    the new Squier offsets are for sale at many UK, European, and USA retailers....MusiciansFriend has none yet! I asked a customer service rep in chat the other day and they were clueless...

    I hope they get them soon!

    The Squier Bullet Mustang HH, the Affinity Jazzmaster HH, the Deluxe Jazzmaster, etc....

    Maybe they ordered some special colors and are waiting for them to arrive.

    I hope you are right. I'd be in for another one in a different color.

    Not to a damper on the parade, but if only 50% of the scuttlebutt and rumors are true; MF/GC may not have enough cash on hand to buy new merchandise from Fender. They have been liquidating stuff at sale prices for a couple months now. I read where there was a serious issue paying suppliers, and that was at least a year ago. Just a possibility.

    Was at GC today, they had new Fender models. Just not Squier yet. Every year, the 'sky is falling' over at GC and MF. When they hold a huge liquidation sale, let me know. I'll believe it then.

    I think MF will have them myself. They are one of Fenders biggest vendors.

    I've bought three of the new Squier offsets now directly from the Fender website. Shipping has been free and super fast. Great service.

    Well if GC got them, people could go to the actual store and check them out before buying. That's what I'm hoping for, at least. Doesn't mean I won't buy one from someone else after that, though.

    We are getting them. We just received the information to build them into the system, so we should have information on when they are coming in posted within the next few days.

    If you haven't heard anything by Monday of next week, feel free to email us at and we can help out.

    FMIC owns many brands now and I'm sure can only extend only a certain amount of credit. Could easily explain the deals MD has been offering since Christmas. Or it could be a seal they have with MF too move a buttkoad of stuff fast. MF was in hot water several times over the past decade or so.

    What's interesting about this is how often GC (MF) has exclusive Bullet products, now there's an official Bullet product, and they don't have it.

    I would like to point out that the Chicago area GC's didn't have Squier Cabronita's or either of the first two releases of the '51 (first Squier, and Fender Pawn Shop) until almost at the end of their runs, even though they were on the websites for GC/MF.

    I'm guessing the big difference here is Fender finally selling their Squier products online themselves, which probably gives them faster/better feedback of what customers want VS waiting to get the sales numbers back from GC/MF (whose numbers are often driven by advertised sales).

    I just hope to see them in stores soon. I really want to play one before I grab it, and a limited color run would be doubly fun. None of the mom and pop places near me carry squier stuff
