    Ho boy. I clicked on this thinking, "How special could it really be?"
    But, damn, that IS special. That's firkin fantastic.

    Always have thought that if I lost my Nashville, I'd want a Baja.

    That's a sharp looking 2TB! I think you're right about the neck tint.....

    I typically dislike black guitars, but I did the black on black one...just wish the neck was tinted a little bit darker.

    Played them at NAMM. Preferred the black one. But, even the ones on display were on he hefty side ...

    Good move Fender! Looks like a black one should be heading my way later this year.

    One question is why do they seem to be on the heavy side - or are they??

    I know I'm in the minority here, but I really like the Baja in Desert Sand. Much better in person and a really unique Fender color. I can't recall seeing any other production Fender guitar available in Desert Sand.

    that 2tb is killer! it looks way slick w/ the blackguard. interesting how fender's switched to matte blackguards these days. no more nitro over-spray. . .

    :agree When I saw the title of this thread, I got a little jealous, but then I realized that my Desert Sand Baja looks better than any of the new colors. It definitely looks better in person than any picture I've seen.

    Ohh I want that sunburst one! That'd be a great backup guitar for my Nocaster.

    I think the Blonde would look better with a white guard BTW...

    Glad I've got a desert sand. The world doesn't need another blackguard wannabe.

    I thought they already had a blonde released.. My Baja is blonde with a black pickguard and that came stock. Hmm...

    Looks awesome. Never owned a baja but played several and liked everyone of them.
