Fender’s new Blacktop series presents four classic models hot-rodded with humbucking pickups and other modifications, such as skirted amp-style knobs, bringing a whole new vibe to some longstanding favourite designs.
Manufactured in Fender’s Mexican Ensenada factory, these new Blacktops offer excellent build quality, tone and playability at an affordable price. In the UK they are retailing for £450-£500.
Given that a Custom Shop Fender manufactured in the USA can set you back several thousand pounds, the new Blacktops are likely to sell like hot cakes. Get one while you can.
