Over the past few months I’ve been delving into the world of the extended guitar and this looks like an interesting one – the quality of Squiers is tip top these days and I think that this would be a lot of fun. I’m not sure about the Antigua burst though – brings back memories of dodgy 1980 Stratocasters. Here’s the press release

“Squier presents one of its most distinctive instruments ever in the deeply resounding form of the Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster guitar.

Tuned A to A and featuring the 30” scale length of a short-scale bass, it lends a rumbling baritone sonic character all its own to your sound and features the authentic vintage-style look of Fender’s seldom-seen Antigua finish, with a matching pickguard. Fingerboard binding and white pearloid block inlays impart even more elegance, and that deep one-of-a-kind twang rocks loud and clear from a pair of Dual Duncan Designed single-coil Jazzmaster pickups. All together, the Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster makes for a singularly exciting Squier playing experience.”
