Inside NAMM 2019 | Fender

Once again, Fender has a booth chock full of gorgeous works of art that sounds fantastic too!

Fender has unveiled the legendary Jimmy Page Dragon Telecaster that is a faithful recreation of his original guitar from Led Zeppelin I! Super lightweight and comfortable, flashy and fun for the eyes, and sounds great for all your favorite tracks such as “Communication Breakdown” and “Dazed and Confused”!

Sam Ash Music was lucky enough to talk to Fender Master Builder Ron Thorn about his new Fender Tarot Tele (which will soon be available for purchase from Sam Ash Music). Ron worked with artists Fabio Listrani to develop the design for the main plate to make an incredibly intricate etching done all by hand! Even the P-90 pickups were hand-wound by Ron and he designed the “Brass Knuckle” bridge!
