Scottsdale, AZ (May 2, 2013) -- The Fender Custom Shop’s new spring instrument selection presents some of its most sophisticated and meticulously crafted product offerings to date, including four guitars and one bass.

The new Limited Jazzmaster Pro guitar is the Fender Custom Shop’s latest addition to its Pro Collection. Designed for players attracted to the classic Jazzmaster body style who seek more modern features, it has a lightweight ash body, single custom-voiced humbucking bridge pickup and two-point synchronized tremolo bridge machined from 1018 cold-rolled steel. Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck, 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 6105 frets, gold anodized aluminum pickguard, Greasebucket tone control circuit (rolls off high end without adding bass) and locking tuners.

The Limited Custom Deluxe Jazzmaster guitar recasts the classic Fender model in a beautiful select okoume body with a flame maple top and Honey Blonde finish, accentuated by a gold anodized aluminum pickguard and gold hardware. It also features an AAA flame maple neck, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 6105 frets and mother-of-pearl dot inlays, Adjusto-Matic bridge with vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece, and gold locking tuners.

The Limited La Cabronita “Luchador” Stratocaster guitar presents one of the most distinctive takes ever on the traditional Fender model. Simple and powerful, it speaks with a lean, mean voice from its single TV Jones Power’Tron pickup. Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck with Telecaster headstock shape, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets, single-ply parchment pickguard, Greasebucket tone control circuit (rolls off high end without adding bass), hard-tail bridge with six stainless steel saddles, and chrome tuners with pearl buttons.

Sleek and powerful, the Limited La Cabronita “Gato Gordo” Jaguar guitar takes Fender’s classic cat and revamps it for the modern pro player with a forceful TV Jones Power’Tron pickup and standard Fender 25.5” scale length (versus the traditional 24” Jaguar scale length). It also features a quartersawn maple neck, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets, single-ply parchment pickguard, Greasebucket tone control circuit (rolls off high end without adding bass), hard-tail bridge with six stainless steel saddles, and chrome tuners with pearl buttons.

The Limited Relic 1955 Precision Bass guitar is a rare and distinctive Custom Shop instrument in that for the very first time, it comes in a special Black over Three-color Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Other premium features include a lightweight ash body, quartersawn maple neck, 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with vintage-style frets, custom-wound “stacked” ’51 Precision Bass pickup with chrome cover, single-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style bridge with two “barrel” steel saddles and chrome cover, and flat-wound strings.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
