FENDER | 2021 NEW RELEASES
A flurry of Fenders, featuring new models and colorways!
Fender is in full force for 2021 with an exciting catalog loaded with American Ultra Luxe and Noventa designs, custom Artist models, Squier additions, classic silverface Amplifier reissues, and 75th Anniversary heirlooms!
How about a pat on the back? Celebrating 75 years as a solid-bodied staple, Fender releases four core models immortalizing Leo's visionary designs. Adorned with premium gold hardware and buttery 2-Color Bourbon Burst finishes, the 75th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazz Bass, and Precision Bass scream luxury with one-piece maple necks, comfortable vintage-style profiles, anniversary ingots and engraved neck plates, and killer Custom Shop pickups.
The Fender 75th Anniversary Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazz Bass, and Precision bass keep the party going with Vintera Series pickups, modern neck profiles, matching headstocks, and a limited Diamond Anniversary metallic finish.
Fender upgrades the American Ultra series with stainless steel frets and captivating new colorways to create American Ultra Luxe, Stratocasters and Telecasters with augmented neck profiles, 10"-14" compound radius fretboards, and progressive pickup sets. For the American Ultra Luxe Stratocaster and American Luxe Telecaster, Fender selects Ultra Vintage Noiseless pickups and advanced wiring for versatile, hum-free tone.
On the American Luxe Stratocaster HSS, Fender loads up with dual Ultra Noiseless Hot single-coils and an Ultra Noiseless Double Tap humbucker. They double down on the American Luxe Telecaster HH with two Custom Double Tap humbucking pickups, and they outfit both with Floyd Rose Original Double-Locking 2-Point Tremolo bridges.
Fender finally opens American Ultra to the lefties, adding a southpaw Stratocaster to the lineup of advanced, performance-minded solid-bodies.
Five Fender Artist models join the lineup for 2021. The Fender Artist Ben Gibbard Mustang recreates the artist's modified original, including custom specs like a chambered ash body, modern "C"-shape maple neck, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard, 6-saddle Vintage-Style Mustang hardtail bridge, and dual Vintage-Style single-coils with three-way rotary switching.
The Fender Artist Chrissie Hynde Telecaster is the real thing, replicating the artist's guitar of choice with a custom mid-'60s "C"-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard, Vintage-Style '50s Single-Coil Tele pickups, and a Faded Ice Blue Road Worn lacquer finish over a solid alder body.
Fender goes small with this next Artist model. Like Harrison himself, the Dhani Harrison Uke is a convenient collaborator, tenor-sized, constructed from ovangkol with a custom ¾" body depth, upgraded Fender electronics with tone knob, and dual Sapphire Blue or Turquoise finishes.
Fender favors one of country music's greatest gear heads with the Artist Jason Isbell Custom Telecaster, a Chocolate Sunburst-styled shredder specced with Specially Voiced Jason Isbell Telecaster Single-Coil pickups, a '59-style Telecaster body, and vintage-inspired mid-'60s "C"-shape maple neck with 21-fret rosewood fingerboard.
There's no clashing with the Matte Black Fender Artist Joe Strummer Campfire. Inspired by the artist's informal campfire gatherings at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in Pilton, Somerset, England, this all-black Sitka spruce and mahogany acoustic speaks loudly and clearly. What you say is up to you.
Fender packs in the P-90s with the Noventa Series, Stratocasters, Jazzmasters, and Telecasters outfitted with comfortable maple necks, simple electronics, and MP-90 single-coil pickups.
Fender modifies a few of their classic amplifiers for the modern player. The Fender Vintage Modified '68 Custom Vibro Champ improves on the original 5-watt, swapping in a larger 10" speaker and adding DSP hall reverb. The Vintage Modified '68 Custom Pro Reverb moves the model in the other direction, downsizing to a single 12" speaker and adding a middle tone control.
Fender fills out its 2021 offerings with the Mustang Micro Headphone Amp, a pocket-sized personal amp with an onboard DSP featuring 12 models from the Mustang GTX amplifier, 13 effect modes with parameter modify control, adjustable EQ, and Bluetooth streaming for instant play-alongs.
Squier refreshes elements of the Contemporary Series for 2021, adding five new high-performance models. The Squier Contemporary Telecaster RH is a progressive, double-humbucker take on the twangy classic, featuring SQR rail and SQR Atomic humbucking pickups for hum-free tone and a roasted maple neck with a sculpted neck heel for a high-performance feel.
The Squier Contemporary Stratocaster Special and Contemporary Stratocaster Special HT, outfitted with two-point synchronized tremolo and hardtail bridges, respectively, are similarly progressive. Both feature roasted maple necks, sculpted neck heels for better fret access, and "Special" SQR pickup configurations for a more dynamic, modern response.
Squier's Contemporary Stratocaster HH FR beefs up the classic, swapping in dual SQR Atomic humbucking pickups wired with five-way, coil-tap switching, and finishing it off with a Floyd Rose by Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo bridge.
Quite the advanced offset, the Squier Contemporary Jaguar HH ST boasts dual SQR Atomic humbucking pickups, wired with coil-tap and, on the upper control plate, series-parallel switching for extensive tonal options. As with all Contemporary Series models for 2021, the Squier Contemporary Jaguar HH ST's roasted maple neck features a sculpted neck heel for a fast, limitless playing experience.
