Speaking of Rosewood......

Recommended Posts

I was looking at those earlier but they don't state what kind of RW is being used...For that price I'd want Brazilian or Madagascaran...But since they don't state it, my guess would be East Indian RW..(still great RW none the less)

That Strat is stunning....I agree about the decals (dumb move)....And that Tele Big Kahune posted.....Amazing..

 

An Epi forum member built one.....Maybe I should contract with Retro !!!!!!!

What on Earth are Fender doing?

 

The rosewood Tele is, and always has been, gorgeous but a three-tone sunburst Strat with white plastic and a solid rosewood neck just looks plain Wrong.

 

With a rosewood body and black plastic then Yes; even with a rosewood-stained alder/ash body and black plastic then Yes; but 3-tone s/b and white plastic??? No.

 

Very Ugly.

 

IMHO.

hey that rosewood is more than 6 mm thick..why arent fender being raided?

 

Fish and Wildlife DID show up to raid Fender......They were told that "Public Tours" were no longer being allowed,

 

and that only employees were allowed to enter....So F & W said, " Oh, O.K., sorry." and left..........[flapper] [flapper] [flapper]

You beat me to it, I'd like to pick one up too but they're scarce.

 

Scarce is right.

 

I was onto one on fleaBay last week and lost it at the end. Hate that. - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fender-Rosewood-Telecaster-extremely-collectable-excellent-condition-/200655264066?pt=Guitar&hash=item2eb7fc5942#ht_500wt_1413
