Fender Announce Elegant New Select Series Models

Fender's flagship posh guitars are back   08-Jan-13


The new Fender Select Carved Top Telecaster SH offers the feature of a chambered alder body on a Tele, a carved Tasmanian blackwood top and hand-stained Black Cherry Burst finish with gloss lacquer topcoat. Once again, it has a C-shaped flame maple neck with satin lacquer finish and Bi-Flex™ truss rod system, and a compound radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets.

The Fender Select Telecaster Thinline is a new take on the popular semi-hollow version of Fender's first ever guitar model. It has a semi-hollow ash body with a flame maple top and hand-stained Violin Burst finish with gloss lacquer topcoat. The Fender Select Telecaster Thinline with Gold Hardware offers the same specifications with the additional touch of gold hardware.

The final addition to the lineup is a bass guitar. Like its passive-electronics 2012 predecessor, the Fender Select Active Jazz Bass refines Fender's classic bass to a new level. Premium features include an alder body with a flame maple top and a hand-stained Tobacco Sunburst finish with gloss-lacquer topcoat, modern "C"-shaped quartersawn maple neck with a contoured heel, satin lacquer finish and Postflex™ graphite support rods, and a compound-radius fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets.

Additional features include dual Fender Select Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, active/passive mini-toggle switch, master volume knob and pickup pan knob, and three-band active EQ (treble, mid and bass boost/cut knobs).
