@xylo I worked on the marketing team for fender for 9 years and the first electric I bought was the Jim Adkins tele, the transparent black one. Mine’s a prototype tho, has block inlays and the f-hole is slightly bigger and a little closer to the base, also no signature. It’s a sweet guitar for sure. Not sure they have any other neck-through teles in the pipeline, or any others w p90s.
I was able to work on the branding for quite a few of the artist models that came out during my time there (my favorite project was the Cobain Jag) and one thing we ALWAYS tried to push the artist to avoid was signatures on the front of the headstock. Next best thing was sig on the back headstock but we always tried to sell them on putting it on the neck plate, as this is something that could easily be swapped out if the customer really didnt want the band/artist affiliation.
The Marr Jag was/is so popular cos it fixed just about everything wrong with a Jaguar. Loads of people buy that that dont know who Marr or the Smiths are.
