I have the gut feeling that new colours are about as exciting as it'll get for JM fans, given that the AmPro and Mod Shop JMs just came out, but I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

Would be a great time to update/refresh the colors on the Classic 60s lineup, for sure. Swap out the Surf Green and Fiesta Red for some new 60’s-era options...so many cool ones to choose from. Did they accidentally purchase four million gallons of Surf Green?

Like Apple, when you just let certain models/lines languish, untouched, for years, it sends a weird message to the public. “If they don’t care about the line, why the hell should I?” I realize it’s not a direct 1:1 comparison (guitar colors vs. three-year-old processors/specs), but you get the idea. :)

No Gibson Winter NAMM rumors either...other than they won't be attending...

There is such a lot of old Inventory from 2014 on sitting for both Fender & Gibson (probably others too) that the motivation is to move what's already out there....

If they have to move older inventory, I wouldnt mind a nice rebate to get a model I’d be happy with for a long time.

Remember last Christmas time MF & others had Fender Rebates that showed when you added applicable GEar to the Cart.. Hopefully thaty'll do something like that again.

That said, MF is sending out 17% off Coupons right now....Most others will compete..

They do have rebates. MF.

I’ll wait a bit unless a nice mij/cij appears...

Or use a Fender connection a friend has.

MF has a 15% rebate right now for the '60s Lacquer, but that is it. They seem to be out of stock for quite a few models, and won't restock until after the new year.

Rumour is the Classic '60s models will be getting new finish offerings - Candy Apple Red, Olympic White and Sunburst.

Don't know about Rebates right now at MF but this is the Discount Coupon they sent out. You gotta negotiate though . They always try to tell you they can't do it... If they won't somebody else. At least that's my experience..

The American Vintage line is getting overhauled or replaced. (The tell: they're all on sale or out of stock now.)

I hope Santa brings us an AV66. Just imagine nitro B&B Offsets with matching headstocks :?

Hey man, my '66 is D&B.

Seriously, that would be cool. What I'd like to see is for Fender to just start building them all as Thin Skins.

A LPB or Dakota Red AV66 finished in nitro with B&B neck w/matching headstock would give me nearly terminal GAS. I'm already toying with commissioning an MJT to those specs.
