I saw this on Gear news and found it interesting.

Fender has new Line coming for 2018

I love the Gretch Tele! I plan on getting one once they come out

What do you Think?

Oh, brother.

Fender seems to have adopted the "If you throw enough $%#@ at a wall, some of it is bound to stick" approach to product design.

Did Henry J move from Gibson to Fender and bring his goofy ideas ?

"Limited Edition Meteora" - Ok, who's doing the brown acid ??

I say that because I have seriously been considering a Musiclander body for my next project.

But no that particular pickup config.

Can't help but think that they should have just looked at Warmoth's customer builds pages to see what people actually like.

The thinline tele with a couple of TV Jones Classics could be a fairly popular option though. At least in my rockabilly fantasy mind.

Peegoo - I already have a Sunburst MIA Carbronita Tele

I still want the Gretch Thinline Tele, I will add a Bigsby to complete the effect

I just did my own Strato Tele (Hybrid) just 2 weeks ago. That'll do me.

Actually there's not much there that hasn't been done by creative BIY'ers.

And that Meteora is a real dog's breakfast...

and fugly.

Mick, you went beyond parallel universe guitars with that Epi project. You downright crossed the streams.

Well, I like the Jazz Tele. This is sort of the same thing as the Pawn Shop series was a few years ago. I did buy and still own a Pawn Shop Offset Special. I'll be gigging with it tonight.

These look great ! All are very cool, so it would be tough picking just one.

It's interesting to read the comments both here and below that article ... lots of noise that don't amount to nothin'!

"It don't matter what you say;
only matters if you pay and play!"

The only one that's a stretch to me is the Meteora, which was already officially announced. Not sure why that ugly body shape with the *exact* Tele pup configuration will be a hit? (Now I'm doing the same thing...)

Like several peeps mentioned under the article; NONE of these will be made for lefties (thanks a lot, Fender!), so I won't ever have to have GAS for them.

Where Fender's lost me isn't just design, it's vision.

I can get a mid-priced Gibson new for the price of a MIA Jaguar with proper, traditional circuitry.

There's something profoundly off with that.
