  3. Bring back an (updated) older model...

    Squier Ultra Contemporary Katana. The Fender version would likely be more difficult to market. :)

    The Boxer...1 string, 6 frets, no knobs...played wearing boxing gloves.

    The Fender B3 (Beer Belly Bass) - deep back contour for less-than-svelte among us. Includes beer bottle opener and koozie on the headstock.

    The Fender IKEA Special Edition...you assemble it yourself.

    The Fender 12px-Prince_logo.svg.png Tribute...A funk machine but comes only in purple.

    It's significant because the pickup uses magnets that were stored in a box that Abby Ybarra once walked past. A steal at only $6899.

  12. The most heavy relic job on a bass, ever.

    How about a Made in North Korea Commemorative Original American Telecaster bass, known by its acronym "MiNK COAT".

    If they brought the Stu Hamm-endorsed Urge bass back, they could have the Fender Urge Bass American Reissue, aka the "FUBAR".

    Or maybe a John Paul Jones signature Jazz, with a JPJ pickup configuration?

    I guess none of those are really new names though. So perhaps the Fender Stimulus, so you can spend your cheque [apologies to some of you for the non-US English spelling] on one.

  18. Weighs a ton, the body is encased in 1/8 " thick slightly cloudy poly (with a couple of bits chipped of an edge to prove it's depth) incredibly loose neck pocket and no existent quality control. The sales slogan could be, "Featuring all the care and quality control you'd expect from the suits at a 70's corporate giant." or "From unloved bastard step child then, to nostalgic and quirky collectors item today."

    I suck, but nobody really notices
    But, then it wouldn't be a strat. Like, I'm talking input plate, switch, pickguard, the works. Only bigger, with 4 strings. I'd so buy that.
