No.


YES!


It's amazing what passes for guitar design in 2016: Poorly recycling Fender's ideas from 50 years ago.

Well it could have been another sunburst/red/white Strat. At least it looks ten times better than the god awful Jagstang. Had the guitar been a little bit more squinty at the butt it would have been pretty much spot on.

With designs like this you really have to try them to get a proper idea. It may well be super comfy. Or it could be like the Cyclone where they took a great small body design, made it thicker and squared off the edges and made one of the worst guitars in Fender/Squire history.

The bass is dank, but that guitar looks wack.

fender used to be better at combining different aspects from varying instruments to make something new. i think it was also because they weren't afraid to bridge the inevitable gaps with a little innovation (bronco bridge for example). now it's like they have this fixed palette for building instruments and never stray from it. totally different from their roots.

I think it's cool that an actual player/artist can design a new guitar. Of course it has the inevitable, obvious influences... But kudos to Squier for this. And the Vista Series. Some love, some hate. But well done.

Yeah that's the only neat aspect. If it's something that has a following and they're doing it for the kids, then whatever. I don't really care, I just think it's fugz.

In comparison to the JagStang, SuperSonic and Sergio signature this guitar is not ugly at all. There are plenty of Fenders that were way uglier. The performer still has a cult following!

I don't think it's ugly, it's just meh to me. I think the Jaguar, mustang, and Jag-Stang are more aesthetically pleasing, imperfections included.

I fell for the Jag-Stang off pure comfort alone, it's one of those cases where I kinda-sorta liked the shape on sight, but then found it comfortable and it quickly grew on me.

If you read that offset thread, Jarman replies at length about how they got involved in designing those guitars for Fender and the sort of thing they were aiming for.
