At the Winter NAMM 2020, the Mexican reissues of the Fender Lead models caught my eye. A few weeks later, here is now the complete test of the two Mexican Fender Lead series, the Lead II and the Lead III. To make it simple, the II is equipped with two single-coil pickups and the III with two humbuckers.

Both guitars were plugged into a Marshall 6101 tube amp using the 3 channels clean, crunch and lead. The miking was done via the Ox Box Universal Audio.
