I actually like most of them, but not for the prices they're asking. I feel like the Meteora will be a pretty decent hit just because its different, I even considered buying one because I'm in the market for a new guitar, but I don't want to gamble on $2000. I also like the idea of the jazz tele but the colors and the damn pickguard shape really turn me off (on top of the price). I'll just make my own for half the cost.

I like Fender mashups but none of these look very good tbh, theres no flow, its like they just took random bits of hardware from across models and slapped them together.

i was starting to like the Jazz Tele, but then i saw that they want $1800. fuck that. i could get Warmoth or somebody to do the body and get it done for half that.

A $400 Squier version of the Jazz Tele with upgrade potential would have been awesome.

Any of these at a reasonable Squire price would have been pretty awesome.

Definitely like that! The P bass isn't too shabby either. :excellent:

Although seeing the jaguar is 34" scale length I don't know why they can't just make a P/J in a Jazz or P body. Not that the jaguar doesn't look great.
Good deals with: AngryGoldfish, Officer Bukowski, casterbro, amnesiac305, Achtane, Snufkino, Tom Dalton, DarkAxel, JamesSGBrown, casperh7, Tristan, intothegroove, Gigahearts_FX, alalalkasar, nightterrors, Schlatte, Dandolin, jskadiang, laekna, biftaclyro, maortojn, oscillateur

I think this the major problem with these models as proper Fenders -- just way too expensive. A little bit of legwork (which to save $1000? yes I will do that thank you) and you get same-or-better quality. If these were Squiers, though, they'd be a knock outta the park at that price point.
