Musicians Friend brand cases are good cases for a great price.

Got my Sunburst with Maple Fretboard in today.... WOW! Buy these up if you can find them. They are great guitars. Really compare well with the Japanese Squiers in terms of build quality. Probably better in tone with the exception of the JV and SQ models.

I'm going to go ahead and try posting a picture of my Pro-Tone. No spectacular modifications about it other than the set of GFS Jimi pups and the knobs of course.

Oh and sorry for the timestamp. It's not even the right date and not my camera anyhow. Wish I knew the thing popped up before the photo was taken.

Hope it worked.

Mental: I'm curious. You and I have the same oly white Pro Tone. Mine always looks a lot whiter in pictures than it is. Mine has aged to a nice eggnog/antique white. Has yours done the same or is it still oly white like it shows in your pics?

Well I bought my Pro-Tone about a year ago maybe. When I bought it it was the eggnog color and if it hadn't I may not have bought it so quickly. So I'm going to have to assume it used to be olympic white and then aged a nice bit. I think it's beautiful the color it is now personally. In the picture, thanks to the flash, it's whiter than it is.

Glad to see people chiming in. My Pro Tone's are quickly becoming my favorite guitars.

I have a '97 Fat Tele Pro Tone I got as NOS in about 1999. I actually prefer it to my MIA Standard Telecaster (also about a '97). The ash body is much lighter and I prefer the pickups- the Pro tone has a twangier quality- and I like the fat mellowness of the humbucker, though it does squeel at certain volumes. Probably needs shielding, or maybe potting. Not a big deal. The tuners are the most solid of all my guitars, with the exception of my Reverends. Fit and finish are immaculate. It sounds great used for slide.

the one on the right

Well I don't know what it sounds like compared to the other two but it is definitely the best looking. : )

Hey, let me bump this 8 year old thread. I've got a Transparent Sapphire blue Pro Tone Strat. Haven't looked in the case in years so I don't know if it's green or not but I'd always thought of it as turquoise. Terrific guitar if not over-the-top gaudy.

I had a Transparent Red (Crimson?) Pro Tone that I bought off ebay. I had it for a while, played it some, but ended up trading it in at a local music store on a Gibson SG Classic with P-90s. No complaints on the Pro Tone though....I'd buy another one if the price was right. :)

I just sprung for a 97 Cort made Pro Tone in sunburst. It has a rosewood fingerboard and a satin neck that feels great. The pickguard is pearloid and the pick ups are alnico. The pots are 500k but sound fine through my Blues Deluxe amp. I modified the tone control so the middle and bridge pickup are both on the bottom knob. The tuners had been swapped out for some from a USA Fender that fit the original holes. The body is figured ash that look beautiful - I think two pieces. It looks new with zero dings or scratches. Damn nice guitar.

Not long after this thread was originally created I bought my wife one. Trans white over ash. It's a lefty, or I probably would have played it a bunch myself by now!
