FenderDisplayThe Fender booth at NAMM is a staple at NAMM and is always a major draw. It’s no wonder seeing as they’ve been a consistent staple of guitarists from all walks of life around the world.

The main display of their booth is a testament and nod to their heritage and roots as an American and Californian based company.

There are way too many products to list and go into detail about, but a few Fender toys caught our attention while we were there.

To followup on the Stratocaster’s 60th anniversary last year, Fender is releasing their “10 for ’15” Limited Edition Collection, a series of 10 guitars that will be limited to 500 of each worldwide. These are works of art and unique in their own way.

Fender Hot Rod Deville ML

We also got a preview of the new Michael Landau signature amplifier, the Hot Rod DeVille™ ML. The new ML model is based on the Fender Hot Rod DeVille III, with tube circuitry and 60-watt output, two 12” speakers, spring reverb and an effects loop. The ML version ups the ante by incorporating several cool features that guitar players are sure to appreciate, such as volume-switching and boost capabilities. 

You’ll find Stratocastors and Telecastors and many other Fender guitars online at Best Buy
