NYC Pedalboards is a company based out New York City (as one might have guessed) that was founded in 2001 by a gigging bassist named Mike Ruskin. He started by building a pedalboard for his band’s guitar player, and the concept took off from there. Since then, the company has grown to include artists like Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne) and Death Cab for Cutie.
Fender has introduced several new, limited-edition acoustic instruments. Models include the USA Select 1, Fender’s first acoustic guitar made in the US since the 1990s. Only 30 pieces are being released worldwide. The dreadnought guitar has a spruce top, flame maple back and sides, forward-shifted X bracing, gold hardware and a Fishman Sonitone pickup system.
