These prices are crazy though, nearly $1200 bucks for a Made in Mexico modified Jaguar.

Pretty normal for the UK, we've been getting fucked on guitar prices compared to the US for decades.

^ That.

But price aside, I can't understand why Fender think it's acceptable to offer any model in only two colors. TWO. It's sort of infuriating that you can get the vintage spec JM in ice blu ...

Do want the green one, though I'd also want a neck pickup. Seems you can't get them Stateside anyway.

What's with the bridge / bridge pickup placement and shorter overall length on the single coil model? Is it an short scale?

One of the few strats with decent switching options.

The tailpiece is pretty cool too,the strings don't go through the body.

I've had a guitar with on/off push buttons like that and found it mor ...

I kinda wanted one, but shipping to the US is $36.85 Laughing But it turns out they're common on eBay.

I don't think they ever did stop. They're just not exporting them (or any other MIJ models).

I want to like that, but as previously mentioned by others, to me it doesn't look any better than something like this. In fact I like this better.

You can get them brand new from a lot of different places. I'm unsure whether the saddle spacing would be correct for one of these, but they look the part.

I actually kinda love it just like it is...beat up grunge-y Univox vibe.

If you've gotta change bridge to make it functional though I'd go with a Toronado bridge. About as close to a Duo-Sonic b ...

I'm going to guess that "red burst" is a poor way to describe what I would assume is a Joe Pass Emperor-II. They're lovely players, and I'd certainly take one in trade if I wanted a hollowb ...

Looks like it's just 3 guitars a month. IMO, at 699 USD, these already are overpriced...they probably make a sizable profit when one sells. So I'm sure it's not that much of a hit in the grand schem ...
