Nice new colors, especially the LPB 60's "Modified" and the Surf Green 50's "Modified".
Mmmm... same spec... now £100 more...
I see what they did there.
Magic paint obviously.
I like that now they offer the '50s Vintera in Sonic Blue but without the S1 switch. Essentially my fave Baja without the fancy electronics (I would have removed the S1 anyway).
Like 'Telecaster' and 'Stratocaster' you mean?
For $200 LESS you can get an amazing late 2000's USED American Standard !
No. Not even close.
I suspect it just sounds spanish to them so it must have been a pun/reference to their being made in mexico
With regard to the Tele, after taking a quick peek at 'em, I gotta say I'm not a fan...
...don't like the colors or the prices!
Most of the replacements of their previous discontinued models have had some types of upgrades that offered values to the consumer.
With this Series, it is like "We are not even going to pretend this offers any value to the customers, just a price increase"
Just another thread where the boring old farts moan about the price, the colours, the specs, and how Fenders were better in 1972 and the summers were warmer too.
Jeez, negativity city
I bought a new Classic Player Jazzmaster from Sweetwater six months ago for $825 and was impressed by the quality of that guitar from Mexico. It was absolutely as high quality as my $1000 American Special Tele.
Few people in this thread have commented that this “Vintage Era” series repackaging of the Classic Player series are all Mexican made guitars. This is a testament to the evolution and progress of the Ensenada factory and the quality guitars they are putting out now. The name “Vintera” definitely has a Mexican flavor to it that makes sense to me in the context of where these guitars are made.
I love my Road Worn 50s Tele - also Mexican made. These are all real Fenders to me.
Very nice - congrats!
Negativity ? uhmmm... maybe it's historical perspective.
Some old farts have been playing and buying guitars in many cases longer than some forum members have been living. They are speaking from a different perspective and viewpoint. Just like the younger players today will speak in 20 or 30 years from now.
Maybe they have seen 10 models which are pretty much the same over the last 2 decades and the only REAL thing that changes was the price ! Quite frankly maybe the old farts who have been playing and buying Fender guitars since way back then are part of the reason Fender is still in business !
MIM's came out as cost effective alternative, not a bad thing when it occurred. Then they became the standard at a higher price point, Now, some models are discontinued then a NEW similar model arrives with a higher price point.
thats not negativity, it's reality. Its what " IS " !
Its not negativity, it's historical . Nobody has to agree or even read the comments !
These new guitars are not a bad thing, they are just another thing ! In 5 years , lets see if they are still available. Its called Marketing
I'm 64. I remember the 'good old days', but I'm not still living in them.
Well, no temptation here. No lefties, thankfully!

best post ever.
'60s custom colors on '50s instruments, a bit anachronistic on some models.
And many models offer only a choice of three custom colors, with no blond or sunburst, it'd be nice to have some standard colors too. It's nice that they'be broken out of the old MIM Classic restriction of blond-burst-black, but they've just replaced that with a restriction of pastel-pastel-pastel.
I absolutely LOVE hte fact that they are offering different neck profiles for different era...better pickups, colors, etc.
I HATE medium C profile with a vengeance. This opens up my options, a bit.
NOT a fan of 1K per piece...but thta's now coming across the board. PRS SE's are now 1000.00 each, as well.
We are seeing USA prices rising, too. I guess that's the new normal...kind of wish the prices were still 500 for MIM guitars....but those days are long gone...
it sounds like a wine, but i don't want to drink it.
that looks great, but at that price point i'm not interested, especially with the stock bridge and with staytrem not shipping to the us anymore.
