    Default Fender Now Selling Necks and Bodies online

    FMIC has taken an unusual step in debuting some new products in their growing Online Store -- prefinished bodies and prefinished necks with Fender Decals affixed.

    Previously, you would have thought that after Fender stopped this about 10 years ago through their retail dealers that they would never again stray into "partscaster" territory. But here they all are:

    Well, spank my butt and call me Sally. I can't believe it either. However, you see Stratosphere doing this on eBay and I assume they are doing well with it because prices keep going up. A few years ago you could get American Standard necks for $300 and now they are $500. Why not just get them from Fender for $500. Booyah! With guitar sales falling off they must be getting creative. Good for them.
    I'm not sayin' that, I'm just sayin'......

    Well, butter my butt and call me Biscuit! That's really good news. Finally, a corporate decision that I applaud, I don't see that kind of action too much these days. Way to go, Fender!

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
