I went to the local Fender dealer today, and the Fender rep was there with samples of the new MX versions of these offsets. Price point around $700 - $750.

The Jag was in a very nice blue. I don’t remember what he called it, but it looked like a slightly darker version of Lake Placid blue, to my eyes. Humbucker in the bridge, with a coil split switch in the upper bout. Single coil in the neck position.

Different kind of bridge than I’ve seen on Jags, with a tremolo, unlike some of the “special” Jags they’ve been making. The look of the controls (though not necessarily the function) is similar to the American Pro series. The upper bout doesn’t have a chrome piece, but is covered by the plastic pickguard instead. This looks better to me than the solitary switch in the middle of the chrome piece, as on the American Pro. There is a lower chrome piece, as on a classic Jag.

The Jazzmaster was in a faded white, yellowish. Looked nice.

The rep said they would be released in mid-June. I don’t know what they’re calling this series.

Evidently they’re going to be part of the soon-to-be released “”Player” series, which will include all of the usual suspects.

I tried to upload a photo of them, but I guess there’s a size issue, which I have failed to resolve.

They finally were announced yesterday.

Replaces the existing MIM Standards, with a price hump to match (not just Jaguars and Jazzmasters).

They also have Fender's new insanity of the upcharge for pau ferro (since rosewood is too hard for them to deal with, unlike other manufacturers) and change the features of both the Jaguar and Jazzmaster.

Big no from me.

Suppose the Squier Jags and JMs cover the low end of the market.

Do they still have the roadworn or the Lacquer versions ?

Yea, those are still around last I checked (the lacquer any way, I don't pay attention to relic stuff).

The problem is their "high end" of the market is equally insane - the pricing on a proper spec MIA Jaguar...is mid-range Gibson!

I find the Jag an interesting offering. The way the specs and features are, it barely qualifies as a Jaguar, but I see it as an interesting take on the 24” scale guitar.

I suppose Fender would have been justified in calling this a new model name, maybe with a different-shaped body and maybe headstock. But then probably no one would give it a second look - har!
