Could this have been intended for the summer show? When Guitar Center originally published the Paranormal info the guitars all had June release dates. Maybe we'll see more in a few months.
For comparison, the Offset Series was originally announced at a Summer NAMM and they shipped in October. Fender does that once in a while. Since Squier has had issues even getting the CV Mustang Bass out their door (orig. Sept, now March) June sounds doable if announced 1st Qtr. Also lets them rack up pre-sales and dealer orders so they're not unnecessarily short on popular models. All conjecture, of course.
I'm sure some Fender dealer in '64 looked at the new Duo-Sonic II and thought, "That's not a Duo-Sonic. That's a Mustang".

Anyone seen anything else about the Paranormal line? I’ve not seen any other retailer information for anything from NAMM
Paranormal line? Is this different from the Parallel line?
This Gearnews story is all about it. The article references......the thread you're in. About 4 pages ago. :)

Ah. Saw the guitars but missed them being referred to as the Paranormal Line.

That's true, but still no official announcement and NAMM is over.

The big tip off on them not being announced at NAMM is they weren't displayed at NAMM. They weren't in the Fender booth, which means they have something else up their sleeve. And Guitar Center already had the pix and specs loaded and ready to go. I bet all the big online dealers are ready to go. Since the cat's out of the bag maybe someone could just call Fender and ask? 1 (800) 856-9801

The expected ship date is in June. If I'm remembering correctly, June 20th. The only somewhat "detailed" info I was able to get was on the supersonic (apparently none of the other models have product information uploaded beyond price and picture etc):

neck shape: soft D
scale length: 24"
neck finish: gloss
number of frets: 22
inlays: abalone dot
nut width: 1.5in (38.1mm) ---this makes no sense to me
pickups: "proprietary open coil humbucker"

The last Google cache version of the pulled GC pages is for the Thinline Cabronita. Its giving a September date. Doesn't mean the models won't be spread out over a few months. Also, the CV Mustang Bass announced in July was saying March '20 and they're now in shops. Things change.

The Fiesta Red Tele with JM pickups is everything I ever wanted in a guitar. Are these even real? I recall a similar leak last year with the shell pink Classic Vibe Jaguars, but all this time later I don't think these guitars exist.

This is one of the Squier Paranormal Series that was posted on GC's site and then pulled because they weren't announcing them until after NAMM.....sometime. Head back to page 4 of this thread for the pictures. They're totally real.

As for the Shell Pink CV 70s Jaguar it was announced in Sept and then postponed until early this year sometime. In the meantime you can click this link and stare at a large image of it on Fender's site:

Oh this is awesome - thank you. I've been trying to find the page for this specific model. Tried wayback machine but alas I'm not the most tech savvy dude.
Totally- I could be just misremembering, too. Will try to get more info and report back if I do

Speaking of which, am I the only one feeling extremely disappointed that there is no flake finish option for the Super-Sonic?
I've kind of made it a rule in my internet life that I'm just not going to listen to anyone who rants about mystical shit like PIO caps in guitars & all the rest of that junk that's objectively busted or so slight as to be irrelevant. - mackerelmint

GC put them up the Thursday before NAMM which was about 1-6 months earlier than they should have. Oops! All those GC pages are gone now. This Gearnews article has pictures and some info (& a link to this thread): https://www.gearnews.com/namm-2020-leak ... al-series/

Most were $399 but a few like the Super Sonic were $350. I think the Toronado was, too.
