    I agree. I’d like one in fiesta red. But my big guitar purchase this year is 99.9% likely to be a Chrissie Hynde model. Maybe next year for the Noventa.

    I missed the red one. I’d take the red too.

    I am a fan of the blonde and burst finishes myself. I'd love to see a parchment guard for the fiesta red.

    I think all those Noventa models are going to be really popular. Well done Fender for doing something different for a change.

    To be fair, the parallel universes are cool, too.

    I can't get past that big blob of "wear" on the PG. It just looks like Chrissie spilled soup on it.

    Yum!!
    I must say, I am not typically a fan, but fiesta red suits it particularly well.

    I've been seeing some chatter about the new lineup. I honestly did not know what Noventa is as I had never heard the term before.

    Not only is it a product brand that is applied to the new lineup of Fender guitars, but it appears that Fender is using the Noventa label to product brand their proprietary version of their P-90 (which Fender names MP-90). I emphasize appears as I am surmising this by reading the description of the new Noventa Tele.

    According to the article at the bottom of this post, the guitars won't be available until May 2021.

    I'm a sucker for playing in the neck position so I wish the Tele had the option or version of the P-90 in the neck. Wow, I literally would be putting an order out today. [The Noventa Strat offers P-90 in neck and bridge, may consider that as well!]

    The sunburst model has a real Leslie West/Les Paul Jr. thing going on. I like the red also.

    I am generally not a fan of some of the Fender Parallel Universe/Mashup guitars, but a Tele with a single bridge P90 speaks to me.

    This ' Tele meets LP Jr.' vibe looks very cool in the sunburst.

    I'll take this one, with the new VibroChamp Reverb

    The Noventa JM now has 3 P90s, so they must have been watching your build.

    The Noventa tele looks cool but I would be more tempted by the strat, because apart from the body shape it's not a strat.

    It's a hardtail 2xP90 guitar with a comfy strat body. Now, if I hadn't just put some P90s into another guitar I'd be tempted. Oh well.

    eh, the tele i'm not sure why a novelty that takes less labor and parts costs so much more than a player.

    the JM is fine, i'm not really down with the maple board or the TOM, but a lot of options there with the routes. would be really cool to put two firebird pups in there, and i'm a fan of walnut personally (which luckily has the pau ferro). i'm not sure it's worth the same as a vintera to me, but it's a lot better than that player JM nonsense they crapped out.

    I guess if you really want a Les Paul Jr but dont want it to be a Les Paul Jr.

    If you like a P90 type in the neck, here's something close at less than half the price:D 20210109_120741~2.jpg

    OP here,

    kinda confused on the pricing though. MSRP at 1899???

    Am i jumping into conclusion that these are MIM’s given the Pau Ferro fretboard (not that I care)? Ive noticed that only US models get rosewood fretboard, even the lowest American Performer models are rosewood. (Again, not that I care)

    but the price is a bit expensive? But oh well. Its one step closer to what I actually wanted. One P90’s on bridge ala Esquire. BUT what I had in mind was a thinline semi hollow. Lol. It wouldve been perfect for me if they made a thinline and I wouldve broken the piggy bank now for one. Lolol.

    the strat with p90’s are intriguing too!!

    It looks pretty much like hers. Also, it’s the pickguard. Pretty easily remedied if it looks horrible in person.
