Fuck you cunt, I've been thinking about strating it up lately too. Difference being, you can actually afford to buy one.

Cunt.

Don't quote me on this, but I don't think that era of Fender is very good.  Fender, at the time, was owned by a company called CBS...which was really into cost cutting the instruments.
If you want an investment Fender, then get yourself something pre-1965 ;)

I had a quick look on ebay, and nothing there was really over the $1200 mark of that era, apart from one which seemed to be a pretty rare, high end model.

the only thing in common is the slut factor, although that appears to have increased somewhat.... that and her bedspread is a bit of a purple haze.

Still with Haydz... besides, the same jailbait slut with a Caparison or Schecter (for example) guitar would be WAAAAY sexier.

Lol...

I still stand by Fender's being lame... just because old school rock stars played with them, it doesn't make them great... they didn't have the choice of today's more diverse and appealing range of guitars and designs... and 24-fret boards.
