No nitro on the Vineteras. Pau Ferro fingerboard if that matters to you. There's a Vintera II line now, so Fender were discounting the first iteration – think they're all sold out now – but $700US with a hard case doesn't seem too bad.

They were super expensive here. Guitar Gallery wants nearly $3k new for the equivalent Jazzmaster:

And nearly $4k for the new Vintera II Jaguar:

And I want a toilet seat made out of solid gold, but it's just not on the cards, is it?

That vintage headstock is pretty nice, usually most attempts at a fender like thing suck!

Fuck I hate video content that could have been 2 short paragraphs with some photos.

FYI, the vibrato unit on those Sire Larry Carlton offsets is by Goldo, and is showing up on a lot of high end boutique guitars. I have one on my Walsh and it's excellent.

I also like that it has actual JM pickups rather than P90s, and I love P90s, I just wanna try some JM ones :mrgreen:

I believe that's the Les Paul thread because you need a mortgage to buy one.
