This is like the Ibanez thread about years except with fender. I read in that thread that fender has some good and bad years of production. What years are good what are bad?
I say 50-70's were good, New stuff is crap... Sadly Unless is signature, Eric Johnson, Yngwie, Clapton.
'54 'till 65 were the pre-CBS Fender days, those were gooduns.
ive heard the 50th anniversary series isn't great quality.. they're cheap with wood. leave to much space under the pick guard.
