Offset Special, Jaguarillo, Mustang Special, and Reverse Jaguar Bass

Scottsdale, AZ (May 1st, 2012) – Fender is excited to welcome four new, out-of-the-ordinary models to its innovative Pawn Shop series–the Pawn Shop Offset Special, Pawn Shop Jaguarillo, Pawn Shop Fender Mustang Special, and the line’s first ever bass guitar, the Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass. These stylish models offer bold personality, striking looks and daring tones.

The Pawn Shop Jaguarillo guitar hot-rods traditional Jaguar design through the roof with a scorching HSS configuration in which all three pickups –two standard Stratocaster single-coils and an Atomic humbucking bridge pickup – are angled for enhanced bass and treble response.

With a standout design that calls for double-take reactions, the Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass features a “reverse” body and “reverse” headstocks, new pickguard shape, two Reverse Jaguar humbucking pickups and a streamlined control layout of a single three-way pickup toggle switch and two knobs (volume and tone).

A guitar from the past and the future, the Pawn Shop Offset Special guitar is one of Fender’s most offbeat designs ever. Features include a semi-hollow double-cutaway body with an f hole and sleek offset waist, a pair of large JZHB humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching and an Adjusto-Matic bridge with vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece.

The enormously popular Pawn Shop Mustang Special returns with a brand new 3-Color Sunburst finish, expanding color choices for players of all tastes. Features include a rosewood fretboard with modern 9.5 radius and medium jumbo frets, pickup toggle switch, three-way coil selector slide switch for each humbucking pickup (enabling 15 different tonal options), mint green pickguard, ’70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and deluxe gig bag.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
