"Did the value of the FDP LE Strats depreciate like regular off-the-shelf MIA strats?"


I've never heard of one going second hand for under a G, but just because I don't know about it doesn't mean it hasn't happened. I'd bet they hold their value better than a regular American.

They were far better guitars than the stock American Standards and I've never heard of anyone not at least breaking even or making a small profit.

Again, I'm not so interested in hearing from someone who's not interested. What I want to know is who *is* interested.

Chris, I know it's typically against the FAQ's, but it mght be worth cross-posting in at least the strat and misc. forums.

Due to the nature of something like this, folks that aren't necessarily Tele-heads might be interested.

"If you do something along the lines of the MIM Classic Series,"

I'm guessing the center of gravity of Fender production has shifted in this direction in the past 12 years, and away from American...

Maybe. But more interested if we make a less expensive model.

Put me down as a "tentative".

CAR at the full MIA price would be a no-go for me, but if you end up with a different color (Shell Pink, Surf Green, or something along those lines) I'd be much more interested.
And at a lower price point, say in the Road Worn or Baja ballpark, and I'd find a way to get one.

SB,

That pink tele looks like some one glued a type write to the bottom of it.

Probably, but only among our members.

I'm a tentative too. I probably wouldn't go for CAR but if it was a cooler color, who knows?

Could be a moot point as Fender has yet to call me back.

I would be interested...I know Dave's in WI, Wildwood in CO and Music Zoo in NY all deal with small custom batches.

We wouldn't run it through a non-FDP sponsor. But I think the minimums will be too much for us to accomplish.
