    Default Fender® introduces new models for spring 2013

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (May 2, 2013) — Fender is proud to introduce several new and updated series and models featuring popular designs, and upgraded tops and period-correct finishes on many of its most popular instruments.

    The Cabronita Series added two new instruments to it, including the Cabronita Telecaster® Thinline and Cabronita Precision Bass® guitar. The Cabronita Telecaster Thinline combines Fender’s striking Cabronita styling with traditional lightweight Thinline design. With its semi-hollow ash body with f hole and dual Fideli’Tron™ humbucking pickups, it’s a truly distinctive and powerful take on Fender’s first electric guitar. Other features include a modern “C”-shaped maple neck with urethane finish, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays, three-way toggle pickup switching, single-ply pickguard (black on White Blonde and Two-color Sunburst models; white on Shoreline Gold model), single knurled-chrome master volume control and vintage-style string-through-body Stratocaster hard-tail bridge.

    The Cabronita Precision Bass guitar takes Fender’s revolutionary first bass and decks it out in distinctive and powerful Cabronita style. Features include an alder body with forearm contour, “C”-shaped maple neck with gloss urethane finish, 9.5”-radius maple cap fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays, single Fideli’Tron humbucking bass pickup, single-ply pickguard (black on 2-Color Sunburst model; white on Black and Candy Apple Red models), modern High Mass bridge, knurled chrome control knobs (master volume, master tone) side-mounted output jack and vintage-style reverse tuners.

    The popular Standard Series has added new upgraded Plus Top instruments to the line, which add the elegance of a flame maple top to their alder bodies. These models include the Standard Stratocaster Plus Top, Standard Stratocaster Plus Top Left-Handed, Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top and Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo.

    Finally, the time tested Classic Series instruments now feature period-correct nitrocellulose lacquer finishes on the ‘50s Stratocaster, ‘50s Telecaster, ‘50s Precision Bass, ‘60s Stratocaster and ‘60s Jazz Bass® guitars.

    No thread shall go unanswered, it's great that Fender keep updating their stock, nice to look at
    and drool over, but unfortunately for them and fortunately for me, I got the one that I was looking
    for.

    Actually, I feel compelled to talk about Fenders for fear of being banned.

    For some crazy reason, "Cabronita" reminds me of Sammy Hagar, so that's a good thing.

    Oh, and they look like great guitars too!

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    It's a compelling design. A cross between the Gretsch and Telecaster what could be better? I have lots of Teles and I have a Gretsch Roundup 6121 too. Playing both you can easily see the logic in merging the two styles into one cool guitar. When they first came out they were just Custom Shop things with big price tags. Now it's great to see them show up in less-expensive versions.

    The lack of a tone control makes it less compelling for me.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    I could add a tone control, no problem. Our Doctor Mike built a Tele once with Gretsch pups, I think it was Surf Green. It had me in a most covetous condition, and now I'm starting to revisit that thought process.

    I really want to see the most radical new model, the Cupachabra. We could do it with Filtertrons and a Bigsby to boot!
