PRESS RELEASE – Fender Musical Instruments Corporation continues its 75th anniversary year with new gear personalized for every player to meet their aspirations – from new players and young guitarists starting their musical journey to enthusiasts and seasoned professionals. After welcoming more than one million players into the introduction of guitar, bass, and ukulele via the online learning app Fender Play® during the pandemic, interest in guitar continues to surge at an all-time high. Fender Squier is rising to the occasion, equipping players with the tools they need to fuel their musical expression
Fender Squier today announced a slate of new products for the second half of 2021. The introductions come as a means to support a growing cohort of pandemic players, songwriters, creators on social media, beginners and, of course, loyal professional musicians while continuing to push the boundaries of innovation. New additions include products across categories – from acoustics, Artist Signature Series electrics and amplifiers to Squier® guitars, pedals and accessories.
“The needs of today’s creators and guitar players are continually evolving, especially with the rise of home recordings and as new players boom from the pandemic,” added Justin Norvell, Executive Vice President, Product at Fender. “To meet this new demand, we’ve woven new specs and elements into these innovative instruments, introducing products that will ease the playing experience and inspire young, new players, but also professionals and fans of some of our most-esteemed Fender artists. From Artist signature and acoustic guitars to amps, pedals, Squier®, accessories and more – there’s something for everyone as we close out our iconic 75th anniversary year.”
