NAMM 2021 isn't taking place in the physical realm this year, but you'll find all the hottest January gear launches in our guide to the biggest guitar, amp and pedal releases of 2021 so far.
New features include the addition of stainless steel frets – a first for Fender guitars, to our recollection – as well as unique Augmented “D” neck profiles with ultra rolled fingerboard edges, tapered neck heels and speedy 10”-14” compound-radius, 22-fret fingerboards.
The guitars also boast advanced wiring options, sculpted rear contours, matching painted headstocks, sealed locking tuners, chrome hardware and bone nuts, and come with a molded hardshell case.
