Was checking these out on Youtube and the World Wide Web : ) - They seem pretty useful to me and was thinking of getting one, but the more I looked into them the more I didn't want one. They sound pretty good though, but some of the tech inside just scares me off. - First thing I noticed was the price. $2k. No thanks. I can think of a lot of other stuff for that. - Second thing I noticed is Fender just giving me bad vibes again. They patented the sound hole itself, as if a rounded edge on a sound hole is a big invention. Well, apparently it is because they got a patent pending out of it. They call it a sound hole with a "waterfall" design, meaning rounded edges. It just leaves a bad vibe on me. Oh, well, my problem, not anyone else's. - The third thing that was the deal breaker for me was when I saw the PCB inside the cavity. That's a deal breaker. No thanks, want nothing to do with it. Not because it's a PCB, but because it's built-in obsolescence. This is a computer in the shape of a guitar, not a guitar. - That thing is scary looking and I don't want a paperweight when it breaks. Like every company, I'll bet when the PCB breaks there will be no support for it, because the parts and PCB's will no longer be available. How convenient. - There's a 2 year warranty on it so that's pretty good, but not $2k good. It's a guitar that's meant to last 2 years. I normally don't think this way, but with computer stuff it's the way to think about it. - Ths is the same reason I never went with a Variax. - To bad, they seem very useful and sound pretty good. I wonder how they sound with a normal piezo and no insane PCB thing inside. Just regular replacable parts and such. Probably still pretty good I imagine, so if the price ever comes down on them I might check them out for that reason. - This isn't a rant about Fender's Acoustasonic. I actually think it seems pretty cool and still entertain the idea of getting one someday. Here's Trogly's video of demo of it. Seems pretty cool other than that PCB.The PCB is around 11:10 in the video.
