The arrival of an icon - Fender


Fender is now available at the Yamaha Music Centre, in collaboration with Mike Audio, the official distributor for Fender in Sri Lanka.

Colombo, Sri Lanka, 6 November 2017- After the initial prototypes of the 40’s, Fender gave birth to the Stratocaster in the early 50’s, and the instrument would eventually become the standard by which all other guitars are measured. Think of any guitar virtuoso since Fender’s inception, all the way up to the present, and you can bet your last buck they were all Fender devotees.  From ‘Strat’ heads like Clapton, Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen to Telecaster aficionados such as Bob Dylan, Keith Richards and Bruce Springsteen, Fender has been the most consistent characteristic, among rock and roll hall of fame inductees. In fact, Jeff Beck possibly summed it up best, when he remarked, “With a Les Paul you just wind up sounding like someone else. With the Strat I finally sound like me.”

Over the years Fender has continually refined its guitars and the result is a master class in classic form and awe-inspiring function.  Fender’s iconic range continues to retain these renowned standards, while also adding several new models for entry level musicians and those who want that fabled Fender sound, without the professional price tag.

Developed by wunderkind Tim Shaw, the American professional Stratocaster is a result of the original model evolving, to meet the demands of the modern musician.
