Musician's Friend Highlights New American Standard Series Instruments to Celebrate June Fender Month

Direct marketer of music gear, Musician's Friend, is featuring Fender instruments, equipment and apparel through the month of June. The company is offering financing on Fender purchases made in June with no interest and no payments for 12 months. The new American Standard Series is among the featured Fender lines.

The Fender American Standard Telecaster Guitar has been redesigned in 2008 to incorporate modern components while staying true to the elements that have made the Fender Telecaster legendary since the 1950s. Improvements include redesigned bridges, neck and body finishes, and vintage-style bent steel saddles to better transfer string vibration. The American Standard Telecaster comes with American Series pickups and deluxe hardware with original '52 ash or alder body dimensions that deliver more resonance and tone.

[Fender's American Standard Precision Bass Guitar maintains the classic P-bass vibe and feel with the vintage body contour and radius. The upgraded bridge is an HMV Bridge (high mass vintage) that increases sustain and provides punchier tone. The new Fender/Hipshot tuning keys are 30% lighter, minimizing neck dip, and the P-Bass also sports a new finish on the graphite-reinforced neck and body.

The Fender American Standard Jazz Bass Guitar follows suit in blending traditional and contemporary design. Like the Precision Bass Guitar, it also features the lightweight Fender/Hipshot tuners and modernized HMV bridge. The Fender Jazz Bass sports a new finish and a thinner undercoat, enabling the body to breathe easier and improving overall tone.
