Fender Pawn Shop Series press release
The guitars that "never were but should have been" return with new eccentric models. Fender introduces four new, out-of-the-ordinary models to its innovative Pawn Shop series – the Pawn Shop Offset Special, Pawn Shop Jaguarillo, Pawn Shop Fender Mustang Special, and the line's first-ever bass guitar, the Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass. These stylish models offer bold personality, striking looks and daring tones.
The Pawn Shop Jaguarillo guitar hot-rods traditional Jaguar design through the roof with a scorching HSS configuration in which all three pickups –two standard Stratocaster single-coils and an Atomic humbucking bridge pickup – are angled for enhanced bass and treble response.
With a standout design that calls for double-take reactions, the Pawn Shop Reverse Jaguar Bass features a "reverse" body and "reverse" headstocks, new pickguard shape, two Reverse Jaguar humbucking pickups and a streamlined control layout of a single three-way pickup toggle switch and two knobs (volume and tone).
A guitar from the past and the future, the Pawn Shop Offset Special guitar is one of Fender's most offbeat designs ever. Features include a semi-hollow double-cutaway body with an f hole and sleek offset waist, a pair of large JZHB humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching and an Adjusto-Matic bridge with vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece.
The enormously popular Pawn Shop Mustang Special returns with a brand new 3-Color Sunburst finish, expanding colour choices for players of all tastes. Features include a rosewood fretboard with modern 9.5 radius and medium jumbo frets, pickup toggle switch, three-way coil selector slide switch for each humbucking pickup (enabling 15 different tonal options), mint green pickguard, '70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and deluxe gig bag.
