I know the guy who made that Jag/Jazz, pretty sure I asked him about it and he said it was shit.

They do that "tidepool" blue. If you didn't notice, there are two dots under the four offsets, click the black one and it shows you the other four.
[Thinks: isn't that the same blue as the MP Marauder?]


Nasty blue tho 😒

Teh Kurdtz range.

Lefty offsets always look weird to me, especially upright.

Yeah, look weird to me too. The offset waist seems so much more pronounced to me when they're left handed.

Aside from looking sinister, those colours are fuckin’ brilliant.

The CAR Jag is hawt as all fook. Nice to see Fender Japan stuff available again without having to use forwarding companies for the importing and Google Translate for the moon runes.

My LPB mustang is metallic. I think that’s what LPB is supposed to be.

I've noticed nobody's mentioned the Squier Contemporary Jazz Basses they announced as well, fuckin matching headstocks. im really digging the blue one here.



they've also got some active basses, and a five string active in black




$350 for the non-active basses, $400 for the active basses, $430 for the five string active bass

I can't find any confirmation but they looked a darker blue than LPB to me.

Yeah, it’s the blue equivalent of CAR; sparkles like a lake...

Hitting google, the old listings I found list it as LPB...
https://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender/Modern-Player-Marauder-Electric-Guitar-Lake-Placid-Blue-Rosewood-Fretboard-1309565842060.gc

... but the official specs don’t seem to be anywhere. It may be a darker blue, even, based on modern mixes, but given the same name.

Good to know. It would be interesting to see it and this new colour side by side. I guess I could take my Marauder down to Andertons....
