Wrong again. It's definitely rattling when knocked, but only with the strings at proper tension. I haven't adjusted it as it's got the proper relief, but if it doesn't behave properly, I'll have to look into repairing/replacement.

But for now, it's not horrible and can't be heard through the amp. It's just one of those things. Like the varying bass tone in the descending lines in Psycho. It nags the hell out of you, but you're not bothered enough to throw a tantrum over it.

Thanks James. I'll get the book next time I need something from Amazon.

I like the new offset line! Might hit up guitar center this weekend to mess with one. Never played a short scale guitar before though. Seems like they're very reasonably priced - $500 is definitely a sweet spot

With the machine heads removed, I didn't hear anything when I knocked it with my hand. Tried shaking it as well, but there wasn't any noise. So it's either just barely rattling, or it was the machine heads.

Like a mini BruCaster. Don't like the shape tbh prefer the mustang/duosonic look. I am into a short scale fender, which is odd as I dislike the 24.75" scale on a LP. Guess I have different expectations from a sortie, but I do like them with 11's.

Plus, Adrian Below and David Byrne innit.

A jazzmaster the same colour as that duosonic would be very nice, even though it's a terrible colour.


Also, a nice demo of coal tone


Hadn't heard of that T-Rex pedal before, but I want one because it can Stonehenge

Speaking of jazzmasters, I think they just released this as well.

https://www.themusiczoo.com/collecti...cean-turquoise

and yes, now that I look at it, it doesn't look like irn bru at all. maybe if you made a milkshake out of one, but that's probably not a good idea.

But then there was that guy that used irn bru to marinate pork, so who knows.

Jaicen, I think I figured out the problem.

There is apparently a retainer below the 7th fret, which is to prevent the skunk stripe from being blown out. I'd imagine that is what's rattling, as the rattle is only coming from the center of the neck, and... it wasn't too successful in doing its job.

So it probably needs to be adjusted. Not going to attempt it myself though - it requires removing the inlay:

Makes sense, looks like a relatively easy fix too odd design though, I've never seen that before.

Yeah it's a bit odd. I'm just trying to decide now... since there is a fair bit of damage on the back, which would more than likely require a refinish, would it still be worth it?

I could just get one of these, but it'll bug me that the headstock isn't the same color, and it doesn't have the abalone inlays

http://shop.fender.com/en-US/parts/n...993200921.html

The ideal solution would be having Fender make a correct spec'd neck (which shouldn't be difficult at all) but I don't think that's something they usually do.

What's special about this one?? Must have missed that.

And bloody hell, that is an expensive factory made neck, not sure id lay down 450 for that.

I think the neck is more trouble than its worth, unless it has some rarity or sentiment attached.

Went to the local GC. They don't have the new offset line yet :/ Tried the Strats again, and while I really like the soft-V neck, the ones that had that neck were heavily-lacquered. I much prefer the satin necks

Also I saw a Aerodyne Jazz Bass so I had to try it. First time touching a bass, the string spacing threw me off, but that particular bass is so nice. I might save up for it before a Strat now.

James, have you looked into The Stratosphere? They pull brand new guitars apart to and sell separate parts, might be cheaper than buying a brand new tele neck from Fender: https://stratosphereparts.com/necks/

Nothing special. It's just an older U.S. standard neck, but with a black headstock w/ chrome logo. Different inlay material as well.

I'd imagine the replacement would be just as good (or better). With the exception of the newer style finish, I don't think there would be any other difference besides the above.

And yeah, not sure if that's because of the name or what, but they charge $200 for the MIM equivalent, which seems like a fairly decent price.

Which is why I won't buy from them. And even if they're cheaper and the parts are genuine, I'd rather get it directly from Fender.

I'm going to see if I can special order the correct spec neck from Fender. There really are only two differences, and I don't see why they wouldn't be able to make a new one.

I see. I respect that. Is there a reason for wanting it directly from Fender as opposed to Warmoth like the IRN Strat though? Did you not like the Warmoth stuff?

I was looking at Status' website and I saw these. Probably Chris' Glastonbury Globalist guitar right?

No the warmoth stuff is fine, but if the (mostly) correct replacement is available direct from Fender, then it makes more sense to go with that.

And that's a standard model as far as I'm aware.
