[NAMM] New Squier Artist Series Models
Squier introduces the Avril Lavigne Telecaster, the Jim Root Telecaster, and the Mikey Way Mustang Bass.
The new black-on-black Avril Lavigne Telecaster joins Lavigne's signature Tele, and features several touches, including a three-ply pickguard, knurled black flat-top volume control knob, a black headstock with die-cast turners, and a 12th-fret skull and crossbones logo.
Designed in cooperation with Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist Jim Root, the Jim Root Telecaster features an elegant satin-matte finish in black or white, simple single-knob/single switch control layout, black die-cast tuners and other black hardware, and two passive humbucking pickups with black covers.
The Mikey Way Mustang Bass, designed with the input of My Chemical Romance bassist Mikey Way, takes the classic Mustang Bass and amps it with a large-flake Silver Sparkle finish with black racing stripes, a single humbucking pickup with a black cover, and a black headstock with Way's signature on the back.
Also in the signature series are the Simon Neil Signature Stratocaster and the James Johnston Jazz Bass guitars. Released in Europe in 2009, these signature models designed in collaboration with the Scottish rockers are now made available worldwide.
