I like guitars in the Fender style because they have sk

I like guitars in the Fender style because they have skinny necks.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been a Fender connoisseur. And to have my name associated with greatness like that, it’s amazing. I couldn’t be more proud of anything. My children, and then being associated with Fender. In that order!
One day, I was just fingering around on the keys of a Fender Rhodes piano, and I came up with this little riff, and all of a sudden, it morphed into a song. It had never been touched by a guitar, which was very weird for us. ‘Under the Ground‘ is the first song I have ever written that had nothing to do with the guitar.
I met Leo Fender, who is the guru of all amplifiers, and he gave me a Stratocaster. He became a second father to me.

The first amp I had back in the ’50s was a small Fender.

I’m left-handed, and it’s not very easy to find reasonably priced, high-quality left-handed guitars. But out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favorite. I’ve only owned two of them.
I love my Fender Rhodes. It’s been a part of my family since that keyboard came out, and I’ve had it reworked so that it’s in the best condition it’s actually ever been in. That is my baby.
What I think is cool about Fender, and what originally drew me to them, was the Fender electric guitar headstock, which I’ve never seen on another ukulele. I feel like a rock star when I’m tuning it.
I got my first real bass guitar in my hands when I was 14 – a 1957 Fender Precision, which is still hanging on the wall in my front room. I loved the heaviness of it and the feel of the wood. I still do.
I’ve been playing a Fender since 1963, and before that it was my dream guitar. I can’t endorse it more than that.
The Les Paul was more challenging because of the weight of it, but the tone was there that the Fender will never have and vice versa. So you have to make a decision as to what you’re going to have as your main instrument. After seeing Hendrix, I thought, ‘I’ll stick with the ‘Strat.’
I play a Fender Jazzmaster and three stacks and a combo, two old Marshall Plexis and a Hiwatt combo and a Hiwatt combo with Marshall cabs.
J Mascis
In early ’57, I bought a Fender Telecaster.

I’ve been called a point guard, I’ve been called a traffic cop, I’ve been called a ringmaster, a lion tamer, whatever. And I guess the thing about the traffic cop is I’m more of a rogue traffic cop because a good traffic cop doesn’t want any fender benders.

My brother was the first in Lancaster to have a Fender Stratocaster.
Without the Fender bass, there’d be no rock n’ roll or no Motown. The electric guitar had been waiting ’round since 1939 for a nice partner to come along. It became an electric rhythm section, and that changed everything.

With longevity comes, ‘Nothing is going to kill me; I cannot irreparably damage my career.’ Those days are over. The most I can sustain are fender benders.

One of the key guitars in my career has been an early-Seventies Fender Telecaster Deluxe that I had before Sonic Youth started and that I played pretty much throughout Sonic Youth.
The first guitar I ever picked up was an acoustic black Fender, so it makes perfect sense that Elias plays Fender guitars. As far as details, it’s simple; Elias and Fender have a great relationship.
I guess everybody saw it. It’s a deal where I’d been racing cars a long time and I knew going around the track the fender was on the tire hard.
