Fender Readies 2022 Lineup: MIJ Reissues, Anniversary Jags & More

Fender has started to unveil its 2022 lineup, which features some very cool new guitars and effects: a re-do of MIJ reissues, 60th anniversary Jags, and a brand-new pedal series perfect for beginners—and that's even before we get to all the new Squiers.

Read on to see all the latest news from Fender.

JV Modified Series Recalls "Vintage" MIJ Reissues

Fender JV Modified 60s Custom Telecaster Rosewood in Firemist Gold Fender JV Modified 50s Telecaster Maple in Worn Blonde JV Modified '60s Stratocaster in Olympic White Fender JV Modified 50s Stratocaster HSS in 2-Color Sunburst

Back in the '80s, Fender Japan made great reissues of classic Fenders. Now that those MIJ models are themselves "vintage," Fender is recreating them in a small series. The JV Modified '60s Custom Telecaster, '50s Telecasters, '60s Stratocaster, and '50s Stratocaster have classic good looks—with the Firemist Gold Teles being especially eye-catching—and a soft "V" neck, an older shape that will feel a bit different than the modern "C" shape Fender often uses today.

Fender's Hammertone Pedals

Fender has unveiled a new pedal line called the Hammertone range, which consists of a whopping nine new effects. What's more is that each of these pedals retails for under $100 USD, making them significantly more affordable than Fender's previous pedal efforts and very competitive with the rest of the market in general. The pedals on offer include: an analog distortion and analog overdrive; a silicon-diode-based fuzz with switchable octave; a digital reverb with hall, room, and modulation algorithms; a simple but feature-rich flanger and chorus; a metal pedal aimed at high-gain enthusiasts; and a space delay aimed at the ambient player. All of these pedals are available for preorder now.
