Fender has added a number of new finishes to its already popular American Original Series. The range launched two years ago and so a little extra colour is always welcome.

New splash of colour

Fender has added an Ice Blue Metallic ’60s Jazzmaster; an Inca Silver ’50s Stratocaster; a Daphne Blue ’60s Jaguar; a Burgundy Mist Metallic ’60s Telecaster; an Aztec Gold ’50s Precision Bass and a Vintage White ’70s Jazz Bass.

American Original Series

I think it’s great that Fender is revisiting some classic vintage Fender colours. But I think it’s a shame that they are only being introduced on specific models. However, to get six new colours is still a pretty decent offering and you should be able to pick them up via your authorised Fender dealer soon.

Which one would you buy?

In our recent poll about new US Fender models vs Gibson US models, the Fender ones certainly appeared to be the players favourites. Personally, I’m quite partial to the two offset models, as that pair of blue guitars has really caught me eye. Which one would you buy?

RRP – USD 1949 – USD 2149
