    American Original and/or Vintera Esquires. Some Vintera colors that aren't pastel.

    Maybe they'll go with robot tuners and on-board electronics?

    I predict they reissue the entire Lead series at some point as well as offer a Jeff Buckley Sig '83 Tele complete with top loader bridge and 12" fretboard radius neck... then a bit later reissue the Tele Plus as well as offer a Jonny Greenwood Signature... re the latter, not doubt they have contacted the RH Camp in the past and were likely ignored or politely told to...

    I don't expect much from Fender that's genuinely affordable anymore. Nothing id want anyway

    I'm soo stocked with these! I hope they come up with something exciting with their ELITE 2020 lineup!

    Probably going back to rosewood, added mid boost control, split coil on humbuckers... NEW VINTAGE COLORS!!
    :)

    The new “Tonemaster Telecasters” !

    Half the weight, twice as much discussion about, derision from older luthiers on the internet. :lol:

    On the reissue end of things, Fender could take one of the rare “C” stamped necks from the 60’s (1 3/4” nut width) and put that out, like they did last year with the 50’s U-shaped necks. Take some market share away from Allparts and Warmoth .

    100% sure of this... Fender is introducing the "Ultra" to replace the "Elite" series!

    What can you tell from the teaser video released today (Friday)? Tuesday is the official release date. I remember 1985 New Coke being introduced this way.
