    For Sale SOLD

    My favorite Tele I ever had was a Highway One blonde with the ALNICO IIIs and it was just a really really good solid guitar.

    I’m considering it. I don’t need to. But I am.

    Is this with the ALNICO III? I can’t remember if they switched after 2005 or if they were first.

    Did Fender Underestimate Demand for the AV II ‘61 Stratocaster?

    I am super tempted to just say forget it and grab a LPB in stock. But then I think don’t you like it as much as fiesta red but the guitar sounds so good!

    Did Fender Underestimate Demand for the AV II ‘61 Stratocaster?

    That makes a lot of sense. You’re right. And, I’ve been tempted to just go for a ‘73 they have in stock right now because in the online video reviews, personally, I think the ‘73 amazing! Some cognitive dissonance occurs when I think ok I can get that roughly 15% off or look for a vintage one...

    Did Fender Underestimate Demand for the AV II ‘61 Stratocaster?

    I preordered a fiesta red and don’t really have any idea when it will come in (maybe 2023). I’ve noticed that there are plenty of other ‘57s in the wild as well as the other models. I think there don’t seem to be too many ‘77 telecaster customs either. I’m just impatient lol.

    Extremely HNGD.....

    Happy birthday!!! I have no idea when I’ll get mine. I ordered online from a store out of state. I checked with a local shop out of curiosity and they said July 2023.

    Fender American Vintage II Stratocasters

    Thank you! I’m very curious to hear them. I’ve preordered a fiesta red 61 and just have to play the waiting game.

    Fender American Vintage II Stratocasters

    Ok this makes me feel better about my order. I had bought a set of CS ‘69s for a Hardtail strat that I had but ended up selling it and still have the pickups in the box untouched. I hated for them to go to waste so considered putting them in there. I have the pure vintage 59s in another...

    Just played a few of the new American Vintage 2 guitars

    Be careful. These first-run purple fiesta reds may be worth something in a year or two! 🤣

    Just played a few of the new American Vintage 2 guitars

    Sounds [/MEDIA] Sounds great to me!! Definitely a difference vs the ‘57 demos I’ve heard. Seems representative of a slightly (although less than later years) scooped 60s strat tone with some oomph. I’ve returned guitars for lesser issues than the body seam and I sometimes wish I had waited...

    I am now debating between the fiesta red and a 57. I can get a blonde 57 a lot sooner than the others though.

    Noooo!! This can’t be! I just ordered a fiesta red and I’d send it back if it looked like that. Need to see if I can change my order real quick!

    New Fender American Vintage II ‘61 Strat pickups. ALNICO V or III?

    That’s what I thought, too. I’m guessing Sweetwater has the wrong information listed.

    New Fender American Vintage II ‘61 Strat pickups. ALNICO V or III?

    Does anyone know if the new Pure Vintage ‘61 pickups on the new Strats are ALNICO V or III? I’ve seen Sweetwater list them as III but that’s the only place I’ve seen it mentioned.

    This is making me lean towards grabbing a shell pink AO while I still can.
