If you love Fender guitars (and you probably do, don't you!) then the Fender American Standard Tour is something you simply can't miss! In true rock'n'roll style, Fender is taking their finest range - the American Standard, of course - on the road, showcasing it all over the UK this Summer. It'll be a fantastic opportunity for Fender aficionados to try out their instruments, enjoy some great live music and join interesting Q&A's with the Fender team, besides much more!
Fender is responsible for the most popular electric guitar ever - the Stratocaster - and the brand have been a staple in popular music since the birth of rock'n'roll. From Buddy Holly in the 50's, to The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix in the 60's, and all the way to Nirvana in the nineties and current bands such as the Arctic Monkeys and Catfish And The Bottlemen, pretty much everyone has used Fender guitars... it's actually quite hard to find someone who hasn't.
For this reason, Fender is synonymous with rock'n'roll and also one of the best-loved and recognisable American brands, ever. So it's no coincidence that their American Standard series, crafted in the USA, is their finest and also the perfect representation of what Fender is all about!
