Fewer AVRI colours

Post by Naturality » Sun Feb 11, 2007 3:04 pm

Fender's website now shows less colours for JMs, there used to be 6 now there's only 4 :o

But they've kept Jaguars the same :o

Looks like 5 to me.

I noted the disappearance of IBM in another thread but I don't remember which one. I'm glad I got mine when I did.

I've got this figured out.

Later, that same evening at Fender HQ ...

If anything, they need to add more variety with the models. It would be great, as part of a discussion from another thread, to have tort guards and other options for us. I mean, if there is only 5 colors to choose from, at least give some changes. I know this is redundant--just wishful thinking is all.  :-[

There are even fewer options for the '62 Tele.

That is true. But wasn't there a limited color selection for the original '62? I could be wrong on that one.

As for the JM and Jag, Fender could easily introduce Fiesta Red, Sherwood Green, and even add something like tort/mint/white pickguard options to the following guitars. I don't think it would be difficult to offer both for sale. Just order your guitar through your local shop as usual. It would be so nice to get a Sherwood Green with red tort guard, matching headstock and...  :?  ooh, i'm drooling again.

Honestly, I'm quite surprised that they've been going with so many colors for this long.

I'm pretty sure that the Jazzmaster is far from being Fender's top-selling guitar.  It makes sense for them to cut back on finish options from a financial standpoint.

It seems to me like most folks on here would rather build a "Parts-master" than buy an all new AVRI Jazzmaster, anyway.

Damn.  The THREE colors I've wanted in an AVRI JM were - Fiesta Red (disc.), Sherwood Green (also disc.) and Ice Blue Metallic (NOW disc.)!! 

Crap. :'(
