    My Strat clone has the trem bridge blocked, as it should. :whistle:

    On lunch break, just watched a demo video. Main difference is by leaving the mod knob all the way on the B setting you can easily flip between clean and dirty electric tones with the blade switch 1 and 2 positions. Other than that, the only real difference I saw was they’re calling the Tele “parlor” acoustic setting a “compact” acoustic on this one.

    Glad the Acoustasonic line is doing so well that they doubled down on it but don’t see much to gain in having both. :Beer:

    It says: "Available for Pre-order"

    What kind of mindless tautology is "Pre-order"?

    I mean, either you order something or you don't. You don't order something and then order it again, do you?

    They do that so you can bring it with you when you pre-board your airplane.

    Believe it or not, with my recent acquisitions, I’m finding it quite easy to resist this offering. Ask me again after the newness of what I have wears off. ;):Beer:

    I'm torn on these.
    The demo really makes me want one but, I'm not sure why.

    Notice more and more manufacturers are doing this. So you preorder put down the deposit, and it gives them an idea of how many to make, some $ to make them with, or worst case scenario whether to make them at all.
