Anyone looked at these yet? Went to MF to see the Stupid Deal and these were on the front page this morning. Kind of interesting to see a Marauder in production (with a triple-coil pickup, no less).

Some interesting features on some of these, I like the Tele thinline with P90s but at these prices, are they MIC? If so, does that make them the first MIC Fender branded instruments?

Does anyone know where these are made? I couldn't find any reference on Fender.com and various retailers.

I haven't been able to find anything specific yet, either, but I too am curious to know where they're made. I'm guessing China at that price point, but if they can equal the CVs in quality, that might not be the end of the world.

Made in China according to Anderton's, the UK store.

I guess this marks the first occasion of MIC guitars bearing the Fender, as opposed to Squier, badge.

As KC notes, if these measure up to the CVs than it might not be much of a compromise, if any at all.

The Teles are quite intriguing.

I love the Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe with the P-90s, but I dunno about China!
