    What I like about this new model is that it is thought provoking ! I want a "version" of one. I don't have a offset and I've still had a full life but this one has provoked a project for me :

    My version:
    tele neck
    hard tail string thru bridge
    no PG
    natural finish
    body mounted tele pickups ( GE Smith )
    tele control plate 4 way switch

    the beauty of this project is that I have everything but the body already - it will be my first Offset !

    Too much money for my liking. They have the same in black also.

    I like that shape. A lot.
    I think that a Jazzmaster body from GFS in unpainted poplar for $55 and some time with a belt sander and then some careful hand sanding could produce that shape. Or close enough, anyway.

    Hmmmmmmmmm.... Yet another project to file away in the back of my mind.
    Like I don't have enough in there already...

    Here's my stab at mocking a Burgundy Mist version with a Rosewood/Dots fretboard.

    Reminds me how of some of gibson’s More out-there and short lived models. I’m sure it’ll become an odd collectors piece soon enough.

    So hard for Fender to innovate these days when we all have so much love for the classics. Personally I like it
