HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (September 8, 2022) — With live performances re-emerging stronger than ever – from Coachella to Glastonbury – creators and musicians are seeking the resources to shine within a newly electrified music scene. Now more than ever Fender continues to be the go-to guitar brand for artists performing on stage globally. Today Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) unveiled a new range of products coming to stores and online marketplaces this holiday season. The guitars, amps and accessories introduced today demonstrate Fender’s commitment to catering to the needs of players at every stage of their musical journey, whether it’s in the comfort of their own homes, recording in the studio and performing live.

“We’re excited to announce our newest products stemming from Fender’s history of continuous innovation,” said Justin Norvell, Executive Vice President, Product at FMIC. “Leo Fender always said that artists are angels and our job is to give them ‘wings to fly’. We’re continuing that mission and expanding our vision of ‘filling the world with angels’ and that means giving them the tools to create in a seamless, personalized way. From the new made-in-Japan Aerodyne® Special Series Guitars offering a contemporary take on classic Fender® designs, to our widening selection of new accessories, we have something to elevate the playing experience for every musician.”

Introductions include the all-new, made-in-Japan Aerodyne® Special Series – guitars that blend aerodynamic lines and modern hardware with timeless silhouettes to create something instantly familiar and radically new. The series features sleek Stratocaster® guitars, a futuristic Telecaster® guitar and two new basses, all available in a range of never-before-seen finishes. In addition, Fender’s refreshed Rumble 800 Combo brings a lightweight-yet-powerful bass amp that’s perfect for any stage or studio; and a range of new accessories designed to make any player feel stage-ready.

“At FMIC, we’re continuously ensuring new products are in the pipeline to serve the growing community of players and creators,” added Tammy Van Donk, EVP FMIC Sales. “We continue to work hand in hand with our network of dealers as we all adjust to the shifting needs of players globally and across genres.”
