They've been offering those all along in ADE and the mod shop. Hope they're doing better work this time around.

I think you told me this once already. Don't know why I have a mental block about it. :lol: Would be nice if they just sold the necks as lefty parts.

Nope

Asked the Fender rep for my part of the world, no word on any lefty maple board basses. Transition to Pao Ferro is complete, so any new AM Pro basses coming out will have PF instead of RW in their order code.

Fender just announced a new color - and there are new colors in there I hadn't seen before.
Like, this beauty in Ocean Turquoise!

So the lefties really do come with that idiotic positioning of the headstock logo/model name? :roll:
Why?! They're able to get it right on their standard and American stock models.

With those Maple necks, does Fender (or anybody else) produce it as an 1-piece Maple neck? :?:

I'm looking for one, preferably with straight grain (quarter sawn).. but it's driving me nuts. :shock: Nobody that I could find, makes it out of a single piece of wood.
