Most Fender deluxes will run you, what, 1200? You can find a great Marcus Miller for 700, Why? MMs play so smoothly and have a great versatile sound so I must be missing something. Someone tell me what Fender is thinking charging so little for these great instruments? Is it purely a Japan stigma thing? Are the electronics subpar, cheap, crap? Is the wood used to make them from Indian burial sites? Was he linked romantically to Fender's mom? Steal Fender's girlfriend? Remove the tag from Fender's pillow? What's up?
