    Twenty-eight years ago we lost Leo Fender, one of the best known names in Rock history, made through his iconic guitars and basses. This week we honor the talented inventor of electric guitar. The design of the week is inspired by the classic models that Leo Fender has eternalized. Message us for info on prices and available colours! Limited to 100 units.

Leo Fender was born on August 10, 1909 near Anaheim, California, and was an electronics enthusiast who got involved with guitar design after guitar-playing customers kept bringing him their external pickups for repair. Fender was the first to successfully design and market an electric guitar, the Broadcaster, in 1948. This model came to be the Telecaster two years later and became an immediate success.

In 1950 he brought a new sound and flexibility to the rhythm section of bands, with the well-known Fender’s Precision bass. In 1954 Fender introduced the Stratocaster, a flashier  double-cutaway body, three single-coil pickups and a revolutionary tremolo unit. Fender’s Strat has been the favored model of such virtuosic rock guitarists as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

He later founded G & L Musical Products (G&L Guitars) with his friend and former partner George Fullerton, which even today produces Fender-like instruments, often with improvements as they continued to design the guitars with emphasis on quality.

Leo Fender died on March 21, 1991, after suffering from Parkinson’s disease for many years. . . . . .

    Fender THE PINWHEEL Rotary Speaker Emulatorが入りました❗️
ロータリースピーカー効果を再現させるエフェクターです。
Eric師匠もCream時代の名曲“Badge”の印象的なリフでも使われています!
今でも、ステージには必ず、Leslieスピーカー(ロータリースピーカー)が鎮座しています👍
我々アマチュアだと、あの大きなスピーカーユニットをステージに持ち運ぶのも至難の業・・・
そこでこのThe Pinwheelの登場です(笑)
3種類のロータリースピーカーボイスを搭載し、
スロー/ファーストのスピードをフットスイッチで切り替え可能❗️
さらに 細かな設定もできるので表現力もバッチリ👌
これで、お悩み解決~😁 https://ameblo.jp/derek-music/entry-12448534317.html

    Also #onthisday, in 1991 – Conor Clapton, the 4-year-old son of rock guitarist Eric Clapton, dies when he falls out the window of a 53rd-floor apartment in New York. The maid was cleaning the window and left it open, and Conor fell to the roof of the building below. Clapton would later write ‘Tears in Heaven’. Saddest story I’ve ever heard.

    51 Years Ago Today – Eric Clapton is arrested in Los Angeles along with Neil Young, Richie Furay, and Jim Messina. The four are charged with “being in a place where it is suspected marijuana is being used.” Clapton is later found innocent, while the Buffalo Springfield guys receive a small fine. Clearly innocent! No one in the 60s smoked weed!
