[QUESTION] Does anyone have a Fender Duo Sonic?

I know a guy who wants to sell one of the reissued orange ones to me for $300. They retail for $450-500. Made in Mexico.

They look really cool to me and sound good, single-coil and all.

Are they really that different than the Mustang? Anyone have one?

Any thoughts?

[DISCUSSION] Fender Custom Shop have announced a line of Esquires built from salvaged wood from the Hollywood Bowl. Thoughts?

Just saw this: http://enmoreaudio.com/fender-have-built-a-small-batch-of-esquires-made-from-the-bench-seats-of-the-hollywood-bowl/

What does everyone reckon? They look pretty cool, but jesus 12 grand! I'd prefer a vintage Strat or Tele for that price

[DISCUSSION] Axe8 and The Helix.

I searched the subreddit and most of the discussions are over 100 days old so I wanted to ask about this after more technology updates. I'm seriously debating the two and would just like to hear the pros and cons from people who have experience with them. As of now it seems that Axe8 has better tones and the Helix is way easier to use but I am extremely uneducated on these units outside of YouTube reviews. Any help would be great, thanks.

Help finding tuning key

I have a Rogue SX100B 4 sting bass. The D and G tuning keys cracked and I know they will break off soon.

I want to replace them but can't find them.

Reviews tell me the keys break a lot, so maybe I should order a higher quality key. Instead of a direct replacemt.

I'd be happy with any help.

[DISCUSSION] Outside of the big names (Gibson, Martin, Taylor… etc) what are some brands of electrics and acoustics that you believe don’t get enough credit?

Also, does anyone own anything by Vintage? I'm curious about their Historic line of acoustics. Hard to find info on.
