I've lurked the forum and i can't find anything to my questioning needs, so apologies if this has been done before. I've recently had a hankerin' to get a hold of a 5'er, and got somewhat hooked on this Deluxe MIM. Theyve got this labor day thing goin on that i'm sure you're all aware of, and its gone down $200! so i've decided to go down and get it on monday. but first, some questions. i've heard mixed things about the bridge, what's the real difference in playability/sound between this bridge, and the MIA bridge? personally i actually like the sound of the MIM i tried over the MIA they had. Any others agree with me when it comes to this? and these tuners seem different, theyre not the generic fender kind, and dont have the same look either, on guitarcenter it shows this, but on the fender website this isn't even an option, what's going on there? one more that might sound rediculous, how do i know right off that it is an 08, do they even sell older models new at gc?
