Just curious - has anyone heard, played or bought one of the new Fender "Strato-Sonic" guitars?
Chambered mahagony Strat body w/P90 equivalents - the idea sounds interesting. Musician's Friend has them for $999.
My tax return money is burning a hole in my pocket...

I didn't have time to plug it in, but I played one at Guitar Trader(guitartrader.com). I liked the feel of the neck and fretboard. I think it's a 24 3/4" scale.

...24 3/4", really? That would make it a bit easier to play.
One of the nice things about that length is the reduced string tension...which can translate to using heavier gauge strings for a bit more "tone" without the wear & tear on the fingers.
Thanks for the info,

says 24 3/4 here:
It was mentioned before how this was about the closest Fender to a Gibson SG with P-90's.
for $999 I could find a nice used Gibson . . .

Hi Mike - long time...
Well slap me! I didn't even think of checking out the Fender site.
I know there's probably some good used Gibsons available, but I'm hooked on the Strat body style & feel. The reason this is so tempting is that it's a *complete* chambered guitar - meaning - not something I'd have to put together from parts. I did that a couple years back with components from Warmoth and it wound up to be an expensive experiment with the results being less than hoped/expected.
This is the first Fender guitar that's peaked my interest in quite a while. Haven't decided if I just want a new toy or what.
Thanks for the response,
