The Fender Sergio Vallin Signature electric guitar combines the guitarist’s unique traits into an instrument that perfectly reflects his idiosyncratic style. Vallin’s signature model is at once understated yet stylish, with a modest setup that is highly versatile and with hardware that plays like a dream. Best of all, the tonality of this model enables you to switch between many musical styles with incredible ease.
Vallin’s tenure as lead guitarist for Latin American titans, Mana, has seen him grace stages around the world, playing to millions and winning countless awards in the process. As a producer, he has recorded and played with one of his own guitar heroes, the amazing Carlos Santana. Combining his love of classical, Latin, and rock music, Vallin is known for his deft fretwork and fearless performances. In keeping with this, Fender has worked closely with the man himself to ensure this model is truly worthy of his name.
To accommodate Vallin's genre-hopping playing style, the body has been carefully crafted to play as comfortably as possible. The deftly contoured top provides the perfect resting position for the picking arm, whilst remaining clear so that both fast and slow moving techniques can be executed with ease. Whether he's tackling Latin guitar, laying down some funk, or taking to the skies with searing rock solos, the underlying factor is precision. Thanks to the lightweight feel of the body, this signature model is a joy to wield, and you can easily burn through hours of playing without even breaking a sweat. Fitted to the body is a tremolo system that enables you to inject subtle vibrato into every note.
Fitted to the body is a fast-playing maple neck that rewards speed and precision with an exceptionally comfortable playing feel. Performing quick chord transitions, speedy scale runs, arpeggios, or deft legato is a joy thanks to the slender profile. The deep double-cutaway body design ensures ready access to the entire neck, giving you the freedom to execute intricate licks with ease. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous feeling rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays.
In order to suit Vallin's versatile playing ability, his signature model is equipped with an FSV humbucker in the bridge, and a pair of FSV single-coils in the middle and neck positions. Control remains simple, with a single master volume pot to control the output level. A unique feature on the Vallin model, is a 5-way pickup selector pot, instead of a switch. Switching pickups can be done with ease, and you can rest assured that no accidents will happen - such as inadvertently switching pickups - when you're rocking out.
The Fender Sergio Vallin Signature electric guitar in black is a heavenly model that is a joy to play, offers fantastic tonal versatility, and doesn't look to bad either.
