    Don't really like the first two, but the Mustang Special has some possibilities!

    That means ..... after you buy one and find you can't re-sell it . you end up
    taking it to the Pawn Shop to get something for it ! :lol:

    Man , Fender & Gibson seem to think they have to keep offering new weird
    and wonderf... er .... no just weird , creations each year. Guess they have to
    justify their jobs someway.

    Kind of cool.

    Slow down Fender! Bring it down a notch. Get back to the top sellers and make them even better. Too much already. You're going to confuse the customer.

    They look heavily photoshopped. I mean, they look like they've been cut and pasted together.

    They do look a bit photoshopped, but then most of Fender's press images look a bit plastic-y. I spotted them on another forum and, remembering the love that the Squier '51 gets here, thought I'd post them here too. Didn't really look closely until now. Certainly something odd about them.
