I own a 2012 jeff allen signed American standard Hand rubbed ash stratocaster ,thing is Fender says its a hsh model by the serial#. Mine is #41 and hss with a seymour duncan single slot humbucker .and 2 single coils with a special tsa case. why does fender not recognize this config in their database. also what is the value of this axe . i paid 899 used.thx for any assistance you can provide.
That’s a great price for one.
They came in limited number (if memory serves correctly, 50 each) of
Did you buy it used? The original HSH was a Fender Twin Head Humbucker in the neck and bridge, with a Fender single in the middle… Perhaps someone switched out the pickguard and pickups?
Let me know. I am curious to see…
OK. As used, it is clear that it has had its pickguard and electronics modified. Fender only shipped these with Fender pups and wiring, and they were either SSS or HSH (large humbucker-single-large humbucker).
As to value, I can only offer a personal subjective answer: If it still had the original pups and wiring and case, I’d easily pay $800-$1000 for it if I were in the market for one. They play GREAT and sound great.
Since it does not have the original specially-selected wiring and pups, I’d say that it’s at a top of $800, likely to be in the $700-$800 range with case.
I hope this helps. Thank you for writing me!
I just purchased the same mobile preamp through amazon, however it did not come with the software. I have been trying to figure out what driver/software to download in order for it to be recognized as a device. I currently use StudioOne and im starting to think that maybe that’s the reason I haven’t been successful. I have Windows 7..just hoping you may be able to help me somehow.. Thanks!
Thank you for replying on my site… Could you tell me which pre-amp of which you are speaking? Is it the M-Audio?
Jim of Vivid Peace
Yes it’s the M-Audio USB..
The MobilePre often doesn’t require software or drivers because it’s (original spec/old) USB native friendly…
However, if a particular piece of software doesn’t see it, you might be able to find a driver here at the Avid site:
I hope this helps. Thank you for writing!
