FDP Forum / Fender Custom Shop / Actually willing to sell off my Cunetto 60's Relic for the new 2014 '56 Heavy Relic Strat!

I know I can make one of these if I wanted to. But I can't fight that GAS attack over the new 2014 '56 Heavy Relic Stratocaster. Only wished they offered a heavy relic in the '64 Strat for this year.

I like the fact that it already comes with the functional 5 way switch, RWRP middle pickup, and the flatter radius. Normally, I'm not a huge fan of the V neck profiles, but I might be willing to set that preference aside.

I've been saving my '97 60's Relic Strat for exchange for something cool. I've been on the fence for either this, or a Gretsch Duo Jet. So little time.

Anyone else feel the same way?

One of the biggest mistakes I've ever made was selling my Cunetto Strat.

If it's any consolation, the Fender TM (and more recent) models are more vintage-correct than the Cunetto-era Strats and Teles.

But bottom line is a great guitar is a great guitar.
