How about this version?
Whoa. That Jazz Tele will be mine.
I want a guitar with a trim-OH-low. Speech impediment, stroke, lousy English teacher?
What the heck?!
It's so ugly that that big Strat headstock looks almost attractive.
Trouble is, once Leo came up with the Telecaster, Stratocaster and Jaguar/Jazzmasters he'd covered all the bases and it's virtually impossible to get any better. This offering is just, well, totally unnecessary.
I'd even rather buy a Reverend than this....nothing wrong with Reverend guitars I'm told but they all look ugly to me.....but I'm thinking any Reverend's better looking than this, probably plays and sounds better too!
I honestly think I have come up with the ultimate Fender, and no, I'm not kidding around. I played one of those Jazzcasters and really liked it. It's the first solid-body which has caught my eye in quite a while. So . . . what if . . . you used a Jazzmaster body, Tele neck with maple fingerboard, Strat Trim-OH-Low, Tele bridge pickup and either a humbucker or hot Tele neck pickup? I'm not kidding, man.
That would be one HOT Fender. Nothing sounds like a Tele bridge pickup and I love a Strat trem'. The JM body can be very comfortable to play, and the Tele control set is hard to improve upon.
Well I'll be there all 4 days and this year my band isn't playing at the Show so I'll have a little more time to wander around (though we are playing across the street at Downtown Disney on Sunday evening, after the Show closes). The tempting tidbits Reverend has been throwing out are intriguing, and just hanging around the booth makes for great guitarist-gawking, as all manner of players stop by and schmooze. Quilter is hinting at some new stuff they'll be introducing, and Gretsch always has something up its sleeve. The Convention Center has never needed an "anchor," lately Gibson, Fender/Gretsch/Jackson/etc., Taylor, et al ensconce themselves in upstairs (enormous) suites so the main floors can remain the mind-numbing din they are so deservedly reputed to be. This isn't the first time Gibson bailed on a NAMM Show, so I don't think their absence be that big a deal.
What I look forward to most are the new, goofy, probably-their-only-time-at-NAMM vendors and the products they (attempt to) bring to market. And if it's goofy, quirky, or just plain silly, you can bet I'll be there to make fun of it.
And the post-Show live entertainment in the surrounding are is astounding at night. It often starts a week beforehand when people coming for NAMM book other gigs so they can make a little more during their trip to the Show. Gretsch will have to really have something spectacular if they intend to outdo last year's Darrel Higham/Jeff Beck/Duane Eddy show, though.
OMG, I would have loved to see that.
Actually the MODERNE looked a lot like that
The only problem with this is I really don’t like the Jazzmaster body(just kinda big...awkward...)and a Strat NECK pickup tone is one of the best things Fender offers!
Fender preps new Parallel Universe Series for NAMM 2018 launch
The Strato-Tele is sorta cool. I can dig some of the Teles, but that Jag-Strat just doesn't look right to me.
I never think that I look as if I'm wearing a white dress when I play a Strat. A kilt, maybe.
Omg........it’s like ya bred a dog with cat....what the heck is it. I must be losing it for I’m kinda attracted to this Fender partscaster Tele strat thing.
I'll covet the Jag-Strat
You should be coming to Las Vegas to see the Stray Cats show. If I can make it, you can make it.
I like it too. Replace the Tele neck pickup with a P90 or a TVJ Filter'tron and you have a guitar that would be hard to beat
