Fender Maverick Dorado

The Maverick Dorado commands attention for all of its unusual features. To start, the body sports a neck, headpiece, and body reminiscent of vintage twelve-string models. The Maverick’s alder body comes in a Firemist Gold, Cadillac Green, and Ultraburst color scheme. The maple neck comes with an ebony fretboard, pearl inlays, and a 60’s style C-shape. Additionally, the Tim Shaw Filter’Tron humbuckers accentuate the adjust-o-matic bridge and Bigsby B50. Fender has more recently been using uncharacteristic modifications, such as the Adjust-o-matic seen in this series, or the Tom Morello Special edition with Floyd Rose Tremolo. It comes standard as well with a certificate of authenticity and Surf Green case.

Fender Jazz Strat

Fender’s offset body design from the Jaguar/Jazzmaster appears on the new Jazz Strat model. First, a special solid C-shape rosewood neck with pearl inlay sits on the alder body. Unlike most variations of the offset body style, this version comes with Texas-style electronics. Though it comes with a 5-way pickup selector similar to other special editions. The Seafoam Green figured maple top and American Professional tremolo are enjoyable higher-end additions. The Fender Parallel Universe Jazz Strat Vol II comes with a Surf Green case and certificate of authenticity as well.

Price: $2,299

Fender Spark-O-Matic Jazzmaster

Sporting a minimalist, yet still eye-catching design the Spark-O-Matic is sure to attract attention from fans of the offset body style. A 3-color sunburst shows off the mahogany body with chambered ash wings that is sure to have a unique resonance. The 25.5″ neck comes with a deep C-shape profile as well as a rosewood fretboard. Additionally, Fender had Seymour Duncan install two SM-1N and an SM-3B in the neck position for a truly individual tone. The American Professional bridge and ClassicGear tuners are additional touches that add to the aesthetic.

Price $1,999

Fender Jazz Stratocaster

Although the name may be similar to the Jazz Strat, this model is a completely different experience. Using a Stratocaster style Alder body, and maple C-shape neck with a rosewood fretboard, the color-matched headstock and pearl inlays begin to show the individual style. Using a Jazzmaster pickguard and 65′ special Jazzmaster single-coil pickups, a truly individual look is achieved. As well, the American Professional bridge, ClassicGear tuners, and treble bleed circuits add high end touches to the guitar. The certificate of authenticity and the Surf Green case come enclosed.

Price: $1,999

Fender Telecaster Magico

Master builder Ron Thorn designed this Telecaster to be unlike any other and when looking at it, you can tell he succeeded. This model comes in semi-transparent Surf Green or Daphne blue with a Pearloid Cabronita pickguard. The thinline body is made up of book-matched ash, and finished in a yellowing resistant gloss urethane. A flame maple construction with pearloid accents appears on the soft V to C-shape profile neck. Custom Gold Foil pickups and a “Chopped” bridge are special additions on this model. A certificate of authenticity and Surf Green case are included.

Fender Uptown Strat

This version of the Stratocaster boasts a solid mahogany body to improve resonance, and special mahogany one-piece C profile neck with a maple fretboard. The one of a kind static white color unveils some of the mahogany underneath, and accentuates the Cabronita tortoiseshell pickguard. On top of this, the Double Tap humbuckers are coil-split for various tone options. Finally, ClassicGear tuners, a two-point synchronized tremolo, and a three-position toggle switch finish out the design. The certificate of authenticity and Surf Green case come stock.
