Fender is updating it’s well regarded Fender Select Series with new set of guitars for 2013. Fender originally announced the new Fender Select series in January 2012 and they’re expanding the collection with 5 new guitars and a bass. Designed as “Select instruments for select individuals,” the Select series are true players’ instruments that put more than six decades of Fender experience and expertise into the guitars.
The 2013 update includes a carved maple top Jazzmaster, Stratocaster HSS, Telecaster HH, carved maple top Telecaster SH, Telecaster Thinline, and an active Jazz bass. How are these different from Fender’s standard versions of these guitars you ask… the obvious differences are highly figured exotic tone woods and tops. These finishes give the guitars a very high quality look and feel. The electronics are also different – Fender has built specially voiced Fender Select pickups. All of these appointments and updates provide the player a “pro player’s” guitar. If you’re looking for a high quality American made Fender but want something different than the standard Strats, Teles and Jazzmasters then the Fender Select series may offer you a nice alternative.
Our favorite of the series is the Telecaster HH with the sweet looking racing stripe down the middle.
