I just like the word Cabronita. Mostly because it's a swear word in my language.

It's like a French luthier making a guitar called an Asshole.

"Why don't you ever play that guitar?" "She's an asshole." Laughing

The "jazzmaster pro" is hella grody, look at that negative space between the pots. Fuck! There was plenty of space to put the jack on that plate, and with all that space there is room for mods but is it not a custom shop? Shouldn't those mods already be in place? Calling it a jazzmaster pro is bumming me out, if anything calling it a jagmaster pro would be more suitable but would still bum me out.

Haha! My thoughts exactly. In my opinion appending anythithing with "pro" suggests it's anything BUT pro.

Also, it's stupid looking everywhere.

$6,500 for a single pickup jagmaster. Nice one, Fender. I'm sure calling it a Jazzmaster will mean you sell tons of those.

I like how they didn't even bother to make a new template for the control plate, just drilled two out of the three holes leaving a huge gap in the middle.

Still over priced. They should just make a shortscale/offset road worn series.

Pricing a reliced replica at the market cost of the original guitar. Genius. ^^

Jazzmaster pro? More like a jagmaster without a pickup and a control plate. Lol. These are all terrible. I'm sorry... Haha.



I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

How Henry Juszkiewicztic of Fender to feel so happy about launching that mess.

Screw limited production numbers (if not my monotonous re-poast). At $599 or not, I'm way more attracted to THIS uncluttered new MIM creation than the above.

The Special range is the best thing Fender are doing by a country mile. They're also the cheapest US guitars. Go figure.

What is the special range? I don't recall. Plus the highway ones are/were pretty cheep. Good quality too.

American Special Series

Check them out. Way better than the US Standards. My mate has the Tele. It has Texas Special pickups and a vintage style bridge. The neck is SUPERB. Rolled edges so it's super comfy.

Nice one! Best fender by miles these days. If I had the money I'd've ordred one myself. I usually hate the bigger radius on modern fender stuff but the special series necks are so well shaped they don't feel off to me at all.
