Fender is proud to introduce several new and updated series and models featuring popular designs, and upgraded tops and period-correct finishes on many of its most popular instruments.

The Cabronita Series added two new instruments to it, including the Cabronita Telecaster Thinline and Cabronita Precision Bass guitar. The Cabronita Telecaster Thinline combines Fender's striking Cabronita styling with traditional lightweight Thinline design. With its semi-hollow ash body with f hole and dual Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups, it's a truly distinctive and powerful take on Fender's first electric guitar. Other features include a modern "C"-shaped maple neck with urethane finish, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays, three-way toggle pickup switching, single-ply pickguard (black on White Blonde and Two-color Sunburst models; white on Shoreline Gold model), single knurled-chrome master volume control and vintage-style string-through-body Stratocaster hard-tail bridge.

The Cabronita Precision Bass guitar takes Fender's revolutionary first bass and decks it out in distinctive and powerful Cabronita style. Features include an alder body with forearm contour, "C"-shaped maple neck with gloss urethane finish, 9.5"-radius maple cap fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays, single Fideli'Tron humbucking bass pickup, single-ply pickguard (black on 2-Color Sunburst model; white on Black and Candy Apple Red models), modern High Mass bridge, knurled chrome control knobs (master volume, master tone) side-mounted output jack and vintage-style reverse tuners.

These models include the Standard Stratocaster Plus Top, Standard Stratocaster Plus Top Left-Handed, Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top and Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo.

    If you like the Telecaster look at the "G&L Bluesboy" you'll like it. "G&L is more Fender than Fender"
    Wow ... I have never seen these before.
    Yeah, these came out quite some time ago, honestly. But on a different topic i really want an American Standard with the custom shop pickups. Those are sick, especially in white.
    I'm lusting for that thin line telecaster too. Dam ultimate guitar and their guitar porn!!
    Please, please, please, please make that cabronita telecaster left-handed!!!
