I'm glad it worked out. Very nice guitar!

I noticed that price increase on all the Fenders to. What is the reason for that? It was not just a little increase it was hundreds of $ overnight.



The price increase Fender initiated is crazy considering the state of the current economy. Gibson had a similar increase however I believe they did it in like 2002.. shortly after 9/11 - credit was flowing and everyone was encouraged to "go buy stuff" to keep the economy moving forward. I therefore don't believe the price increase hurt Gibson's sales. As they say "that was then and this is now", Fender could not have picked a worse time to roll out a large "across the the board" price increase. Credit is tight and most people are simply not buying frivolous items (did I just call a Stratocaster "Frivolous" ? ohmy.gif )

Fender is a privately owned company and therefore not publicly traded (no stock). I know this because I was going to short their stock after reading various posts on music store blogs where lists of people who were ready to pull the trigger on a Fender decided against it.
