Fender introduces its new Fender Select series, designed as “select instruments for select individuals.”

The Fender Select Stratocaster features a Dark Cherry Burst gloss-lacquer finish on a flame maple-top body. Its “C” shaped flame maple neck has a contoured heel, Bi-Flex truss rod system, a satin lacquer back finish and rear-headstock “Fender Select” medallion. The compound radius flame maple fretboard (9.5”-14”) has 22 medium jumbo frets, black pearloid position inlays and a gloss lacquer finish. The sound comes from new Fender Select Stratocaster single-coil neck, middle and bridge pickups with five-way switching and a no-load tone control designed to deliver the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed. Other features include a three-ply pickguard (parchment-black-parchment), two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles, staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware.

 

The Fender Select Stratocaster HSS shares the same features, with several exceptions: It takes the same elements as its triple-single-coil brother and amps it up with the extra power of a Fender Select Stratocaster humbucking bridge pickup and an Antique Burst gloss-lacquer finish, modern “C” shaped birdseye maple neck, and compound radius rosewood fretboard (9.5”-14”) with white pearloid position inlays.

The Fender Select Telecaster features a Violin Burst gloss-lacquer finish and natural binding on a honeycomb-chambered ash body with a solid flame maple top. Its modern “C” shaped birdseye maple neck has a contoured heel, Bi-Flex truss rod system, a satin lacquer back finish and rear-headstock “Fender Select” medallion. The compound radius birdseye maple fretboard (9.5”-14”) has 22 medium jumbo frets, black pearloid position inlays and a gloss lacquer finish. The sound comes from new Fender Select Telecaster single-coil neck and bridge pickups with three-way switching and a no-load tone control designed to deliver the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed. Other features include a three-ply pickguard (parchment-black-parchment), knurled chrome knobs, American Telecaster bridge with new American Standard bent steel saddles and stamped brass plate, staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware.

 

The Fender Select Carved Koa Top Telecaster features a Sienna Edge Burst gloss-lacquer finish on an empress body with a carved koa top. Its “C” shaped flame maple neck has a Bi-Flex truss rod system, a satin lacquer back finish and rear-headstock “Fender Select” medallion. The compound radius rosewood fretboard (9.5”-14”) has 22 medium jumbo frets, white pearloid position inlays and a gloss lacquer finish. The sound comes from Fender Select Telecaster single-coil neck and bridge pickups with three-way switching and a no-load tone control designed to deliver the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed. Other features include knurled chrome knobs, American Telecaster bridge with new American Standard bent steel saddles and stamped brass plate, staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware.

The Fender Select Precision Bass comes in a Two-color Sunburst gloss-lacquer finish and flame maple top.
