Fen­der hits a Grand Slam!

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

Fen­der is proud to an­nounce it will of­fer gui­tar col­lec­tors and fans of Ma­jor League Base­ball (MLB) a new range of MLB-themed elec­tric gui­tars that “sound as great as they look”. Each Stra­to­caster gui­tar will fea­ture of­fi­cial team lo­gos along with cus­tom de­signed land­mark im­agery unique to the team’s mar­ket, as well as a MLB logo adorn­ing the neck plate.

The ini­tial group of gui­tars avail­able in­cludes the Ari­zona Di­a­mond­backs, Bos­ton Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles An­gels of Ana­heim, Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee Brew­ers, New York Mets, New York Yan­kees, Philadel­phia Phillies, St. Louis Car­di­nals and San Fran­cisco Gi­ants.

Each gui­tar fea­tures an alder body, maple neck with a mod­ern C-shape and 21 medium jumbo frets, three stan­dard sin­gle-coil Strat pick­ups, six-sad­dle vin­tage-style syn­chro­nised vi­brato, five-po­si­tion switch, mas­ter vol­ume and tone knobs, and stan­dard gig bag.

“Fen­der and Ma­jor League Base­ball are all-Amer­i­can orig­i­nals,” said Justin Norvell, Fen­der’s mar­ket­ing vice pres­i­dent. “Through this re­la­tion­ship, we’re ex­cited to ‘team up’ to pro­vide one-of-a-kind col­lectibles for mu­si­cians and base­ball fans alike. The con­nec­tions are in­trin­sic - base­ball bats and Fen­der gui­tars are both made from maple and ash, and tons of ballplay­ers are gui­tar play­ers. We’ve had more ca­sual or in­for­mal con­nec­tions with play­ers and teams for years, so this fur­ther so­lid­i­fies a re­la­tion­ship we’ve long val­ued and en­joyed.”

Fen­der and MLB of­fi­cially launched their re­la­tion­ship dur­ing the 2013 MLB All-Star Game at the New York Mets Citi Field by sell­ing limited edi­tion MLB All-Star Game Stra­to­caster gui­tars. Visit www.fen­der.com/mlb for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.
