You have to wonder what’s going on within Fender these days. Expensive new “Select” Series guitars are introduced one day, only to be followed by some heavy talkin’ Blacktop Series guitars the next and then some really FRESH new Squier models the day after that. One can only assume that last Summer’s record heat-wave in Phoenix got to the marketing department’s heads and got their creative juices flowing.
Further proof of this concept is the new Squier products. Squier keeps coming out with interesting new products for Tele-lovers and this year’s models look to be no exception to this rule. We haven’t received full details yet, but our sources show a cool new Squier Vintage Modified Tele Special being introduced at this year’s Winter NAMM show.
Here’s what we know so far. The Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Special looks to be very special indeed with a classic Tele body and the neck from a Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Neck and Jazzmaster pickups. Pricing looks great too at about a $300 street price.
More details will be provided as we learn more about this guitar.
Another cool new Squier product is a VM “Surf” Strat with Duncan Lipstick Pickups and a pearlized guard. Colors include Sonic Blue, Surf Green and Candy Apple Red. Pricing is that same sweet spot of around $300 street price.
