Fender proudly announces its move to Fishman preamps with built-in tuners for all acoustic guitars with onboard electronics, and the release of two new acoustic guitars, including the “Dirty Donny Franken-Bucket”.
Frankenstein’s monster himself glowers from the custom-pinstriped top of the green-sparkle “Dirty Donny Franken-Bucket” guitar, from the twisted psyche of San Francisco hot rod artist “Dirty” Donny Gillies. Fender recently invited Gillies, who is well known for his graphics work with cars and skateboards, to work his monster magic on a single-cutaway dreadnought, and the resulting guitar was dubbed the “Franken-Bucket.”
The Dirty Donny Franken-Bucket features a laminated spruce top with scalloped X bracing, laminated mahogany back and sides, ivory neck and body binding, a laminated mahogany neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard and dual-action truss rod, pinstripe inlay motif on headstock and rosette, a Fender Fishman Presys preamp with a built in-tuner, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, black bridge pins with white dots, chrome hardware, die-cast tuners and a green-sparkle gloss polyurethane finish.
