To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Custom Shop, Fender has brought eight of their original Master Builders to “let their imaginations run loose and design the ultimate guitars”.
The guitars will be released monthly and each will be limited to 30 pieces world-wide. Expect high premiums for such works of art. That J.W. Black Strat is pure Stratheaven.

Joyo has added the Iron Loop pedal to their Ironman range of mini pedals.
The new looper allows up to 20 minutes of recording and should be good for users who like to keep their pedals from the same brands/series.
