Fender is proud to introduce three highly distinctive new additions to its acclaimed Blacktop series, a family that expands the sonic horizons of classic Fender models with high-powered features and design modifications.

Using finger slides allows me to continue up a single string without having to interrupt my smooth, legato phrasing with an unwanted pick attack.
