Fender Profile Information

#TBT: In February of 1967, @JimmyPage personalized his Telecaster by adding eight circular mirrors to the body. The mirrors not only gave the Tele a kinetic feel, but they also allowed Page to manipulate the stage lights around him during his two-year run with the Yardbirds. Click the link in bio for more.

This week we're looking at how pickups are made, here's how it works. 
1. WINDING: Pickup winding specialists use purpose-built machines to wind magnet wire onto bobbins. 2. ASSEMBLY: Single-coil wound bobbins get assembled into pickups by attaching covers, baseplates and leads, according to pickup model. Humbucking pickups get matched with a second coil, both are attached to a larger baseplate and specially wired to reduce hum. 3. POTTING: Most Fender pickups are “wax-potted” to reduce microphonic feedback. This involves using a custom vacuum potting machine to draw melted wax into the windings of the pickup. Depending upon the historic spec of a particular model or series, some pickups are shellac-potted or not potted at all. 4. INSTALLATION: Completed pickups are installed into pickguard assemblies, bridges or bezels, which are then screwed into guitars. Pickups can also be screwed directly into the body, such as Telecaster neck, Jazz and Precision Bass pickups. #InternationalGuitarMonth

Respected producer Iain Archer and young Scottish artist @RoarButler go way back. So it was no surprise to see the pair work in harmony when they met in Brighton for a songwriting session.

@melaniefaye plays a Strat because that’s what her heroes did. See how the Player Series Stratocaster connects the Nashville-based R&B artist to the legends she loves.
