something new from Fender
Sorry for me Joe, but I don't see one coming my way any time soon... car or guitar.
"At $33,000, this unique project melding the best of speed and sound built by a Southern California master craftsman commands a princely sum, but this isn’t just any guitar. If you demand the very best in your guitar as you do in your car, and insist on performance with no compromise, your axe beckons."
We can both take comfort in the knowledge that it's not the cost of the guitar that makes the music but the skill of the player. That guitar wouldn't make me sound any better than what I currently play and my ego is well enough contained that it wouldn't allow me to waste the money on something so superfluous even if I could afford it. Same for the car. Just toy's for fat cats that probably couldn't play it all that well either.
I could see both being used as room decorations for a guy like Larry Ellison sprinkling a few on the walls of his man cave's for a chic decor. When so many go without basic necessities of shelter, food, health care, it sadden's me to think about these types of items actually being made available and the types of individuals that would/could spring for them. And, especially with the crises that the world is now facing.
It's a different world now and I can't save it. The problems seem so overwhelming and I so insignificant. So, I'll just stay cloistered under my rock and keep on picking Blues til my time is through.
You hang in there too!
