Fender

  • For its limited edition 2020 Parallel Universe series guitars, Fender has mashed up different models to create oddball new ones. And the latest is possibly the oddest of them all – the Maverick Dorado.
  • Back in January, Fender hit California's National Association of Music Merchants show with a bunch of stunning Custom Shop guitars, and new models dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Broadcaster. Now these birthday boys have gone on sale.
  • Last year, Fender broke into new territory with the launch of the American Acoustasonic Telecaster, which came with the tagline – "acoustic, electric and everything inbetween." The iconic brand has now added a Stratocaster to the lineup.
  • Fender Custom Shop's Yuriy Shishkov has impressed us before with his stunning one-off creations, including the Master Repeater Tele and the Studioliner. His latest offering for NAMM 2020 is a bejeweled Stratocaster inspired by a Fabergé egg.
  • Fender has officially announced the American Ultra Series electric guitars and basses. With the release, the iconic brand is aiming to set "a new industry standard for precision, performance and feel."
  • ​HBO's adaptation on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire has entered its final season, and to bid the epic fantasy TV series a fond farewell, Fender's Custom Shop has created three special guitars dubbed the Game of Thrones Sigil Collection.​
  • ​Fender may be best known for its Strat and Tele guitars, but the instrument maker isn't afraid to try something new. Last year's Parallel Universe series mashed up bits from different Fender guitars, and now it's time to take a trip to an Alternate Reality with the release of the Powercaster.​
  • Fender may be forever associated with Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars, but that hasn't stopped the company experimenting with form and function over the years. Now Fender has come up with an acoustic guitar that can be an electric when you need it – the American Acoustasonic Telecaster.
  • ​It takes something special to stand out in the completely saturated Bluetooth speaker market these days, like say, taking the shape of a humanoid robot or a dining table. Then again, you could bear the name of an iconic instrument maker, like the very first set of Bluetooth speakers from Fender.
  • ​​If you want a guitar that's dripping with history then you can either hit the auctions or grab yourself an instrument made using wood from old buildings. Fender has chosen the latter for a limited edition Telecaster from Yuriy Shishkov​ that makes use of bench boards from the Hollywood Bowl.​
  • This year marks the 30th anniversary of Fender's Custom Shop, the limited edition/special order arm of the famous marque that turns "musical dreams into reality." To celebrate, the Custom Shop tasked eight of its founding craftsmen to create their ultimate guitars.
  • ​Around this time last year, we featured a jaw-dropping Prestige Collection Telecaster based on an 18th century pocket watch. Fender's Yuriy Shishkov has been raiding the company's jewelry box again, this time to produce the Strat-shaped Studioliner that riffs off of a 1930s Kodak camera.
