Latest from the Fender camp- a trio of black Mex models (Noir Special Edition). All black, satin finish with red edge pickguards- these are the highlights, everything else is a typical Mex spec. It's releases like this that screams desperation but in this industry, variation of a theme is a norm. Buyers are somehow hooked on colour play, the industry cashing in on personal preferences. Anyway, this series of instruments are priced below the current generation of Mex models, seeing the initial figures, they should list below the $1K mark.
