Squier expands its Vintage Modified Series of guitars with the introduction of the new Jagmaster II and Squier '51 guitars at this summer's NAMM show. The Vintage Modified Series is comprised of guitars that feature modern twists on classic designs, built with popular modifications from the get-go.
The Squier Jagmaster II is newly redesigned and upgraded. The scale length on the tinted maple neck with rosewood fingerboard has been shortened from 25.5" to 24", which is reminiscent of the Fender Jaguar guitar, and which helps to balance out the larger body shape. This guitar features a new 6-screw bridge which replaces the previous 2 point fulcrum, and the pickups have been upgraded to Duncan Designed humbucking pickups. US MSRP is $415.99.
The all new Squier '51 is a value priced instrument offering unique looks and functionality. This guitar is a melting pot of vintage and modern, combining '51 P Bass cosmetics, a Stratocaster guitar body shape, and a tinted Telecaster guitar neck. Its clean appearance belies its true nature, with tonal possibilities galore via the instrument's rotary selector and push-pull coil tap. US MSRP is $248.99.
