Cordoba has announced the Mini II which now features standard guitar E tuning.
Guitar players should feel more at home now that the Mini II has a longer scale length than its predecessor (580mm vs 510mm) and standard tuning (E tuning vs A tuning).
Comes in all mahogany, all flame maple and spruce/ebony construction. This should be popular among buyers looking for travel guitars.

Ola Englund’s Solar brand has announced eight new models.
E2.6 in Trans Blood Red Matte pictured above
Quite impressive for a new brand that’s only started late last year. The new guitars consist of left-handed models, some 7-strings and a couple of familiar shapes like the Explorer.

Cool guitars that are aimed at a specific target audience. It’s great to see new stuffs like this.

More Ltd Ed guitars from Fender as they celebrate the Jazzmaster’s 60th Anniversary.
Three gorgeous models are available and the Daphne Blue one with the Filter’Tron pickups looks really good. Wow.
60th Anniversary ’58 Jazzmaster
Made to look like the original prototype launched in 1958, this one has all the right ingredients. Offered only in Sunburst.
Most likely named this way due to the triple Filter’Tron pickups, this looks really cool in the Daphne Blue finish.
60th Anniversary Classic Jazzmaster
Block inlays and matching headstock give this something unusual. The Classic Jazzmaster is reproduction of the 1966 model and comes in four colours.

Fender has announced the Ltd Ed American Elite HSS Tele.
Second release of the Parallel Universe series, this one features Strat layout on a Tele body.
The forearm and belly cuts, HSS pickup configuration and 5-way switch are taken from the Strat. But exclusive features such as compound radius and Pure Vintage ’64 pickups are quite interesting.

New signature model from Epiphone.
Interesting take on the Explorer shape with some army-themed motifs.
Pickups are the classic unbeatable 59/JB combo so this should command a premium over other Epis if it comes to SG.
As with all recent signature models, it comes with special certs and a fitted bag.
