Fender 75th Anniversary Collection

In 1946 Clarence “Leo” Fender established the Fender Electric Instrument Company and changed the trajectory of modern music forever. His inventive mind revolutionized the electric guitar and bass, reshaping modern music in the process. The 75th Anniversary Collection celebrates Leo’s bold, revolutionary designs with special editions that honour the most iconic Fender guitars and basses; Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass and Jazz Bass.

75th Anniversary Stratocaster® with VINTERA ‘60S PICKUPS - These pickups have been voiced to provide authentic 60s vibe. They’re full of the bell-like, crystalline tone that made Fender instruments famous.

75th Anniversary Telecaster® with VINTERA ‘50S PICKUPS - We recreated our favourite set of ‘50s Telecaster pickups. They’re full of the twangy, well-defined tone that made Fender instruments famous.

75th Anniversary Precision Bass® with VINTERA ‘50S P BASS PICKUP - An accurate recreation of the original split-coil P Bass pickups of the fifties, this pickup delivers the punchy, rumbling tone that made the Precision a classic.

75th Anniversary Jazz Bass® with VINTERA ‘60S PICKUPS - An accurate recreation of the original ‘60s Jazz Bass single-coils, these pickups provide the growling, punchy tone that made Fender famous.

ANNIVERSARY NECK PLATE - MX models feature an engraved 75th-anniversary neck plate.

 

Fender Noventa Series

The Noventa series delivers powerful tones, modern playability and rugged attitude for the player that likes a smouldering look and sound. Fender guitars are often known for their chiming brilliance but loaded with Fender MP-90 pickups, the Noventa series resounds with midrange bite, snarling highs and warm and whiskey-throated lows. These pickups offer a wide array of versatile and potent tones – suitable for everything from hard rock to jazz and anything in-between. The Noventa series is comprised of Telecaster, Stratocaster and Jazzmaster models and each one cooks up a smooth blend of modern and vintage playability that remains distinctly Fender.

9.5” FINGERBOARD RADIUS - The 9.5” radius strikes an ideal balance between vintage and modern playability - rounded for comfortable chording yet flat enough for easy bending.

MEDIUM JUMBO FRETS - Medium Jumbo frets deliver modern playability, especially effective for bending and playing up the neck in the higher registers.

ALDER BODY - A classic Fender tonewood dating back to the 1950s, alder is tonally well-balanced with even-tempered highs, midrange and low-end.

 

Fender Noventa Telecaster

 

Noventa Telecaster® NOVENTA SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS - The dual Noventa pickups provide hot single-coil tones with enhanced midrange presence and touch-sensitive playability perfect for bell-like cleans or throaty, overdriven leads.

Noventa Telecaster® - "60S C" NECK PROFILE - Remarkably comfortable, the "60s C"-shaped neck profile is sculpted for a substantial playing feel.

 

Fender Noventa Stratocaster

Noventa Stratocaster® SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS - The dual Noventa pickups provide hot single-coil tones with enhanced midrange presence and touch-sensitive playability perfect for bell-like cleans or throaty, overdriven leads.

Noventa Stratocaster®/Jazzmaster® - MODERN “C” NECK SHAPE - With a shallow “C”-shape at the nut and a slow taper towards the slightly thicker 12th fret, the Modern “C” neck profile is designed for ultimate comfort and performance.

Fender Noventa Jazzmaster

Noventa Jazzmaster® NOVENTA SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS - The triple Noventa pickups provide hot single-coil tones with enhanced midrange presence and touch-sensitive playability perfect for bell-like cleans or throaty, overdriven leads.

Joe Strummer Campfire

Designed in conjunction with the Strummer estate, the Joe Strummer Campfire pays homage to the Clash’s articulate and fiery co-founder, lyricist, rhythm guitarist and lead singer. All his life, he vigorously championed individuality, self-expression and change, and firmly believed in the power of community. Inspired by the legendary campfires that Strummer held backstage at the Glastonbury festival the Campfire reflects Strummer’s aesthetic and allows the legacy of Joe Strummer to continue live on, grow louder, and shake up the establishment.

TILT-BACK HEADSTOCK - A tilt-back headstock increases the break angle over the nut, allowing for enhanced sustain. The Strat-style 6-in-line design imparts Fender’s rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument.

SOLID SPRUCE TOP - The soundboard provides the most important tonal element of an acoustic guitar. Spruce is the standard choice, as few woods can beat its strength, sound, and dynamic range. Solid spruce tops are known for opening up and sounding better over time.

DELUXE GIG BAG - With comfortable padded backpack straps, tough and durable outer material, multiple pockets and a rubber boot for drop protection, the included deluxe gig bag provides top-notch protection while travelling.

 

Dhani Harrison Signature Ukulele

 

Dhani Harrison has an extremely diverse and successful music career.  Despite being a multi-instrumentalist and spending as much time on-stage as he does in the studio scoring movies and tv shows, he has always been drawn towards the ukulele. His start with the instrument began early in his childhood and he has continued to use it well into his professional career. Spending as much time as he does with the instrument it was only natural to have the want for a cosmetically and functionally unique ukulele made for him.

FENDER-DESIGNED PREAMP SYSTEM - Designed by Fender, the preamp features separate volume and tone controls, as well as a built-in tuner.

¾” BODY DEPTH - This tenor ukulele features a ¾” body depth, which gives it unique tonal characteristics.

ORIGINAL INLAYS & ENGRAVINGS - Chosen by Dhani, his signature ukulele’s unique aesthetics include symbols that personally inspire him.
