Why is this a "new product" at MF?

    huh. odd - it says "Blonde" in the description, but is shown in tweed.

    I don't think they had a blonde one before, and maybe the photo is just wrong. (I believe the tweed in general is a GC exclusive, and was $539 last I checked)

    because it's in the "hot rod" series.

    i think it's probably something to do with the fact that the NOS Tweed blues junior sounded so much better than the regular ones. so, why not bring something out that looks the same but probably sounds worse than the regular ones so people will get confused and buy both?

    maybe i'm just cynical.

    really? i'm just going by the titles on MF, Gc.com, guitar center tags, etc., but they never said hot rod before a couple weeks ago.

    Fender Frontline and Fender.com have always said it was in the "Hot Rod" series. It, the Pro-Jr., And all the "Hot Rod" Amps.

    Didn't Fender have a blonde BJ before and discontinue it? I've seen older ones for sale on eBay.
