Whaaaaaaat? :o

I think they actually nailed those... Obviously they don't have the original bridge but not even Fender were making those on the reissues

It also says they have "fender designed wide range humbucking pickups". If it's true then we're lucky.


Damn... Squier Starcasters! It's been a long time coming

Wow. Wasn't expecting that. 3 different models. Ten (!) different colour guitars in total. Only missing the one I would want .. black with WRHB-style. Will probably keep looking for Modern Player.

I wonder if the WRHB covers now say ‘Squier’ as in the other CV models? I actually like the green pearl contemporary...

God damnit I just built a vaguely starcaster-looking thing last year, too.

Fender, if you reissue a model with the black/aluminum knobs, I promise I'll never ask for anything ever again.

I wouldn't be too excited tbh, Fender haven't been making proper Wide Ranges for years so if anything it's just gonna be more of the same.

The links aren't working for me, did anyone happen to get a screenshot of these?

This is crazy. How many models can you get from Squier these days? We even got some left handed offsets last year too. Still waiting on the Tele Deluxe LH... 🤞

Well shit, a CV one is beginning to seem very tempting. I've been looking out for a Modern Player on and off and they basically never show up around me.

I think the most interesting move here is introducing them into the Affinity line. It makes sense, since Epiphone also has a super-barebones Dot Studio 335, and having a semi-acoustic at a level that's accessible to beginners is nice, but I also kind of wouldn't have expected it.

Shit the mocca one is wonderful. Man I'll slap one of those necks on, like, everything!!!

Though I must say, yesterday at MusicStore I tried out a brand new Tele Thinline, it was all top notch BUT the f-hole was outright terrible and nasty workmanship, bad bad bad.

...so I bought a FSR glitter Bullet Tele instead... :ph34r: :fp:

On the PC you can use the zoom. Yes they say Squier. And they're made in Indonesia too.

Looks like I've found my 'finished your PhD' present to myself!

Problem is, I can't decide which!
