I must have missed this. I went looking today to maybe buy a sunburst VM '51 Squier today and I couldn't find any. GC and MFriend have the blonde and the red on back order, SWater has only the blonde in stock. So I called Fender and talked to a guy who told me it the model was discontinued in October. October? I guess retailers have been selling off their stock. I don't know how MF and GC will be getting NOS in unless Fender has some in a warehouse. I liked the guitar. I ordered one a couple of years ago but it came with some structural problems so I sent it back for a full refund.
