Fender has recently introduced the new  Blacktop Series which includes Jazzmaster and Jaguar models.  They are being pushed as guitars that “deliver on modern player demands for a thick and heavy sound” by adding high-gain humbucking pickups.

These guitars are being made in Mexico and come in at an attractive $450 (us dollars).  Now if you don’t want to shell out $800 for a Classic Player model one of  these Blacktop Series guitars may work for you.
