Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster: It’s An Electric Acoustic Telecaster! ’nuff Said

The glitz and glamor of a rock star is one thing, the hassle of switching guitars for acoustic and electric sound is another. I tell you what: keep the glitz and glamor, but skip the guitar switching with this: Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster. Yes, it is an electric acoustic stringed axe, but this ain’t no ordinary electric acoustic. It is the perfect hybrid of an acoustic and Fender’s iconic Telecaster which is, in Fender’s own words, “an entirely new instrument that blurs the lines between acoustic and electric guitars.” Continue reading Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster: It’s An Electric Acoustic Telecaster! ’nuff Said

Cardboard Fender Stratocaster Looks As Awesome As It Sounds

We have seen a myriad of stuff made out of cardboard, including a bicycle and even a car. So, it seems like nothing is impossible for cardboard, right? Well, for regular folks, cardboard will be cardboard and it has got to have some limits, but as far as Ernest Packaging is concerned, that statement holds true. If creating a snowboard, a skateboard and even a surfboard out of cardboard aren’t enough to prove the point that paper can create anything, perhaps, the company’s latest creation, a cardboard-based Fender Stratocaster guitar, would serve to reinforced the notion that paper can be made into anything if you have the expertise and willingness to try.

Love Whiskey and Guitar? Then This Whiskey Barrel Guitar Amp is For You

Rock n’ Roll and booze’s relationship goes back a long way. At some point, hard liquor such as whiskey were also involved. I don’t know how it happen, but I am guessing it has something to do with alcohol. However, we do not know the true rationale behind the whiskey barrel amp and we won’t even try to pretend we know. Somehow, just somehow, Fender is reminding us the unique relationship between the two. Officially dubbed as Fender “80 Proof” Blues Junior Amp, this super cool guitar amp is crafted from used whiskey barrels (not sure if the smell still holds though) and naturally, because of that, no two guitar amps will be alike, which is probably what hard rocking musicians with character prefer.

ABKCO x Fender Beggars Banquet Guitar

regardless of whether you are a huge The Rolling Stones fan, or simply an avid guitar enthusiast (well, more like collector), chances are you are going to love the ABKCO x Fender Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet Guitar. this limited edition Telecaster guitar is a collaborative effort by ABKCO Music & Records and Fender to mark ABKCO’s recent release of the “Clearly Classic” edition of three classic Rolling Stones albums on clear vinyl, of which includes the album with the controversial cover of its time, Beggars Banquet (1968). the cover depicts a graffiti-defaced bathroom, which, get this, was “deemed too controversial for domestic consumption in the U.S.“(!?) and so, it is no surprise that this is the cover of choice for adorning this celebratory, full-featured Fender Telecaster. while the front is decorated with the Beggars Banquet cover, the back of the guitar features the gatefold feast artwork, along with a laser-etched neck plate.

in its first ever collaboration with an artiste, Fender has teamed up with rock/blues legend Eric Clapton to introduce the Eric Clapton Signature Amplifiers or EC series amp, in short. the three amps in the series, the EC Twinolux, EC Tremolux and EC Vibro-Champ are built by hand to the exact specifications of Clapton and are based on Fender’s original 50s-era amps, the 57′ Twin, 57′ Deluxe and 57′ Champ. drawing its inspiration from its good old ancestors, these amps are armed with 50s era output tube bias tremolo which is said to give more ‘throbbing pulse’ than the modern iterations, and a switchable power attenuator. other premium features include finger-joined solid pine cabinet for a warm tone, a lacquered tweed covering with vintage brownish gold grille cloth and finally, a leather handle tops up the package. with such premium features and a big name like Eric Clapton in the mix, you know these amps aren’t going to be regular priced. so if you want one, then be prepared to shell out $1,399.99 for the EC Vibro-Champ, $2,799.99 for the EC Tremolux and a hefty $4,199.99 for the top of the line EC Twinolux.
