Fender Custom Shop has launched a slew of new guitars for Summer NAMM.
Pacific Battle Strat and Tele
Not too sure why guitars would be made to look like WW2 fighter planes, the new Pacific Battle guitars are made with ash bodies in transparent green stain and tarnished hardware to achieve the bomber place look.
Artisan Thinline Koa Strat
Beautiful looking semi-hollow Strat. Plenty of exotic woods used here ranging from the okoume body, roasted AAA birdseye maple neck, blackwood fingerboard, and of course the koa top.
Front Row Legend Esquire
Stunning Tele here made from relaimed yellow cedar from the actual benches of the famed Hollywood Bowl. Each guitar is unique with it’s own nail holes, cracks and markings. This is probably Fender’s answer to the recent trend of making guitars from reclaimed woods.
LTD 50’s Thinline Tele Relic
Another beauty here with its floral paisley finish. This is a good blend of modern and vintage elements. We get soft V neck and brass saddles to go along with more modern features such as Greasebucket tone control and Texas Special pickups.
