Fender has launched its newest Mexican-made line of electric guitars, the Noventa series.

Built with alder bodies, 21 medium-jumbo frets, 9.5” radius pau ferro fingerboards, and – most notably – Fender MP-90 pickups, these stylish mid-price electrics promise, in Fender's words, "extraordinary range and versatility with classic midrange bite, crisp highs and warm, smooth lows."

Each of the Noventa guitars features a different neck shape – a '60s C for the Tele, a thick soft V for the Jazzmaster, and a modern C for the Strat. Hardware-wise, the Strat features a six-saddle hardtail, the Jazzmaster packs an Adjusto-Matic bridge with a floating tremolo system, while the Tele features a "cut" Telecaster bridge.

Controls for the MP-90s are: a single volume and tone, plus a three-position blade selector on the Strat, a single volume and tone on the Tele, and, intriguingly, a five-way Strat-style blade switch on the Jazzmaster, in addition to the volume and tone knobs.
