NAMM: Vintage Yet Modern Guitars


Squier has expanded its Vintage Modified Series of guitars with the introduction of the new Jagmaster II and Squier '51 guitars. The Vintage Modified Series is comprised of guitars that feature modern twists on older designs, built with popular modifications right from the start - a fun spin on historical guitars. The Squier Jagmaster II is newly redesigned and upgraded. The scale length on the tinted maple neck with rosewood fingerboard has been shortened from 25.5" to 24", which is reminiscent of the Fender Jaguar guitar and helps to balance out the larger body shape. This guitar features a new 6-screw bridge which replaces the previous 2 point fulcrum, and the pickups have been upgraded to Duncan Designed humbucking pickups. US MSRP is $415.99. The all new Squier '51 is a value priced screamer offering unique looks and functionality. The guitar is a melting pot of vintage and modern, combining '51 P Bass cosmetics, a Stratocaster guitar body shape, and a tinted Telecaster guitar neck. A rotary selector and push-pull coil tap provides a whole range of tonal options. US MSRP is $248.99. More info:
