Limited run of 500 makes me think they will be expensive. But I am digging them.

These first appeared around last year's NAMM but then it all went quiet: http://www.shortscale.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=59690&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=60

Never really liked the aesthetic of Telemasters tbh but seems like lots of people dig them.

these have been around for donkeys in various guises, and I'm pretty sure fender have done them as well a few times at custom shop levels

seems a bit hilarious to bring out a tiny expensive batch of 500 like its some crazy one-off idea especially with that anaemic maple going on. at this point they're long due a mexican or japanese model (or squier even). it'd definitely sell.

Squier should've had these when it would've cost Fender like five bucks, 'cause now they're buying up/manufacturing shit to make full-on vintage style offsets and nobody's gonna want the "almost a Jag but way cheaper to build" version with Affinity Tele bits that's been around for aforementioned donkeys.

It looks Squiery.

It's a weird sort of reverse snobbery: I don't like this and wouldn't buy one, and probably wouldn't bother playing one. But if it said Squier on the headstock and cost 300, I'd probably think it was great.

Probably the worst aspect of them is that THEY ARE TELECASTERS. Literally no Jag / JM features except for the outline. So it's a Telecaster with some extra wood hanging on the back end. What's the point?

Why are you so quick to judge/insult what you don't like? It is ok if you don't share the same opinion as others, but when you start making fun of them for it, it comes off as petty and childish. You seem to do this often.

As for it being not that much different than a telecaster, that is true. But aesthetically, I prefer this look. They should make jazz master/firebird vii hybrid next.

im not sure who these dudes are ?

don't most bands look like regular kids wearing jeans and shirts now days ? its kind of like the opposite of poser.

to be a true poser you have to at least wear shit that you have no business wearing. thats like the most basic rule of poserness.

example A)

air jordan's with your skateboard.




and before one of you old fucking crusty dudes tells me that Tommy Guerrero wore Jordans in the Search for animal Chin, it was like 1986, there wasn't 100 different options to pick from.

lol. i was refering to the thing where they have teles with stacked pickups and telemasters just for the looks, where basically any other guitar would do the job better. I actually like the music, unless they act super cheesy on stage.

In my opinion/personal experience Teles are better sounding rock guitars at the end of the day than any other classic single coil Fender, ever. Very few of them are country guitars anymore spec-wise anyway... the sound of Teles has changed and the sound of country has changed, both to the same degree of tamed blandness. So non-specialist Teles rarely provide the amount of trebley spank that country music incidentally no longer requires by and large (notable exceptions be damned, such as Brad Paisley who's even NAMED after a Telecaster) and through a dirty Britishy valve amp can be a hell of a lot like using a Les Paul anyway... let the labels goooo.

Needs a JM trem and/or JM neck pickup.

but all of us complain about "modern country" or "radio country"

all i can handle any more is Shooter Jennings and Casey James Prestwood. they are much more "roots" then "radio"
