Fender is expanding it’s line of American Special guitars (introduced in 2010) with the addition of Mustang and the Jazzmaster models. Both look to be available in black and 3-color sunburst and be offered at the $899.99 price point. (1249.99 msrp)
The jazzmaster comes in fairly typical setup with 2 jazzmaster special humbuckers. The mustang is being offered with a HH setup using dual “atomic” humbuckers and the lower pickup switch. Images and links to the Fender pages follow below.
The Starcaster and Coronado are a couple Fender models that have found a lot of demand over the years. Especially since they haven’t been in production since the early 80s (starcaster) and 70s (coronado). Ebay auctions of good condition originals have brought crazy amounts of money in some cases.
Fender is bringing both of them back. Check out the info below available via Fender for more details.
