At last fender au have decided to import japanese guitars, starting with a whole lot of Jaguars. Got to play a Surf Green with matching headstock and damn! It's a beauty! Lovely tone and a very good neck. I also got to play a very poorly setup Sunburst at another store which had terrible pickups but I think it was more the amp settings. The Surf Green was going for AU$1165, the cheapest Jag I've seen so far.
Also while I was at it, I got to try out some of the new Squier products now available here such as the 24" Jagmster. I would say this is the best bang for your buck, with great playability and great sound. Only let down would be the cheap tuners and bridge, easily fixed for $100. I could get either a Sunburst for $525 or a all black for $350, but I think the black was an older model (25.5")
Anyway, anyone in Australia please tell about any new products Fender AU is offering. I've notice also an influx of different strats and teles, much nice than the mexs we got before.
