Electrifying Mexican quartet Mana is the world’s biggest Latin rock band, thanks in no small part to the masterful guitar work of Sergio Vallin. Fender and Vallin have now collaborated closely on the Sergio Vallin Signature model, one of the most distinctive instruments in the Fender Artist series.
With a brand-new offset body shape, tonally versatile HSS pickup layout with special switching, and other special appointments, it’s a bold new Fender design loaded with pure Vallin sound, personality and playability.

Five-Way Rotary Switching
