  Y'know, you could probably just get that plug replaced by a local nerd with intermediate soldering skills...  though if I were in your shoes I'd be nagging Fender/Aurisonics for an all-expenses-paid do-over.  Kind of not cool what they did there.


Haha. True, but that means more time away from them. Im thinking about just letting it ride until it cuts out completely on the right side and then send them in. Damn dilemma.

I'm planning on picking those up soonish. 


the thread and have been helpful for me, since I'm familiar with the tastes of the initial group of reviewers. the reference comparisons are good. very sweet value for the asking price.

If I can get them down to 150 during the sale with coupons I'm probably going to bite... it will hurt my wallet but... I'm a sucker for good deals and that seems like a good one

yeah if you can find one at that price it'd be a pretty darn good deal. there's plenty of other hybrids I've tried costing 50 to 100$ more, and they might offer slight resolution and timbre, but the tuning is really well done. Very very seducing.

Luckily my set are still going strong :ph34r: but I wonder has anyone here tried/compared the AAW Q as a potential eventual replacement?

Tell her your situation and I am sure she will get back to you soon. My situation was heightened because I sent my Rockets for a fix in December and when I got them bak in March, the problem I had with the left channel still persisted. Good luck  =)

Well, about a month ago I finally got to reach a Fender representative, after some serious time spent searching for a way to contact them from Europe and get my faulty wiring problem sorted out.
 
Salesperson asks me where I bought the Rockets, I reply promptly.
 
Since then, absolutely nothing, and my Rockets are back in the drawer. Pretty disappointing.
 
This is probably the very last time I buy a Fender/Aurisonics/whatever product. I'm done wasting my time.
