    The article summed it up for me; as soon as I saw the OP’s post I thought how it looked like the Pawn Shop Series from a few years ago, just with a MIA price tag.

    The Thinline is the only one that really does anything for me. Even then it could do with a Bullet truss rod nut to compliment the look.

    Seems like Fender don’t want my Cashish this week; getting rid of the AVS and now these haha.

    Is “Adjuto-Matic Bridge” a typo? Adjusto-Matic sounds loads better, unless that’s a copyrighted term of course. Never heard of it myself though. :lol:

    "Tuna-matic" would sound fishy.

    No too sure about Canada but, due to our import taxes and VAT, then allowing for FX rates ... £ here often translates directly to US$ for new gear.

    I figure since the Jazzmaster with Tele pickups was the Telemaster, this one should be the Jazzcaster.

    And I dig it! Also dig the Tele shaped Strat!

    I don't know, Joe Naylor may have cause to sue over that one.

    No R&D here. Looks more like someone threw on bunch of parts on a table in the Marketing Dept. :lol:

    Nah, I'd say both are inspired by Gretsch and Rics, the orange finish being a strong nod toward Gretsch. The Super Deluxe Tele looked their finest in black and white a few years ago.

    If I’m just going on aesthetics, these are the only two I like upfront.

    It’s probably more the sunburst mint guard combo anyways. I’m a sucker for that stuff.

    I wonder what Gibsons looks like in this parallel universe.

    Yes, this is the only one that I would be interested in, but there are plenty of other guitars that would be ahead of it in the queue.

    Generally speaking, I like them. Having said that, I'd probably go the partscaster route.

    OK, this is actually really sweet.

    I especially dig the Tele equipped with Jazzmaster components. WANT!
