[Musikmesse] New Fender Products
Fender’s American Standard series guitars and basses have been upgraded for 2012.
This results in the latest iterations of the company’s four archetypal instruments—the Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass and Jazz Bass guitars. They now feature Fender Custom Shop pickups, as well as other new design touches.
The American Standard Telecaster has been upgraded with a new body contour and classic-sounding Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele (neck) and Broadcaster (bridge) pickups. Left-handed model also available.
The American Standard Stratocaster has been upgraded with aged plastic parts and Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s pickups. The American Standard Stratocaster HSS has also been upgraded with aged plastic parts, with Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s pickups in the neck and middle positions and a Diamondback humbucking bridge pickup. Both instruments are also available in a left-handed model.
The American Standard Precision Bass and five-string American Standard Precision Bass V are now upgraded with a Fender Custom Shop ’60s Precision Bass split single-coil pickup. The four-string version also comes in a new Jade Pearl Metallic finish option, and both basses are available in a left-handed model.
The American Standard Jazz Bass, in right- and left-handed models, is now upgraded with Fender Custom Shop ’60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups and a new Jade Pearl Metallic finish option. The five-string American Standard Jazz Bass V and the American Standard Jazz Bass Fretless now feature the Custom Shop ’60s Jazz Bass single-coil pickups; the fretless model is also available in the new Jade Pearl Metallic finish.
