    That's an awful lot of money for an MIM Fender.

    And the fact that some of them are nothing more than Squier re-brands is offensive. I'm another guy who bought his '51 for $99 bucks. The fact that they think if they put a Fender decal on it it gives them license to charge 10x what I paid for a perfectly good guitar is amazing. And not in a good way.

    So then .. an American Std Tele is 'the same' as a Squier Standard Tele - because it is the same shape? But much dearer, and so Fender has a cheek?

    Now I know you don't believe that!

    Price and country of manufacture aside, Some folks in this thread seem very conservative regards Fender products.

    The whole serues looks like good , fun guitars to me.
    Well .. mostly... :rolleyes:

    That Jaguarillo would be mine in a shot if it plays as good as it looks and if I was on the prowl for something new. And different :cool:

    I've owned two Pawn Shop series ...

    ... the MIJ '71 in green and now a MIM Jaguarillo in blue.

    Both have been phenomenal players; fit & finish are excellent, and both sound fantastic.

    I sold the '71, because the humbuckers were a little too crunchy for what I was doing at the time. The Jaguarillo, however, is spanky, twangy and crunchy, whatever you might need.

    Copped 'em both on sale for around 1/2 price (one used, one blem). I HIGHLY recommend any from this series if you like to step outside what everyone else plays every now and then ...

    Peace.

    The 2013 70's Strat Deluxe is a near copy of the Fender Japan ST75 thats been around a while but out of production now .The Japanese original has a trem bridge and a contoured heel which the Mexican copy lacks ,It also came with a Fender Dragster humbucker and a Texas Special Telecaster neck pickup ,while the MIM version has an atomic humbucker bridge and a standard Tele neck pickup.
    I have always fancied one of these but didnt like the neck radius of 7.5 so I bought a loaded body with a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge .Absoluely love it I am big fan of Japanese Fenders anyway .Oddly I getting fonder of mother of toilet seat ,a worrying sign of aging and poor taste .

    No, I wouldn't say that.

    But a MIM Tele costs considerably less than an American Standard. That Fender '51 is priced way higher than other MIM Fenders.

    I could see listing it for $500 - $600, but over a grand? Asking too much, IMO.
