  • Leo's Greatest Mistake



    Undoubtedly this was Leo's most problem-plagued invention. In terms of comfort it's at least better than a Telecaster, but it's inferior to the Tele, Jaguar, and Jazzmaster due to:


    • Inferior, almost unusable vibrato system with no subtlety
    • "Third wheel" middle pickup
    • A truly terrible control layout, with no tone control for the bridge pickup, no way to select neck and bridge pickups, and a volume knob so close to the strings that you have to adapt your playing technique to avoid accidentally turning yourself down
    • The weakest, most anemic clean tone of any Fender guitar
    • Incorrect string angle behind the bridge (a problem shared by the Tele)


    Discuss.

        I'm sure their sales figures would disagree.

        I love mine even with the hang ups (don't like the 7.25" radius).

        PRS Single Cut Trem
        PRS CE22
        Fender CIJ Strat

          ... And yet somehow they appear on hundreds of millions of hit records. Go figure.

            Great, then we can agree that Thriller is the greatest album of all time, given its sales figures.

              No, no! That's not how you troll! Who do you think you are? J.J. Pistols? Not after two months, my friend. You don't shoot the wad on Michael Jackson right out of the gate. You gotta' work up to it! Start slowly.... Since two of us posted similar comments: something like "Do you two know each other?" You've got to build the irritation! Ugh... rookies!

                  He's been here longer than a couple months, my friend

                  He just had to tweak his user name for his presence on HCEG.

                        Leo didn't have anything to do with that guitar! Look at the tuners and headstock truss rod access!

                            I figured his biggest mistake was selling the company.
