Guitar looks retarded as fuck...

Stratocaster Body with a AWFUL Headstock and the stupid Bird Inlays... if you are gonna copy a regular Strat at least use a similar Headstock so that the whole package look coherent.

Or you could buy an EG for 1/3rd of the price for a core model and 1/10th the price for an SE

How long before Fender releases a PRS-shaped guitar with a Strat headstock? Makes about as much sense.

IMO, all PRS with pickguards look terrible. The "normal" models (Custom, CE, Singlecut) look cool, but pickguards just ruin most guitars (except Strats).

I'm less put off by the headstock than I am the incoming dry-hump from what I'm sure will be a ridiculous price.

I mean, it's better than that inline headstock the dude from Anthrax had on one of his guitars.

Dan Spitz and the TMNT PRS, I remember that one.

Someone at Fender must have pissed off Mayer, or else this wouldn't have happened. Of course, the word from Mayer will be the usual, "After a long relationship with Fender I started trying different guitars and PRS just made something that went above and beyond anything I've ever played."

When he left Fender, he said the company wasn't what it was when he first joined. So it wasn't exactly the friendliest terms, it seems.

I've seen him with PRSes before, and I saw him on TV with a pink Jackson Soloist that looked pretty awesome (how could it not though, really?). But yeah, I'd rather get a Custom Shop Strat than this PRS thing personally.

I like it in silver more than I do in white, but it still just looks odd to me.

I guess I'm the odd guy out, since I don't mind it. Plus the PRS headstock will help it stay in tune. It would have been better if they didn't reverse it, though.

Nothing against PRS, they make great guitars, but I don't know why a guy who is clearly looking for a Fender knockoff went with a company known for something totally different. It's not like there aren't any brands that specialize in high-end Fenders. Did Suhr, Tom Anderson, and G&L not return his calls?

My suspicion is that none of them were a big enough platform for him.

That guitar looks like someone broke the neck on their Strat and grabbed the first neck they could find to replace it.

They didn't put enough zeros at the end of their offer...

I just want a bunch of DC3's, partially because so many bands in our genre play fender style guitars :lol:
