    Its only available for 2018? Damnit, looks like I'm going to have to get it

    Although I'm liking that new "Sonic Red" tele A LOT

    I see Fender's still playing the color game, with some colors only with a maple neck, and some colors only with PF on the Strats and Teles. Boring colors too, no CAR, LPB, Surf green, Sonic or Daphne blue, Fiesta red, Sherwood green, Burgundy Mist, Midnight wine. But what they used to call LPB (which was way too light) they now call Tidepool.

    i kind of agree and totally miss Car Mn which is my favourite. I ve made a thread about colours and 2018 line up.Poll shows that some colours are much more important than other colours. I love new Tidepool, such a deep sea blue. Marketing did good thing expect removeing car mn.

    I thought that might be the case.

    I'm not sure I've even ever fretted the 21st fret on my MIM.

    These threads are always interesting cause there are always plenty of us posting who already have the guitar that is 95% identical to the new one. There's probably almost nothing Fender could put out that would actually make me "replace" my MIM Std. (2016) with something that was similar but marketed as an improvement.

    These new ones are an improvement over mine if I was starting over and had the choice of one or the other. But I already went and put in Alnico 5 pickups in mine and all that so the differences are reduced almost to nothing. I swapped in Lollar pickups, put in a treble bleed, and redid the wiring/pots/switch. Everything on mine works exactly the way I like now. Super responsive & useful behavior out of the volume & tone knobs, etc..

    Even if it was something like a changed wiring (4/5 way, etc..) still easier for me to just make that mod on mine.

    The thing that would give me GAS would be to suddenly decide I wanted a 2nd Tele that was really different like a dual Humbucker setup or something. The parallel universe guitars are pretty interesting for me.

    They are probably embargoed until they are officially introduced - that's what Fender did with the American Professionals back in November of 2016. They made the dealers take them down from their websites and tried to have the dealers not sell any until they officially introduced them on December 7. Also when the American Elites were replacing the American Deluxes the dealers had the info in December 2015, but Fender made them hold off until the first day of the Winter NAMM show in mid-January 2016.

    The Summer NAMM show is in 2 weeks (starts June 28) so I imagine they are going to do the official introduction when the show opens (probably 10am or 11am Central time in the USA). But being Fender you never know - they could do the official introduction any time between now and then.

    Your link is probably one for dealers that your dealer shared with you, so it's not really open to the public like a dealer website or Fender's own website(s).

    That's the accepted Texan pronunciation...and since Jaguars are native to our state (south of San Antonio and and in Big Bend country), I don't feel guilty saying it that way. :p

    With my accent, pronouncing it jag-u-ar (British style) would sound pretentious.

    Hey brother, where you from in Poland? I was stationed in Warsaw and loved your country! My wife’s family are Polish. Mine come from what used to be Danzig(Gdańsk). So my Prussian roots are really Polish!

    If the store gets it on 6/20 or 6/21 then you might get it then- or Fender might make the store wait to deliver it to you until the series is officially released.

    I saw the Jag and Jazzmaster at Sam Ash yesterday. They might have had the others too, but I didn't look.
