about Fender Player Series:
I played one recently that was really awesome. It was a Strat with Floyd Rose, which has the HSS pup configuration.
The tones were great, everything from stratty, glassy clean to blissfully overdriven bridge HB rhythm and lead stuff.
It felt great to play and the build quality was outstanding. This particular one was Tidepool blue, which looked good in person.
People expecting revolutionary advancements or any price reductions are delusional. The former because the Strat was nearly perfect out of the chute and did most of its logical evolution long ago. The latter because economics.
And regarding advancement, I think people have their heads in the sand, glossing over some legit improvements. Two-point trems, alnico pups, FR availability, tone control on the SC bridge pup...that's all meaningful stuff.
I've also sampled the American Performer Strat and personally prefer the MIM Player Series.
Look, I am not here to crown the Player Series as the greatest thing ever. I just think that it's what it's supposed to be, and costs what it's supposed to cost.
Well my 2017 Standard Series is just amazing - I had a hard time believing that one year later the lineup quality became that bad because of a few design tweaks.
Guess @Overt1 will really get pissed this time. This time this zombie had been dead for a year before getting bumped by a newbie.
Are you referring to a post that got deleted? There was no new post before yours.
Yessir! I certainly am. Very touchy new member from Pennsylvania who complained to the mods about my post. Above.
He actually made two posts then deleted them.
Just bought a 2018 MIJ Classic 50s Stratocaster. I haven't cracked the lid yet to see what kind of pots and switch are in it, but fit and finish wise, it's the nicest guitar I have (and I have a LOT of guitars). The neck/fretwork is just about perfect, and the neck pocket fit is so good you couldn't fit a piece of tissue paper between neck and body.
There are a lot of older MIM Fenders still out there. The deals aren’t as good as they used to be, but I got one that needed a little work for a little over $300 recently.
I played a Player Plus-Top Strat a few weeks ago and instantly got GAS... I don't know what all this "bad news" is supposed to be about. It felt and sounded miles better than any MIM Standard that I've ever played. I guess some people just don't like change.
