    The La Cabronita may have that Filter-Tron, but that thang is MUEY FUERTE!!!!!""

        Anyway, one last question. In the 80's, it seemed that Fender had quite a few stats loaded with Kahler tremolos: Spyders (licensed Floyds) and vintage 2-point trems with fine tuners & brass rollers (couldn't find the name... sorry). Why did Fender stop using Kahler trems as stock hardware? I know the company stopped working on trems in the 90s, but have begun again in recent years. Any models expected to come out Kahler loaded?
        No worries! All good! I just think that any comparison things are kinda childish myself. There's room for everybody.

        Don't know about that time period really. No Kahlers are planned.

                          3) Slab style is warmer, round lam is brighter. It's all good, just need to take that into account when building the instrument. Slab board on a lighter body is going to sound woofy...and if you're looking for mids and highs, you're gonna miss it.

                          thank you, Mike...much appreciated.

                          Btw...that Woodstock guitar story is cool.
