I am a big fan of the Fender Rhodes Pianos and I also like the Comtempo Organ from the 60s.
Do you think that Fender will ever produce Keyboard instruments?
If they would start a partnership with the new owners of the Rhodes brand and start to produce the Rhodes Mark I and the...
yesterday I talked to a former bandmate about the using specific gear for 70s music.
We asked ourselfes if it looks strange using early 60s style Fender guitars (mint green pickguards, small Strat headstock, custom colours like sonic blue...) to play hardrock and funk from the...
I have an enclosure of a Fender Blender Reissue, which I would like to use for a Dual Overdrive Pedal project.
The enclosure is a bit small so I'm thinking about using modern D-Shaft Potis to save space, but I would like to put the original Knobs of the Fender Blender on them...
I always thought that all Fender guitars with Rosewood Fingerboard from 1959-1969 had no Trussrod plug and no Skunk Stripe, but today I found the Fender catalog from 1959 and I saw a Telecaster, Strat, Esquire and P-Bass with Trussrod plugs.
Does anyone know somthing about...
I found this lovely Fender catalog from 1966/1967.
It's amazing to see these lovely instruments. I love every single item (Electric XII, Fender Rhodes, Acoustics, Coronados, Amps)
I'm thinking about buying a cheap vintage Fender guitar (under $ 1500).
Which one of these would be your favourite?
- Late 70s Strat
- 70s Mustang, Musicmaster, Bronco
- 60s Coronado I, II or XII
- 70s Jazzmaster or Jaguar (they're a bit hard to find)
I'm thinking about getting my next Fender guitar.
I already own the following guitars:
-Mexico Standard Tele with Vintage Noiseless Pickups
- 60s Classic Tele with Baja Neck and Pickups
- 60s Classic Player Strat with Vintage Noiseless Pickups
- P-Bass Copy
- Fender DG 7
I own a TMDR and a Pathfinder 15R and when I'm playing them at low volumes in my bedroom IMHO the Vox sounds nicer than the Fender (even though I use the 0.2 watt setting).
I'm asking my self if the speaker of the TM just needs to break in (I own it since three month) or if...
Hello everyone, I own a P-Bass Copy like the one on the picture and I noticed that the bodyshape is different from Original. Do you think that it would be complicated to reshape it? Do all Fender P-Bass Bodys have exactly the same shape since 1957?
today I bought a Fender Silverface Champ for 300 € ($ 360) without testing it. Here in Europe they usually sell for 600 - 750 €.
The seller said that the amp is working but that I have to replace the tubes.
What do you think how much would it cost to service this amp? What...
I'm ugrading my P-Bass Copy which I got when I was 11. I played it a lot in the last 23 years but I never liked the colour combination (Black body, white pickguard and Roseood Neck), because I find it boring.
To change the look I already ordered ashtray covers and a thumbrest...
I really like to see combinations of classic Fender guitars with Fender amps from the same era (reissues included). The pictures from old Fender catalogues are just amazing
50s Tele/Strat with Tweed amp
60s Tele/Strat with Blackface
70s Tele/Strat with Silverface...
Hello, since a year I dream of owning a Fender Alternate Reality Electric XII.
Pro: I play a lot of music from the 60s so there are many songs which I would like to play with it.
Cons: Price, no vintage specs (shape, no rotary switch, bridge), I already own a Martin D12x1 and nine other...
I'm planning to buy a used TMDR. Here in Europe you can get them new for 929 €.
A guy is offering me his used TMDR with warranty for 750 €.
Would you buy it? Or do you think that the prices will drop in the next few month, when there are more used TM amps on the market.
I was wondering if there is someone on this forum owning one of each classic Fender models (original, reissue, partscaster, copy)?
Coronado I, II and XII
I need a Tremolo arm for my Fender Mexico Standard Stratocaster (post 2006).
Can anyone tell me the partsnumber? Is there also a Tip in vintage white or cream that will fit on it?
Thank you very much
a few month ago I left my band and sold my DRRI, because since than I only play at home and the Deluxe was much too loud for my needs.
A few weeks ago I bought a Vox VT 20, but I never bonded with it
Yesterday I picked up a cheap Vox Parhfinder 15 (non Reverb) and I'm really...
Hello, I once had a chinese Epiphone Casino, but I never liked it because of quality problems and because I'm more a Fender guy and the epiphone felt strange to me. It was always the black sheep in my collection, so I sold it.
What is your least favourite guitar in your collection?
when I'm playing with my band I plug my Martin D1-R with a k&k pure western mini pickup into my Boss GE 7 and than directly into my Amp or the PA.
My bandmates say that they don't like my sound because I don't use a compressor, but I want my guitar to sound as natural as...
