Instead of rosewood, the models with dark fretboards are now made of pau ferro (ironwood), a material that does not differ noticeably from the old, tried-and-tested rosewood in terms of sound and feel. Maple remained maple, of course. The headstock got the old Spagetti logo of the 60s. And the pickups were also tinkered with a little.
In addition to the familiar black and sunburst colours, the manufacturer presents us with a few variations that are definitely tasteful.Fender's Mexicans are instruments that have matured through tradition and experience, carefully assembled from high-quality components, working instruments with the charm of 60 years of music history.
