Fender and Squier | 2022 New Releases
Fender and Squier are back for 2022, introducing brand new acoustic series, accessible effect pedals, and other models from Fender. As well, Squier releases 40th Anniversary & Contemporary models ! Read on to learn more about 2022 new releases from Fender and Squier!
New to Fender, being inspired by the “Golden Era,” the JV Modified Series takes cues from the highly sought-after early-1980s “Japanese Vintage” reissues and features modifications to suit the needs of today’s guitarists. These instruments combine the best of vintage aesthetics with modern playability.
And to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar, Fender is releasing a special collection of limited-edition versions, including vintage-style and Ultra Luxe Jaguar models. For players who demand the ultimate in performance and tone, American Ultra is Fender's most advanced series of guitars and basses, and this Jaguar will not disappoint.
For the last few years, Fender’s presence in the traditional acoustic market has grown. To expand the offering in Fender Acoustics, Fender introduces the Paramount series which offers something for consumers who want a more traditional acoustic or bluegrass instrument, as this series pays homage to the acoustic guitars of the 1930s and ‘40s. The new Paramount series is comprised of three acoustic-electric models, along with a trio of bluegrass instruments.
Introducing Hammertone Pedals. The newest additions to the Fender Effects family, these pedals are an accessible entry to the world of pedals. Designed to deliver incredible tones and unique features in a compact form factor, all at an unbelievably accessible price point.
The four analog models include: Distortion, Overdrive, Fuzz and Metal, while the Digital pedal effects include: Reverb, Chorus, Delay, Space Delay, and Fender Effect’s first ever Flanger. Hammertone’s easy to use controls and player friendly features mean these pedals are perfect for all players, from beginners to professionals.
Two new Fender Artist Signatures are set to release in 2022. Based on the original Telecaster created for Harrison by Roger Rossmeisel, this guitar remains true to its heritage with the classic style and unique tone only an all-rosewood guitar can produce. The George Harrison Telecaster is an homage to a master and destined to become a treasured addition to any collection.
Another new Artist Signature model to release is the Nile Rodgers Hitmaker Stratocaster. Rodgers has written, produced, and performed on recordings that have sold more than 500-million albums globally. Every hit record he’s produced has shared one essential element: the used 1960 Fender hardtail Stratocaster® Nile bought in a Miami music shop. Voiced to replicate the vintage single-coils in Nile’s original Hitmaker, these custom Strat pickups deliver the quack, chime and bell-like clarity needed to get Nile’s famous tones. Other features include a hard-tail string-through bridge with period-correct bent- steel saddles, an eye-catching mirrored chrome- plated brass pickguard, locking Sperzel® tuners and a set of white speed knobs.
With a multitude of projects over the years headlined by a nearly two-decade stint with rock powerhouse Guns N’ Roses, Richard Fortus is one of the most respected guitarists in the world.
True to his dreams, the G6636-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon™ Center Block with V-Stoptail checks all the boxes. It begins with a resonant 1.75”-deep, 17”-wide double-cutaway maple body with a lightweight chambered spruce center block running throughout, reinforcing the arched laminate top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance that fits modern stages.
The 24.6” scale length, “U” shaped maple neck and 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets provide easy playability with enhanced sustain and tone, perfect for deep bends and soaring leads.
Guitarists with Fortus’ shape-shifting talents demand versatility in their instruments to remain on top of their game, which is why a set of Custom Wound Filter’Tron™ pickups in the bridge and neck positions fit perfectly.
A master volume with treble bleed circuit allows you to throttle your amp without sacrificing your dialed-in tone, while a master tone with a no-load pot provides that organic vintage ‘Tron feel at the twist of a knob. Switch between pickup combinations with a three-way toggle switch, while a V-stoptail couples with a TonePros® Tune-o-matic Bridge with standard saddles to offer rock-solid tuning and stability. A Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut also minimizes friction between string and nut.
A player-centric instrument ready to rock any genre, the G6636-RF Richard Fortus Signature Falcon Center Block with V-Stoptail comes in a striking Black finish and is decked out with nickel hardware including the jeweled G-arrow knobs, pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays and headstock logo and tortoise pickguard, pickup bezels and binding.
