Fresh, Funky & Fender Vintage Guitars

Mustang Vintage Ad


Choosing a Fender these days can be like browsing the most awesome pawn shop in the world. Unique features, custom pickups and wild finishes all abound in the Pawn Shop, Custom & FSR series. There's a raft to choose from, some well known models done with a twist, some brought back from the archives and others are vintage inspired but wholly new designs. Any which way, if you want something a little different then Fender have an instrument for you.

Fender Telecaster Custom '72Telecaster

A versatile beast the old Tele, well known for "the twang" in country but it's been embraced by just about every genre going since it's creation. That's led to Humbucker Teles, 3 pickup Teles, sparkle finishes, 3 or 6 saddle bridges and all kinds of coil tapping/switching shenanigans.

We're quite fond of Telecaster Custom '72 for a blend of bucking power and single coil bite.

Famous for: No secret these days but Jimmy Page played that solo with a good ol' fashioned Telecaster.

Led Zeppelin Stairway To Heaven

Jazzmaster

Jazzmaster Advert

Intended to reach a hardcore Jazz market and perhaps replace the Strat at the top of the Fender family tree. While the Jazzmaster didn't quite succeed in this regard it is much loved by an entire generation of musicians. Tom Verlaine, J Mascis, Nels Cline & Thurston Moore to name a few. They don't come much more versatile than the JM. Particularly nice is the Classic Player FSR, Limited Edition finish, beefier pickups and the modern "C" shape neck that everyone loves for faster playing.

Famous for: All these guys. If we had to pick it would be Tom Verlaine, Marquee Moon is just the perfect match of man, music and twanging Jazzmaster.

Plus a bit of Maruee Moon, for Jazzmaster action and just because.

Fender MustangMustang

No messing, the Mustang was conceived as a beginners guitar back in the 50's and has been taken to the bosom of back to basics guitarists like Kurt Cobain, King Buzzo (Melvins), Frank Black & John Frusciante. We can see something of a thread developing, raw, muscular and unfussy (in a good way) guitarists to a man. The Mustang is often overlooked but it's not until you get one in your hands you realise how much damn fun it is to play.

Famous For: Go listen to some Nirvana, any excuse is a good one.

For amplification Fender offer many of their finest amps with upgraded speakers and fine finishes. For something with vintage character try the Pawn Shop series Excelsior 15 Watt Combo or little Greta portable amp.
