    I like it alot, but it is very different from any other stingray. The eq took some getting used to but I love it for what I use it for. I have flats on it for a more old school sound.

    NICE! I was thinking about putting flats or tapes on mine. What strings are on your BFR? I think mine came with EB flats, but I'm gonna pop on some LaBellas.

    Well, I thought my BFR fretless had GHS Precision flats on it because I think they have purple silks, but I just put some EB cobalt flats on my BFR fretted and noticed they have the same silks so I think that my fretless has the EB cobalts as well. I also might try some labellas on the fretless at some point. Likely the low tension ones.

    I have the regular tension string through the body labellas on my old smoothie and they are great.

    Yes - it is a strictly MIJ limited edition; whatever this means. I already sent an e-mail to Fender in order to get an idea on how limited this edition is. I would guess something between 250 - 500 pieces ( was the same with the Sambora Black Paisley Strat back in 96). I pre-ordered mine at Thomann and as soon as I placed the pre-order it was listed as sold-out. So I assume that they only got one or two.

    By the way - the also launched a limited run of a Strat and a Tele in the same black paisley finish. I was thinking of getting all three but since I also ordered an new Maruszczyk, my budget was somehow limited...

    Got mine from Thomann (sold out already)- I know Musicstore has another one available; I think I also saw one at Andertons but not sure if it was in stock

    I thought that Fender Japan was discontinued - from the sound of this apparently not unless it is NOS.

    True - the regular line was discontinued. They are only doing some special runs...don‘t think that these were NOS as they were just shipped over from Japan.
    On the other hand i did not find any official announcement by Fender.

    That's good - doing 'special' Fenders is what the Japanese do best anyway! :)

    I would even say that any Fender the Japanese do is the best :D

    It's odd that you have the only one that I've seen anywhere.
    My hope is that it is a production model and not a prototype.
    We will soon know for certain when they all start hitting the streets.
