Fender introduces new, out-of-the-ordinary models to its innovative and popular Pawn Shop series. With a few modern touches, the Pawn Shop Super-Sonic model resurrects an unusual, short-lived and increasingly collectible ancestor of the late 1990s, the Squier Vista Series Super-Sonic guitar. Very little about the Pawn Shop Super-Sonic isn’t highly distinctive—from its diminutive offset “reverse” body (resembling an upside-down Jazzmaster or Jaguar) and upside-down headstock to its short scale (24″) and dual canted Atomic humbucking pickups.
