    Assuming the truth of this narrative, it'd be very ironic considering Jackson is a Fender brand.

    Maybe John doesn't know that. He just commissioned a new custom Charvel too. Owned by Fender too.

    Like I said, John plays whatever the hell he wants.

    I'd have a hard time rationalizing a PRS strat at 2 grand or more when the Fenders go from 499.00 to 1100.00 bucks brand new off the wall. No, they don't have PRS cache, but they have Fender cache and they sound just about the same, and in some instances of pure luck better. I think its a stray from what PRS is actually about.

    $2k would be competitive with Fender American Elite series and Suhr. PRS would be every bit the equal of either.

    It would have to fall into the $1600 or under range to be competitive. Anything more than that and the only ones buying would be the PRS faithful.

    The point to me isn’t it competing with price with anything else. I buy PRS for one main reason, and that is I like spending my dollars on product that was designed by a guy that is still alive and well. I haven’t bought a fender strat yet because I’m waiting on this guitar. Sure, I’ve had other fenders and Gibson’s in the past, but all I have now are PRS guitars.

    I didn’t get to meet Leo Fender or Orville Gibson. I’ve met Paul and talked with him on 4 separate occasions. The only alternative that I have seriously considered for a Strat is a Suhr, but I have had one of those in the past, as well. Great great guitar. I just want to wait and see what PRS does with a strat. If we haven’t heard something by February or March, I’ll probably look at Suhr again.

    If this doesn't happen, and you're going to look at something else, be sure to check out Xotic XSC-1 or XSC-2

    Funny...John Suhr hinting at a shorter scale model on the Tone Talk podcast and PRS teasing us with a strat type.

    I have an American Standard strat, but am seriously eyeing a Suhr throwback and dipping my toe that way.

    I have a CU24 and an SC245 that aren’t going anywhere soon.
