This special edition guitar is light in weight and heavy in tone thanks to its exceptional light ash body, birdseye maple neck and fingerboard, and Seymour Duncan pickups. These pickups are perfect for the ash body with a warmer, sweeter tone that eliminates the brittle, glassy sound associated with lots of newer instruments. They allow free, more natural string vibration and greater sustain. Other features include abalone inlays, 22 medium-jumbo frets, two-point synchronized tremolo and chrome hardware. This is a striking instrument with the perfect combination of tone and playability.
Founded in 1946, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation has been an American icon for over 50 years. In that time, Fender’s contribution to the evolving sound of contemporary music has been global and continuous. By introducing the first commercially viable solidbody electric guitar, the first electric bass and countless classic amplifiers, Fender musical instruments have left their mark on jazz, blues, country, rock and many other styles of popular music.
Today, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation continues to offer its timeless electric guitar designs such as the Telecaster and Stratocaster to players around the world, but the Fender family has grown to include several distinctive musical instrument brands, including Squier, Guild, and Benedetto. At the pinnacle of guitar artistry, FMIC’s Fender Custom Shop in Corona, California, and its Guild Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee, offer hand-crafted custom guitars built to suit the tastes of individual players. Since 1995, Guild Guitars has also been a part of FMIC, and the Guild line of American-made acoustic and archtop electric guitars includes Benedetto brand archtop jazz guitars, considered by many to be the finest jazz guitars being made today. FMIC also distributes the Manuel Rodriguez brand of fine Spanish-made classical guitars.
FMIC’s Squier line of guitars, basses, amps and pro audio gear, combined with its full line of Fender acoustic instruments, offer a wide range of fretted instruments for the value-conscious musician. Under the Fender brand, FMIC manufactures a full line of professional-grade guitar and bass amplifiers inspired by its long tradition of innovation. In pro audio, Fender manufactures a complete line of professional sound equipment under the Fender brand, including the innovative Passport portable sound system. Fender also offers a complete line of accessories, including strings, authorized replacement parts, cases, straps and Fender logo sportswear.
