Interesting experience over the past days, couple of folk trolling some of my Fender posts on Reverb, and FB….and even to my own website…claiming “This is not right, “that is not right”, “colour too bright for a 60s Guitar”. “Neck not worn enough, or wear pattern with the body inconsistent”. “Fake guitar” “Dodgy”….Oddly, on these public forums every body appears to be somehow a bit of a guitar expert, especially in what looks like Fender land. Fender guitars were a bit like Lego, parts put together in the factory with bolts and nuts from parts stored in buckets and boxes…so every guitar is really a parts-caster, and has been from early 1950s till today. It’s hard to understand where the ferocity comes from with some ppl who can judge a guitar’s authenticity from a digital picture.
