    I'm already trying to figure out how I can afford one of those

    Probably September and the street price is probably going to be $500

    I paid $500 For my MIM Jaguar. I feel like that may be a bit too much...

    I totally agree about the jazzmaster, specially since the one with block inlays doesn't have a bound neck, but that Mustang is gonna be mine.

    Yea, and I'm not even really liking the black Jazzmaster. The mustangs are definitely The coolest. I guess that's the only REAL FENDER MUSTANG in that range though.

    I agree about the jazzmaster. I was excited about the neck, but underwhelmed by the only color choice. I'll just wait til I can find the neck from one on eBay for a good price.

    I've seen people on other forums complaining about the pickups in the Mustang, but it's not a difficult fix to put different pickups in it. It would be nice if they had more color choices across the modern player line.

    I wish there were other colored marauders. I love mine.

    It looks even better on that video and it sounds pretty good too, although I would have to change the pickups because I don't like the aesthetics of the p90s.

    On/off/reverse phase. Basically, you can have the pickups together, in parallel, in phase, like normal, it out of phase, which I know you got a taste of not too long ago. I played around with the stock pickups out of phase in my Mustang before I replaced them and it wasn't a tone that I found useful and I think the sound of the MP Mustang will be similar since the vm mustangs pickups are wound so hot, but I did find that a neck and bridge jb Jr out of phase make a nice, single coil-like tone.

    It's not meant to, OOP sound will sound thin and harsh, no way it will sound like a single coil (even the crappiest single coils).
